Annie France Noël

At 27 years old, the captivating Montreal singer-songwriter who hails from Rosaireville, New Brunswick has toured for five years with her band and sold over 140 000 records on two continents. Her ability to compose rousing, heart-wrenching narratives from everyday tales of love, friendship and heartbreak has been compared to the sharp wit of Courtney Barnett, the rambling honesty of Bob Dylan and the high-flying sincerity of Dolly Parton.

Press Quotes

Étrange paradoxe : voilà un album de rupture qui nous met le sourire aux lèvres. C’est rock avec un fond country, c’est plein d’âme et d’humour.

Le Devoir

LeBlanc allows herself to be vulnerable throughout the album, especially during 'I Ain’t Perfect, Babe', a slower and soulful track than the rest of the album, but she stays unapologetic about her flaws and fearless in addressing them.

Spill Magazine

On y retrouve avec plaisir la jeune femme culottée qui aime les guitares rugueuses, qui s'approprie du Motörhead avec son banjo en folie, mais qui est tout aussi à l'aise dans le bluegrass, le country-folk ou le western spaghetti.

Alain de Repentigny, La Presse

Depuis son EP, on savait que la Lisa LeBlanc version anglaise nous plaisait beaucoup, et ça se poursuit avec son second album [Why You Wanna Leave, Runaway Queen?], fait de rock bien lourd, de rugissements et d’histoire de ruptures, de fuites et de départs.

Journal Métro

Douze nouvelles chansons country-folk-rock, titillant le garage, le cajun et le western au passage. C’est joué et chanté avec aplomb comme elle seule sait le faire. Lisa, nous t’attendions.

ICI Musique

This is a highly creative collection of songs without a trace of filler. Every song measures up to or exceeds the previous, giving the listener a record which not only immediately pulls them in, but also delivers a very artistic and unique sound which they will have trouble finding anywhere else.
