Cœur de pirate
_

Cœur de Pirate is the solo project of award-winning singer-songwriter and pianist Béatrice Martin.

Since the age of 3, Martin has been playing the piano and expressing herself through songs and music. After spending several years singing and playing keyboards in Montreal indie bands, Martin decided to go solo and released her eponymously titled debut album in September 2008, to immediate national and international acclaim. Her popularity on YouTube and MySpace helped her garner millions of new fans. Cœur de Pirate has now sold more than one million albums worldwide and counting. Martin toured the album extensively throughout Europe and North America, while building an impressive list of collaborations (Jay Malinowski, Kardinal Offishal, David Usher) and awards (Felix awards in 2009 and 2010, and the 2010 Victoire de la Musique Award for Original Song of the Year, Juno and Polaris Prize nominations, etc.). Martin then returned in November 2011 with her sophomore album, Blonde, which she co-produced with Montrealer Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, The Dears). Blonde found widespread success, leading to more sold-out tours across Europe, Canada and the United States, selling over 200 000 copies worldwide while Coeur de pirate reached Diamond certification in France. Martin took home 2 Felix awards at the 2012 ADISQ gala (Pop Album Of The Year and Female Singer Of The Year), while in 2013 she collaborated with the likes of Simple Plan and Lights. The following year, Martin provided the soundtrack to Radio-Canada’s hit medical series, Trauma, as well as the original score to Ubisoft’s video game, Child of Light.

Martin returns in 2015 with her third album, a collection of songs dating as far back as 2012, written mostly in Montreal. Where Blonde was inspired by 60’s yéyé, Francoise Hardy and Brigitte Bardot, that new album finds Martin boldly expanding her horizons and modernizing her approach. The intoxicating first single “Carry On” was recorded in Stockholm with producer Bjorn Yttling (Peter Bjorn and John, Robyn, Lykke Li), her beloved piano is now cradled within a swirling ensemble of synthesizers and carefully crafted string arrangements, with layers of dynamic drum sounds and samples powerfully propelling the song forward. "Carry On" signals the end of an era and ushers in another, where Martin reflects more deeply on her life up to that point.

Cœur de pirate / Cœur de pirate - ROSES
Store

For Roses, Cœur de pirate has partnered with three brilliant producers : Björn Yttling, Rob Ellis and Ash Workman. Béatrice Martin’s meticulously crafted melodies are as resplendent as ever and will enrapture longtime fans once again. The singer fiercely explores coming-of-age themes that are at times painful. The lyrics are the reflection of a young woman bravely facing her fears. The final result is at once catchy and daring, dark and light, exhilarating and moving, romantic and epic. The English and the French songs combine to form Cœur de pirate’s most accomplished album to date.

Cœur de pirate composed the original soundtrack for the videogame Child of Light, created by Ubisoft Montreal. 
To fit the mystical atmosphere of the game, Cœur de Pirate composed an intimate and nostalgic soundtrack that becomes magical with each of Aurora’s adventures. With the support of The Bratislava Symphony Orchestra, the Montreal-based artist was also able to recreate the epic and operatic ambiance of in-game fight sequences.

For the upcoming season of Trauma, Béatrice Martin, also known as Cœur de pirate, will be at the center of the show’s musical atmosphere. A new album, which can be pre-ordered now, will hit the stores on January 14, 2014 and a France release will follow on January 27. It will consist of 12 covers, all from anglophone hits.

As she had done with Ariane Moffatt, Pascale Picard, and Martha Wainwright in previous seasons, Fabienne Larouche collaborated with Cœur de pirate to create the musical atmosphere of the show’s fifth season, which will air on Radio-Canada in winter 2014. The resulting soundtrack is a multifaceted selection of covers from both the past (Kenny Rogers, The Rolling Stones, Nancy Sinatra) and the present (Amy Winehouse, The Libertines, Bon Iver), even featuring covers of Quebec hits (Patrick Watson, Les sœurs McGarrigle).

The soundtrack is scheduled to hit the stores on January 14, 2014, the day before the fifth season of Trauma will premiere on Radio-Canada.
