Montreal based Helena Deland’s song writing is strongly emotion driven.
Catchy though unpredictable, avoiding to land quite where you would expect it to, her sincere pop is feminine and dreamily immersive. Originally a solo act, she now fronts a four-piece band: the intimate impulse of composing intertwines with the concerted endeavor of deep soundscaping.
Helena Deland has been subtly collecting songs for a while now. Her ever growing interest for words and literature and her constant journal keeping has made her songwriting increasingly coherent and mature. Recent collaborations and friendships have given her the tools and the will to share her music, which is deeply rooted in personal experience.
Originally from Québec City, it is in Montreal that her music is shaped. After having collaborated with artists from different backgrounds such as Men I Trust, Ludovic Alarie and Cri, she teamed up with Jesse Mac Cormack to record her first group of songs, a powerful EP called Drawing Room.“Fortunately, Helena Deland’s career is only beginning.” – Catherine Genest – Voir
