Artistically fearless, Montreal band, Karkwa is riding the crest of their decade-long musical voyage. During that time, this 5 piece alternative rock band have released four albums,  all to critical acclaim and commercial  success. They have toured extensively across Canada and Europe, building  an incredible live show and a large, dedicated fan base.

Their fourth album, Les Chemins de Verre (The Glass Pathways), was  recorded  in  Paris  at  the  beautiful  "La Frette  Studios". Inspired by their surroundings and allowing their creativity to flow, the album was recorded without any pre-production. The result is a beautiful, lush collection of songs filled with soaring melodies and French lyrics. The album sways between delicate, acoustic, stripped-back  songs  to  rich  orchestrated  pieces,  taking  the listener on an emotional journey that transcends language. 

Les Chemins de Verre was released in Canada in March 2010 and has quickly launched Karkwa into the next stage of their career.  They have been showered with popular and critical acclaim, winning the prestigious Polaris Music Prize for Best Canadian Album in 2010, a prize which is voted on by over 200 respected Canadian music journalists regardless of sales or genre. Karkwa can lay claim to being the first Francophone artist to ever win this award.  In February 2011, they were also nominated for two Canadian Juno Awards for Best Alternative Album and Francophone Album of the Year. 

Their recent success and the popularity of the album with both French and Anglo audiences, has catapulted Karkwa into the international spotlight. One of the stand-out songs off the album "Le Pyromane" has recently been chosen for the upcoming Julia Roberts' produced film, "Jesus Henry Christ".    

The new record will be released in the US in late 2011, supported by their first extensive US tour.
