Montreal singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Patrick Krief is taking a big stride with his 4th solo album Automanic, a work that's truly epic, by every definition.

Following a devastating string of deaths in his life, and the end of a romance, Krief dealt with emotional trauma the way musicians do: by pouring all the heartbreak and grief and despair and fear into writing. His creative drive came with a dark underside of selfdestruction, a phase he's grateful to have emerged from relatively unscathed — stronger, even, but forever changed.

Documenting a period of shared grief and internal crisis in a song or a record (or two records) isn't unique, but Automanic isn't a mere document — it's an opus work, made by a musician who was pushed to the brink, and propelled to a creative peak.
