"This record was pure joy to produce. Mireille wrote amazing music and sang so beautifully. And Luca, Logan and Anthony brought so much to the music. One of my favorite productions." (David Binney) Complete artist, entire musician, this is how one could describe Mireille Boily, who simultaneously wears the hats of singer, pianist, improviser, composer, lyricist and orchestrator. With a rich and vast professional experience, Mireille is a jazz musician respected both in Quebec and abroad. She has completed several international tours, including recently in China, as a soloist for the show Cavalia. We could hear it in jazz clubs from Beijing to Buenos Aires through Sao Paulo. Mireille is an integral part of the Montreal jazz scene, lending her voice to multiple composers (Jean-Nicolas Trottier, Philippe Côté, Joel Kerr, Rafael Zaldivar). The Orchester National de Jazz de Montréal commissioned her a work, "Les chants du Phoenix", for which she was awarded by the Conseil des Arts et Lettres du Québec. After three independently produced albums, Mireille Boily signs her fourth opus. Directed by David Binney and recorded in Los Angeles with a group chosen to measure, "Moving Refuges" is a poetic fresco rooted in the four elements, honoring the path taken during a deep inner quest.
