With her dark, rich voice and his feel-them-in-your-bones harmonies, the pair’s sensual interpretation of songs both original and borrowed is at once heartfelt an...d mischievous. Since their debut at local music festival Shine On, the duo has charmed Winnipeg audiences as opener for the Justin LaCroix Band and feature of the Fall 2010 Local Shop Awesome fashion show. Accompanied by an ever-evolving assortment of instruments, the pair offer up their own take on what makes a young girl cry, a grown man sigh, and what’s really going on behind the eyes of the lone old-timer at the dive bar. With their bluegrass- and folk-inspired numbers, Fire & Smoke’s haunting style and boldly intimate storytelling will leave you with an ache in your soul, a song in your heart, and a knowing twinkle in your eye. Marie Josée Clément was born an artist. Even in her sleep, her songs dance on her lips. She has been to the podiums of International festivals such as the Ganby, the Gala Manitobain de la chanson and she´s also opened for Adréa Lyndsay at the Coup de Coeur francophone. Her original voice is filled with jazz and decorated with the sounds of percussion which makes people realize she has a suitcase full of talent.
