About the artist

Multidisciplinarity is an integral part of Annie-Claude Deschênes’ creative process, who continues her perpetual personal quest of uniting music and performance art by bending the pre-established conventions of stage presence. A key figure on the Montreal independent music scene for almost twenty years, she made her mark as a singer, musician, songwriter, performer and visual artist with Duchess Says and PyPy, two bands that are renowned as much for their electrifying performances as for their artistic sensibility. Her exploratory approach to staging and sound design takes a new direction with the genesis of this solo project: the urgency that characterizes her work remains, but frustration and aggression give way to introspection and vulnerability. Annie-Claude Deschênes explores and reinvents herself under her own name, driven by a constant need to create outside her comfort zone.

Inspired by minimal pop and the pioneers of electronic music, Les manières de table, her first solo album due out in spring 2024, is as danceable and melodic as it is disquieting and dystopian, proposing to set the table differently by deconstructing the social codes of politeness imposed on us.

About Lola 1:2

Lola 1:2 is the moniker of Montreal singer, music maker and shapeshifter Audrey Ann Boucher. Formerly a member of the art pop duo She-Devils, Audrey now projects herself into the persona of Lola: a visionary master of disguise, transformation and essential magic. Merging primordial songwriting sensibilities with modern electronic beat making, Lola 1:2 crafts romantic, timeless melodies that soar above textured soundscapes. Entrancing listeners into a fantasy, her music acts as a gateway to a mesmerizing world where boundaries blur, and imagination reigns.
