Montreal-based singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Geoffroy makes a point, in both life and music, to weave a tale with his words; one that asks audiences to dig deep.
Following his EP Soaked In Gold (2015), Geoffroy released his debut album Coastline in March 2017, earning critical and commercial success while the album landed on the Polaris Music Prize long list and garnered 25 million streams. Two years later, he returns with 21 Days, a new upbeat and mesmerizing single that he composed in Los Angeles with his bandmate and producer Clément Leduc.
Geoffroy flew to India to film the video for 21 Days with director Didier Charette, a good friend and frequent collaborator, and DOP Derek Branscombe. True to form, Geoffroy was in search of adventure and this time he travelled across Rajasthan from cities to the desert in 50°C heat. The result is a breathtaking, beautiful video that showcases an intoxicating joie de vivre and the real connection between the artist and the people he encounters on his journey.
Watch and share the video for 21 Days via YouTube.
The single is out now on all music services.
In the two years since Coastline, Geoffroy and his band experienced a groundswell of support in Quebec, culminating in a sold-out headlining show at Montreal’s MTelus (FKA Metropolis). They toured 1000-2000 capacity venues in Europe with Fakear and Møme, and also started to write the next album. Audiences in Mexico, the United States, Brazil and Germany grew organically and showed enthusiasm for the Montrealer’s music. His single Sleeping on My Own was a big sensation, racking up over eight million streams on Spotify.
By the time he sat down to record his follow-up album, Geoffroy had matured as a musician, becoming a more detailed, research-driven songwriter and producer.
