Ghostly Kisses is the melancholic music of French-Canadian singer and songwriter Margaux Sauvé. She began to play the violin at the age of 5 following in the footsteps of her family of musicians. It was only years later that she started to sing and wrote her first songs.
In 2017, her song Such Words reached more than 50,000 plays on Spotify 24 hours after its release. Ghostly Kisses was also part of the International Festival of Jazz of Montreal and Festival d’Été of Quebec and opened for international renowned artists such as RY X, Charlotte Cardin, Trixie Whitley and Milk & Bone in Canada and the US.
In 2018, she released “The City Holds My Heart” (EP) co-composed and produced by Louis-Étienne Santais. In 2019, Louis-Étienne and Margaux recorded “Alone Together”, an intimate acoustic EP with only live piano and voice versions of their songs. They also toured for the first time in North America and Europe and sold out many of their shows (London, Porto, Krakow, Bocholt, Toronto, Montreal, Lévis and Beloeil). Ghostly Kisses was also officially chosen to showcase at SXSW in Austin in March 2019. Finally, the acoustic version of “Empty Note” reached more than 1M views on YouTube only 3 months after its release. In June 2020, Ghostly Kisses will release “Never Let Me Go” (EP).
The name 'Ghostly Kisses' was inspired from reading William Faulkner’s poem 'Une ballade des dames perdues' and seemed like a beautiful reflection of Margaux's voice
