For Gentiane MG, music is first and foremost a powerful tool of expression that has allowed her to develop her own potent, imaginative, and sensitive musical language. Alongside her accomplices, bassist Levi Dover and drummer Louis-Vincent Hamel, she has created a rich universe that transcends genres. "Her music does not preclude access to other art forms, but rather extends and illuminates the thoughts and emotions that follow one another along the journey of life." (Jean-Pierre Alenda, Magazine Couleurs Jazz, Paris, 2022)

Her first two albums Eternal Cycle (2017) and Wonderland (2019) earned her numerous accolades, including the Radio-Canada Révélation Jazz Award in 2018 and the OPUS Award for Discovery of the Year in 2020. Her latest release, Walls Made of Glass (2022), showcases the full extent of her rare talent. "Gentiane MG confirms her stature as a major artist. There is nothing glib, nothing faked, simply confident creativity." (Keith Black, Winnipeg Free Press, 2022)
