Delights Of My Life

Eric Chenaux is a guitarist, singer, improvisor, and composer who has released eight full-length solo albums of avant-pop and out-ballads that juxtapose crooning vocals with bent-and-fried guitar, all on Montréal-based imprint Constellation. Prior to his move to France in 2011, Chenaux was a key figure in Toronto’s fertile avant/improv music scene throughout the 1990s and 2000s, releasing a solo album of instrumental improv guitar in 1999 and co-founding the experimental music label Rat-drifting in 2001, which documents a dynamic cross-section of iconoclastic Toronto experimental musics. Previously (1988-1993) he was the guitarist/vocalist of Toronto postpunk group Phleg Camp and the related duo Lifelikeweeds. He has performed and recorded with countless artists, including Ryan Driver, Sandro Perri, Eloïse Decazes, Martin Arnold, Radwan Ghazi Moumneh, John Oswald, Michael Snow, Bass Clef, Han Bennink, Christine Abdelnour, Josephine Foster, Norberto Lobo, and many more. Chenaux also composes for film and contemporary dance, including a long-standing association with conceptual filmmaker Eric Cazdyn for his solo music, and in a recurring collaboration with multi-media and sound installation artist Marla Hlady.

Ryan Driver is a songwriter, improvisor, and multi-instrumentalist based in Toronto, Canada.. He is the leader of The Ryan Driver Sextet and The Titillators. Besides his own projects, Ryan has sung and/or played piano, flute, analogue synthesizer, guitar, melodica, and/or his simple homemade instruments (thumb-reeds and streetsweeper bristle bass) with frequent collaborators Eric Chenaux, Sandro Perri, Jennifer Castle, Tamara Lindeman (The Weather Station), Alex Lukashevsky, Doug Tielli, Nick Fraser, Rob Clutton, Lina Allemano, Thom Gill, Brodie West, Michael Davidson, Martin Arnold, and many others. Driver has performed around the world including countless festival appearances. His extensive recorded output is available mainly through Rat-drifting (Canada), Barnyard Records (Canada), Fire Records (UK), Tin Angel Records (UK), and Apres-Midi (Japan). 

Philippe Melanson is a prolific session drummer and percussionist from Acadie, Canada and is currently living and working in Toronto. He has played in Bernice, lune très belle, blessings, The Titillators, Ryan Driver Sextet, magiceyeimage and Marianne Trudel Septet. He has also contributed to music by The Weather Station, Sarah Mclauchlan, Martha Wainwright and more.

Together, Eric Chenaux Trio releases Delights Of My Life (Constellation/Murailles Music) in spring 2024.
