Josie Boivins dream has always been to be a musician. Well, that and to go to Mars. I love space. I love aliens. I love thinking that were not alone in this big strange universe, says the Montreal-based singer and multi-instrumentalist who records as MUNYA. Those things give me hope. Both the longing to make music and the desire for interplanetary travel come together in Boivins new album, Voyage to Mars. Named for Georges Méliès classic silent film Le Voyage dans la Lune, the record feels beamed in from another planet, suffused with an otherworldly light. Its music that looks out to great darkness of the sky and the stars beyond for the inspiration to pursue your dreams. Born the youngest of a large family in a small Quebec town, Boivins path to music was a wandering one. After a high school teacher discovered she could sing opera, Boivin spent years in the opera world, before switching to jazz in college. It wasnt until moving to Montreal that she began to hone her unique musical vision. After releasing a trilogy of EPs on Luminelle Records in 2018, Voyage to Mars marks MUNYAs official full-length debut. Yes, there is music or art that has a special power to take you somewhere else, she says. A certain emotion they give you. Sometimes you cant put a finger on it, but you know its there, and it affects you. Thats what I wanted to do. Voyage to Mars was entirely recorded in Boivins apartment during the past year. The longing to for exploration is palpable throughout the album, each one a shimmering rocket sent skyward.
