Biography

Laurence-Anne is a self-taught singer and guitarist who was a teenager when she wrote her first songs. The young woman was inspired by Feist and at first was really drawn towards the minimalist indie folk sound. Once she arrived in Montreal, she started leaning towards a more rock sound. She traded her acoustic instrument for an electric one, and in 2017 landed herself in the Francouvertes finals. Two years later, her first album Première apparition was named on the long list of the prestigious Polaris Prize, and reached the top of CISM’s year-end best-of chart for French albums. The new darling of critics and college radios performed at all of Quebec’s big festivals (Noce, FME, Frimat, FEQ, Festif) and even tested the waters in France (MaMA, Aurores Montréal) before returning home to record Accident, an EP with a touch of punk, indie-pop and tropical vibes. A fertile and astonishing sonic exploration that led her to the road of Musivision, a second album with dream pop, art rock, cosmic funk and synthwave tints. Co-directed by Félix Petit (Bellflower, Les Louanges), the opus marks a turning point in Laurence-Anne's young career with its polished production and catchy groove.

Press Quotes

Pour son deuxième, et très réussi, album, Laurence-Anne nous donne littéralement à voir des mélodies aussi psychédéliques qu’elles sont douces et groovy. Qu’elle chante en français, en anglais ou en espagnol, l’artiste nous envoûte lentement pendant treize morceaux d’une grande cohérence.

Amélie Revert, Journal Métro

Avec sa pop libre empreinte d’une « douceur étrange », Laurence-Anne est l’une des artistes les plus intéressantes de sa génération.

Josée Lapointe, La Presse

Musivision : un fascinant labyrinthe en musique, avec des mélodies douces et caressantes pour ne pas se perdre. En vérité, l’album, sans crier gare, va quelque part. Mais point de divulgâchage : à vous d’aller jusqu’au bout.

Sylvain Cormier, Le Devoir

With Musivision, Laurence-Anne proves that she is one of Quebec's top acts to follow in years to come. Musivision is made of dreams from which we don't wake up. At least, not right now.
