Kristine St-Pierre: https://kristinestpierre.com/
Chansonnière with a travelling heart. A fitting description for this world traveler whose bilingual songs take you on a journey of self-discovery and emotional connection.
“There’s a real sense of connection to places in my songs and how these places and the people I met have inspired me in some way.”
“From her light, delicate finger picking to the stomp of her feet, you can hear Kristine St-Pierre’s soul baring itself to the audience with every melody.”
– Kimberly Lochhead, Ottawa Life Magazine, June 9, 2014
“Kristine St-Pierre delivers soul-searching songs in both languages.”
– Lynn Saxberg, Ottawa Citizen (2012)

After completing a degree in classical voice in June 2016, she discovered songwriting as a more personal means of self-expression through music. Her sources of inspiration include Joni Mitchell, Janis Joplin, Brandi Carlile, and the Staves.
