Hey! I’m Ché Aimee Dorval, a Canadian singer-songwriter who has been making music for over 10 years as a solo artist. I’m also one half of the ambient old time-y country duo “Casualties of Cool” along with Devin Townsend.
I’m releasing an album of all new originals that I’ve written throughout the year titled “Between The Walls and The Window”! I’ve put my blood, sweat, tears and all of my money into this thing and because of that I’ve been able to do exactly what I want with it.
The magical Shawn F Cole produced it, Bob Rock (!) was kind enough to mix 3 tracks and I got to play with some truly amazing musicians. Paul Rigby, Darren Parris and Daniel Ruiz were the main players in the band and their work is beautiful.
This album would not be what it is if not for my experiences writing and touring with Devin in Casualties of Cool. That experience really lit a fire under my ass this year. It inspired me to put my head down and and really go after what I want and it has pushed me to grow and to change as an artist. Witnessing first hand how incredibly hard Devin works to communicate his vision to all of you is illuminating. I learned that great art is perseverance; through your own insecurities, through the doubt of others and through whatever hiccups that may, and ultimately always do, arise.
I also owe so much of this record to you guys! Much of my new found confidence, drive and motivation that led to the making of this record is because of your kindness and support. Many of you have reached out to me and have shared your stories of how my music has touched you in some way and really, that is all I have ever wanted to do as an artist.
I’ve always longed to be the kind of artist who helps heal, comfort or soothe a person when they need it because that’s what music has always done for me. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
So anyways, I’m just so excited to share this new album with you! And that’s a new feeling for me…there’s no feeling of foreboding here. None. Just some out of character pride and a little impatience. Like, fuck man, when is Dec 8th gonna get here? When can I DO this?
So I give you The Preorder! You get a little something right away, I get a little something out there sooner. It’s good. It’s win win. There are some perks that come with pre-ordering “Between The Walls and The Window”, some of them are a little odd; a Messy Karaoke experience…too much? Not enough?
Some I think you might really like; a demo version of my song “Low” mixed by Devin Townsend (he also plays bass on it) and it will only be available to pledgers.
Also 5% of the total pre-order campaign proceeds will be donated to my uncle Pat Dorval’s Cancer Fund. He was diagnosed with esophageal cancer this past summer and I’d like to do what I can to help lighten his load so he can focus all of his energy into fighting this thing. He is my heart and is the closest thing I have to a father so please send him all of your healthy loving vibes as well:)
Thanks for being here with me and I hope you like it!
Here’s a download of the new Ché Aimee Dorval Album with a little bonus track just for pledgers!
I’ve included the original demo version of Low for you guys to enjoy! I was having a hell of time trying to mix it so Devin lent a helping hand and did it for me! He also plays bass on it, which i think really made the track.
I wrote and recorded this baby around the same time Dev and i were getting ready to play the Ramblin’ Man Fair last year and it was the song that ended my long bout of writers block for my solo stuff and led to writing this album. Not to toot my own horn or anything but i also played all of the guitar and programmed the drums….i’m a little proud ;-)
Children’s author and artist Roz Maclean designed this beautiful poster for my upcoming album release party!
It’s been over 10 years since I’ve thrown an album release party so this is poster marks a very special and exciting day for me. Pick up a signed 16 × 20 print while you can:)
A signed physical copy of my new album “Between The Walls and The Window” and a digital download of the album plus the bonus track—you will receive the digital download on the release date and the physical copy on or a bit after the release date.
Lyrics are very important to me. Everything i sing, i mean and all of it holds some kind of significance in my life. I miss the days of buying a cd and finding a little lyric book in it, ya know? I used to treasure those and have always wanted to make my own. So here’s it is!
Why not grab em all? Wear the shirt while listening to the jams while reading the lyric sheet while staring into the abyss of the poster.
Signed poster of this guy! Much like the teen beat poster of JTT back in the 90’s that i used to make-out with every night before bed. By Nicole Gurney Photography.

Listen to the new album while wearing a shirt.
You provide the pants unless it’s a shirt-cockin’ kinda day.
Pick 3 songs you’d love to hear me cover, I’ll choose one and send you a recording of it! Hope you like mass amounts of harmonies and slightly out of tune guitars!
Let’s get together on Skype and have a time! You can experience how awkward i really am in person! 30 beautiful min!
I wore this vintage dress on one of our photoshoots. Its real pretty. Your girlfriend/mom/drag friend/you will love it.
It’s a size 4 i think?
Join me and some friends for a night of karaoke! This is how i sustained my creative spirit when i was too scared to actually book a show! But i’m not a giant pussy anymore so lets just celebrate the musical stylings of Mr. Tom Jones cause it’s fun.
