Growing up in Edmonton with a mother who sang in a folk trio and a father who performed First Nations ceremonial music, Couture was destined to sing from a very young age. Honing her skills by performing in local choirs and musical theatre Couture moved to Vancouver to study at Vancouver Film School. After working in film and television for a decade Couture returned to music; releasing Fell Out Of Oz in 2005 to critical acclaim. Three EP’s and three albums have since followed and Couture’s most recent release, The Living Record in 2012. This bright, beautifully-orchestrated indie folk album possesses sweet, idiosyncratic vocals reminiscent of artists like Regina Spektor and Jane Siberry and a luscious palette of sonic styles – fuzzy guitar, bluegrass-style pickin’, soulful cello, quirky chorus-like vocal arrangements and a touch of cabaret – and not a moment of self-indulgence to be found.
