A true creative chameleon, Marie-Clo is a born performer who ropes her audiences into a feverish pitch in both French and English. Singer-songwriter and dancer, her eclectic indie pop tackles current themes & conscious lyrics, but also conjures a colourful and enchanted world.

 

Marie-Clo is currently releasing a stretch of EPs leading up to her debut full length, Shell(e). A conceptual feminist narrative, it is slated to be fully released in 2021, produced by Polaris shortlisted drummer/ producer Olivier Fairfield (Fet Nat, Timber Timbre, Leif Vollebek), with the support of the Ontario Arts Council, the Canada Council for the Arts, and FACTOR.

Marie-Clo’s new single “Trophy Wife” was originally written as a ballad and went through numerous shifts before it’s raw, bold, and uptempo final version that was produced by Olivier Fairfield (Leif Vollebek, Andy Shauf, Timber Timbre). The song speaks of Marie-Clo’s voiceless, nameless time as a hockey wife. As a feminist, she witnessed and lived first hand objectification, double standards, emotional abuse & unsettling normalcy around sexist behaviors within the industry her partner thrived in. Unfaithfulness was simply the unoriginal cherry on top of a patriarchal sundae.
