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.

Laurence is "Bone," the other half of the Montreal electropop duo Milk & Bone, launched internationally with its critically acclaimed EP Little Mourning. (Like her bandmate, Camille Poliquin, Laurence also lends her sweet vocals to a side project, the duo Paloma). Trained in jazz, she soon gravitated to pop, her voice light and airy, her gaze direct, and her message "girl power." No surprise that she found the mirror she sought in the words of Montreal poet Daria Colonna, author of a collection of vindictive and vulnerable poetry, nominated for a 2018 Governor General’s award.
