"These young ladies bring it all to the table: heart, passion and energy. Natural story tellers with a knack for the quirks of life that are universal to us all. Bold harmonies and insightful lyrics woven together with melody and honesty; a duo you will want to see again and again."
Natalie Inga Gauthier and Sonia Deleo formed a duo for a tour in January 2016, coinciding with the opening of Calgary's Music Mile. After the success of their experiment, they became The Fig & The Flame, continuing to gig in Calgary and area. Highlights of their first year as a band include the release of their first album, When the World is Calling and being regional finalists in the CBC Searchlight Contest 2017, with their song, Hundred Lips.
They met through theatre in 2013, while playing Trojan Women in a feminist theatre cabaret in Calgary, and the Universe led them to this musical collaboration when the timing was right.
"...From upbeat and folksy to reflective and jazzy, with lots of stories that add so much depth and unique meaning to their music. They both have gorgeous voices and put on a show that invoked a range of emotions."
"Natalie and Sonia create a spirit and a sound together that seems to surround you and hold you in a moment of beauty. They are so musically connected that one just wants to sit back and be taken on the journey."
