Alejandra Ribera is a Montreal based pop and jazz singer-songwriter, who performs material in English, French and Spanish. Aptly described by songwriter Jim Corcoran as “serenely sensual, poetic, playful and profound,” Alejandra Ribera is a Canadian singer-songwriter with Scottish and Argentine roots. Discovered by CBC radio during an extended residency at Toronto’s Cameron House, Ribera released the self-produced Navigator in 2009.
There’s a timeless approach to the production which Ribera entrusted mixer Trina Shoemaker (Sheryl Crow) and engineer L. Stu Young (Prince) to help her achieve. “I wanted to make a record that sounded classic, simple and unencumbered by the production trends of the day. I knew it would take courage to strip everything down and so I needed a very particular team that would push me every step of the way.” Equal parts subtle and nourishing, all these elements were carefully crafted with her long time collaborators and Montreal-based band Jean-Sebastien Williams and Cédric Dind-Lavoie. With their talent in tow Ribera has created THIS ISLAND, a place she invites us to visit, to dream and to celebrate that light that she is seeking wherever she goes.
