Tess LeBlanc – Moon Maiden
Tess LeBlanc is a singer/songwriter from Vancouver, Canada. She is also a harpist and uses that skill in her new song “Moon Maiden” effectively by setting subtle organic accents in the otherwise ethereal synth-pop track. That gives the mythical story she has in mind a perfectly dreamy soundtrack.
“I’ve always loved the moon – its mysterious beauty and its classical ties to femininity. ‘Moon Maiden’ was partially inspired by the Chinese legend of Chang’e, who fled to the moon after achieving immortality. I wanted to capture that isolation and longing, trying to be heard when your words are sucked into space. The moon maiden is still up there, all alone.”
