In the tradition of a French chanteuse (who also happens to sing in English, Portuguese, and Spanish), Florence K brings a soulful air to her recordings despite her relatively young age. Before going solo at age 17, she accompanied her mother (opera singer Natalie Choquette) on tour as a pianist, and later became the house pianist at Stash Café in her hometown of Montreal. Florence K's debut album, Live au Lion d'Or, was released on her own label, Red Blues. In 2008, she launched her third album, La historia de Lola, an ode to Cuban music that incorporates salsa, bossa nova, and flamenco. Havana Angels came out two years later, followed by I'm Leaving You in 2013. In 2015, the artist published Buena Vida, the story of hey journey through depression. A concert and a tour followed, with notably a stop at the Festival in 2016.
