Poetry and Tea

In this unique video series produced and created by PHI, artists freely explore the interplay between rhymes and sounds, sharing a quiet moment of introspection with us.

Synth sounds have never been so infused with sweet humanity as when they accompany the light, soaring voice of Camille Poliquin, the split personality of Montreal electropop. With Laurence Lafond-Beaulne, her bandmate in rising duo Milk & Bone, Camille, who once sang and performed for Cirque de soleil, evokes the lost paradise of romantic love. But, in her solo career under the stage name Kroy, she creates darker, more tormented music. Camille tells us that, without knowing too much about the author, she chose this poem by Montrealer Jay Winston Ritchie because she can identify with these wacky and amusing snapshots, without pathos, of life in the metropolis.

“I bought a Snickers bar, because I have to kill myself somehow”

Jay Winston Ritchie
