Coeur de Pirate

Coeur de Pirate is the stage name/alias for Béatrice Martin, a French Canadian indie-pop singer-songwriter.  Featuring the piano, Coeur de Pirate has a unique light pop sound that might bring a bit of Regina Spektor or Kate Nash to mind, and gives you just one more pleasant reason why you should brush up on your French skills.

Her deput album, Coeur de Pirate, was released on September 16, 2008 and went on to be nominated for the Francophone Album of the Year award at the 2009 Junos, and also enjoyed considerable success in France and Switzerland.  Her single, Comme des enfants, became the second ever French language song to top the CBC Radio 3’s R3-30 chart (weekly top 30 indie songs) in February of 2009.

I would encourage you to have a listen!
