JUNO award-winning artist iskwē shares The Stars - a reimagination of her album acākosīk. The independent release features new arrangements (by Darren Fung) of six songs with iskwē accompanied by a trio of piano (Michael Shand), cello (Mariel Gonzalez), and violin (Laura C Bates) recorded live-off-the-floor at Revolution Recording in Toronto and a dramatic orchestral reimagining of “Night Danger (Lovers Mix)” recorded with the FILMharmonic Orchestra (Prague). The Stars is the inverse of her 2019 album acākosīk, starting with the title which is the English translation of the cree word acākosīk. Where acākosīk is a blaze of sonic exploration, The Stars is an elegant and intimate collection of songs allowing iskwē’s songwriting, voice, and spirit to shine. Where acākosīk demanded our attention, The Stars invites us into an emotional and soulful experience with iskwē.
