Categorizing Jorane and her music is not an easy task because of the unique way this talented artist expresses voice and instrument to create a sound that is distinctively her own. Jorane's haunting voice and virtuoso cello playing captivates her audience by weaving sonic dreamscapes. On her new album, The You and the Now, Jorane explores new musical terrritory by embracing the power of words. For the first time, she has collaborated with other songwriters in order to deliver a deeply personal and introspective body of work to a new audience in the U.S. Jorane invited into the studio distinquished writers; Lisa Germano (Simple Minds, Indigo Girls), Simon Wilcox (Three Days Grace, Randy Bachman) and Shira Myrow. Produced by the innovative Michael Brook (Brian Eno, The Pogues, Youssou N'Dour), The You and the Now is a collection of songs that will appeal to those looking for something more unique than the average singer-songwriter. This release also includes a duet with the inimitable Daniel Lanios, who wrote and lends his voice and guitar playing to the only French song on this album "Pour ton sourire."

"I know Jorane since a long time, I bought every single albums she made so far (I'm from Quebec), because you never know what the next song, the next mood will be; this album is up to her reputation: creative, outstanding, unique. You have everything: her famous non-lyrical songs, sad and touching Red Mountains, even an "I Feel Love" remix! Every tracks is worth hearing.
This is a must, for those of you who want something different."
Not just another Tori Amos.

"She may seem like Tori Amos in this work, but she's (also) so much more. A virtuosic "raphaelite" beyond the scope of Tori Amos, and not just on the periphery of the grunge-alternative-contemporary scene anymore. You go Jorane and Sarah Slean! Please replace the likes of Sarah McLachlan and Chantal Kreviazuk who have sold out 50-75%."

"The You and the Now has been released in different versions in Canada, France, Germany, and a few months later in the USA. The French 2-CD version includes the EP Évapore and two bonus tracks. Complete track listings are at jorane.com; as of this writing, amazon is somewhat confused."
