An Evening With Cœur de Pirate
- This event has passed.
Cœur de Pirate is the solo project of award-winning singer-songwriter and pianist Béatrice Martin.
Since the age of 3, Martin has been playing the piano and expressing herself through songs and music. After spending several years singing and playing keyboards in Montreal indie bands, Martin decided to go solo and released her eponymously titled debut album in September 2008, to immediate national and international acclaim. Her popularity on YouTube and MySpace helped her garner millions of new fans. Cœur de Pirate has now sold more than one million albums worldwide and counting. Martin toured the album extensively throughout
Martin returned in November 2011 with her sophomore album, Blonde, which she co-produced with Montrealer Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, The Dears). Blonde found widespread success, leading to more sold-out tours across Europe, Canada and the United States, selling over 200,000 copies worldwide.
Martin returns in 2015 with her third album, a collection of songs dating as far back as 2012, written mostly in Montreal. Where Blonde was inspired by 60’s yéyé, Francoise Hardy and Brigitte Bardot, the new album finds Martin boldly expanding her horizons and modernizing her approach. Her beloved piano is now cradled within a swirling ensemble of synthesizers and carefully crafted string arrangements, with layers of dynamic drum sound and samples powerfully propelling the song forward. “Carry On” signals the end of an era and ushers in another, where Martin reflects more deeply on her life up to that point.
