I was born and raised in the small northern Ontario town of Smooth Rock Falls in a francophone family. A small community, nestled on the banks of the Mattagami river, where French and English cultures collide, blend and transform endlessly. I distinctly remember telling my mother at the age of 7, that I would become a singer when I grew up. I have been fortunate to have had many opportunities to get on stage and perform at several regional and provincial francophone contests. I have honed my songwriting skills in many workshops and alongside many established francophone artists. My determination to follow my dreams left me inspired to become the singer/songwriter I told my mother I would be.
Two years ago, I traveled to Wilmington, North Carolina for a One Tree Hill convention and I ended up sharing the stage with some of my idols, Tyler Hilton, Wakey Wakey and Mike Gossin from Gloriana and we sang « When the stars go blue ». From then on, something in me just lit up: I knew in every cell of my being that I wanted to write « new country » songs- that had the feel, the words, the style I had been longing for. I have spent the last two years working on songwriting, crafting melodies, building a network and my fan base. The pandemic has pushed me to try more online intimate live performances. I feel I am now ready to take the next big step : record my first EP of my compositions and share it with the world.
