Folk/rock singer-songwriter Annette has the ability to slip through the keyhole of life to gather up, heart in hand, music and lyrics that touch the soul and jump start the heart. She’s been part of the music scene for over twenty-five years, having worked with groups Folle Avoine and Hart Rouge before embarking on a solo career. Singing in both French and English her songs have the ability to create a ‘comfortable connectedness’ and a ‘feel good atmosphere’. Her writing is positive, not in a ‘fleur blue everything is wonderful way’, but one based in a faith-infused reality and self-empowering optimism, weaving through life’s paradoxes with a mix of compassion, contemplative detachment and humor leaving one with a refreshing sense of hope and faith. She delivers a mix of contemporary folk, melodic pop and acoustic rock with a sweet and soulful voice.
She proves she is the quintessential Canadian artist; the bilingual, straight-shooting poet of a prairie girl who has seen the world but who revels in her prairie roots. She’s the hip, urban musician standing in a field of wheat singing about heartbreak and the thrill of new beginnings; about the refusal to compromise; about fury and forgiveness. Annette’s music is smooth and soulful with a hit of big sky country. It is the work of an artist whose mettle has been tested.
