I'm a big fan of CBC Radio One, and a while back one of my favourite radio programs, Q, introduced me to french chanteuse Coeur de Pirate. When the host of Q, Jian Ghomeshi, had her back again last week, I decided to check out the rest of her album online and am so happy I did. Coeur de Pirate is Béatrice Martin, a 20 year old classically trained pianist from Montreal, Canada. Her voice is soft, sweet and little bit quirky – and who doesn't love listening to those french lyrics floating through the air?
Visit her MySpace page to sample her album for yourself.
