compositions by Arielle Galante as well as a few covers, varying in genre from Folk and Jazz to Country and Rock.
Fresh from Miami's Songwriters scene, Arielle moved back home to Chicago, found some awesome musicians to
play with, and after about 3 months of trying to find a good name, Cantique began.
