Profile:
Bruce Cawdron (marimba, drums, melodic percussion)
Beckie Foon (cello)
Jamie Thompson (drums, percussion)
Brian Sanderson (violin)
Jérémi Roy (bass)

Former members :
Sarah Page (harp, dulcimer)
Andrew Barr (marimba, drums, melodic percussion)

Originally a duet (Cawdron and Foon), their first release as Esmerine, outside of their capacity within "Godspeed You! Black Emperor", "A Silver Mt. Zion" and "Set Fire To Flames".

Musically closer to Rachels or Clogs than any of the previous GY!BE splinter projects, Esmerine takes the guitars out of the equation, and is based almost entirely around drums, melodic percussion and cello.

For their third album (2011), the band develops an expanded line-up with Page and Barr as new members.

For their fourth album (2013), with Pagé and Barr increasingly occupied with Barr Brothers duties, Esmerine solidified its touring line-up as a quartet with Jamie Thompson and Brian Sanderson.
