    Chic Gamine bids a fond farewell to Ariane

    Hey there friends,

    Hope you’re doing all well…

    This is hard for us, so we’ll just say it: Ariane Jean, one of the four A’s of Chic Gamine, one of US, one of the best, most talented, lovely, funny, wonderful people in our lives, has decided it’s time for her to leave the band and move on to other things in life that are important to her. It’s bittersweet, because we love her and we’ll miss her, but we do also want the best for her and want her to be where her heart is. Here’s what Ariane has to say about leaving:

    " I’m a lucky girl.  For the past six and a half years of my life, I’ve travelled the world making music with the loveliest travel companions a person could ask for- four of the most talented musicians one could find, and for the last four years, two very professional band family members.

    Chic Gamine’s been a huge and important part of my life, for the past few years, and I’ve been flying by the seat of my pants, following the ebb and flow and all the ups and downs that this crazy business has offered from the start.  It’s been a great adventure and I treasure every part of it!

    It is with much sadness and joy that I take my leave from this beautiful project in search of something a bit more quiet and simple.  

    I am so grateful for the moments I’ve shared with my band mates, all the wonderful friendships we’ve forged, and for the beautiful music we made together throughout the years! I’m so proud of what we’ve accomplished and look forward to seeing our beautiful baby continue to flourish for years to come!

    Annick, Andrina, Alexa and Sacha; I have so much love, admiration for each of you!  Thank you for your friendship, and thank you for sharing your wonderful musical brains with me for the last six and a half years!  I know that there is so much more in store for Chic Gamine and am looking forward to watching all the success and accolades roll in!  I believe in you!!

    Thank you to our fans for your constant love and support!  Your presence, every step of the way, has made this experience even more full and special! There is so much good stuff to come from Chic Gamine and I know you’re gonna love it so keep listening!

    Ariane

    Chic Gamine will go on; we’re working on a new album, we’ve got some shows coming up in 2014 and beyond, and we’re very excited about the future (we may have mentioned something about that in earlier posts). But for now, we’d like to honour Ariane and her part in making Chic Gamine and our music what it is. We’d like to tell you how pretty she is when she wakes up in the morning, how silly she is - some of you may already have noticed -  how easily music comes to her, how thoughtful and caring she is, how beautiful a human being she is, how much we’ll miss all the things that make her who she is… We love her, we know YOU love her. If you have anything to share with/about her, this is one place where it will be appreciated!

    Thanks for being with us, friends! We’ll be in touch…

    Love,

    Chic Gamine

    Chers amis,

    Nous espérons que vous vous portez bien!

    Ce que nous avons à vous dire n’est pas facile; notre chère Ariane Jean - une des quatre “A” de Chic Gamine et une des personnes les plus douces, rigolotes, talentueuses et merveilleuses de notre connaissance - a décidé de quitter le groupe pour profiter pleinement d’autres aspects importants de sa vie.  Nos sentiments sont partagés entre le regret de sa présence et le bonheur de savoir qu’elle suit son coeur… nous savons qu’elle se doit de le faire et nous l’encourageons. Ariane a quelques mots à vous dire:

    “Comme je suis chanceuse… Depuis six ans et demi je sillonne le monde en musique avec les meilleurs compagnons de voyage que l’on pourrait espérer – quatre musiciens de grand talent, et, depuis quatre ans, deux personnes de soutien extraordinaires.

    L’aventure de Chic Gamine a occupé ces dernières années une place prépondérante dans ma vie, une aventure où l’improvisation et l’instinct m’ont permis de naviguer tous les flux et reflux, les hauts et les bas qui caractérisent la vie d’artiste itinérante. Une grande aventure dont je chérirai le souvenir toute ma vie. C’est donc à la fois avec tristesse et joie que je tire ma révérence de ce très beau projet qu’est Chic Gamine pour trouver un mode de vie plus simple et serein.

    Je suis énormément reconnaissante envers les membres de Chic Gamine pour les merveilleux moments vécus ensemble, pour les amitiés inaltérables que nous avons forgées et pour la belle musique que nous avons créée au fil des ans. Je suis tellement fière de ce que nous avons accompli et j’ai hâte de voir quels beaux succès attendent encore Chic Gamine à l’avenir!

    Annick, Andrina, Alexa et Sacha : Je vous aime et vous admire tous. Je vous remercie de votre amitié. Cela a été une joie et un privilège de faire de la musique avec de grands talents comme vous. Je sais que Chic Gamine ira bien loin, et je suivrai avec fierté tous les exploits et les succès que vous réserve l’avenir. Je crois en vous!

    Je tiens à dire un GROS merci à nos fans pour leur amour et leur soutien! Votre accompagnement fidèle tout au long de notre périple a rendu cette expérience encore plus précieuse et significative. Chic Gamine a encore beaucoup de belles choses à vous faire découvrir, et à aimer – croyez-moi – alors, restez à l’écoute!”

    Oxo

    Ariane”

    Chic Gamine tient la route; nous préparons notre prochain album, des spectacles sont à l’horaire pour 2014-15, et nous sommes très excités par ce que l’avenir nous réserve. Mais pour l’instant, nous aimerions continuer à honorer Ariane et sa contribution à la création de Chic Gamine et de notre musique.  Nous allons nous ennuyer d’elle et de sa folie (elle en a un peu beaucoup), de la tête qu’elle a le matin quand elle se réveille (trop cute), de toute la musique qu’elle a dans l’âme, de son affection, de sa gentillesse et de l’être extraordinaire qu’elle est. Nous l’aimons beaucoup… nous savons que vous l’aimez vous aussi. Ne vous gênez pas de lui laisser savoir… c’est le lieu, le temps parfait pour le faire.

    Merci de nous accompagner, les amis! À bientôt, c’est promis!

    Avec amour,

    Chic Gamine
