Catching Up With Myriam Gendron

Myriam Gendron is balanced between opposing forces: between songwriting and poetry, English and French, acoustic folk and chaotic post-rock. Her third album, Mayday, is a continuation of this balance: a meditation on grief, sorrow, and most importantly, survival. Ahead of its May 10 release, we sat down with Gendron, discussing Leonard Cohen, recording with Jim White, and the intersection of poetry and songwriting.
