AboutLydia Képinski

With her eccentric personality, Lydia Képinski never hesitates to use candid language and create tragicomic images. I play French music, pop when I feel care free, progressive during mood swings, classic when I push myself and rap when I drink, she explains.

Biography

Lydia Képinski was born in Montréal in 1993. As a child from franco-polish origins, she grew up listening to French artists such as Barbara, Brassens and Gainsbourg. After having studied classical piano, she delves into pop music and teaches herself to play guitar in highschool.

In 2012, the singer-songwriter participates in CEGEP en spectacle, winning the prize Creation at the national final. A few years later, Lydia Képinski makes it to the pancanadian finals of the competition Univers-cité, finishing third, and winning the prize Coup de coeur du public for which she received a generous grant.

After her impactful appearances in festivals such as Coup de coeur francophone, le Festif! de Baie-St- Paul, Zone Homa, FAST and FRINGE, Képinski finds her way to the finals of the 2016 edition of the Festival international de la chanson de Granby. Her stellar performances during the festival lead her to win nine prizes including the SOCAN award for her song Apprendre à mentir.

This fall, Lydia breaks onto Quebec'ss music scene revealing her soft yet bitter four song EP produced by Blaise B. Léonard (ex-Hotel Morphée). Her first excerpt, Apprendre à mentir, an energetic ballad punctuated with string arrangements, reveals her affinity with pop culture, while remaining true to her ironic self. With her eccentric personality, Lydia never hesitates to use candid language and create tragicomic images.

While promoting her first mini-album, Lydia performed as an opening act for established artists such as Dimoné, Alex Nevsky, Groenland, Charlotte Cardin, Safia Nolin and Pascale Picard.

I play French music, pop when I feel care free, progressive during mood swings, classic when I push myself and rap when I drink, explains Lydia Képinski.
