Angie Arsenault – Montreal, Canada

Singer | Songwriter | Keyboards
Genre: Industrial, Pop, Alternative, Rock

Angie Arsenault is an Acadian francophone who grew up in rural Prince Edward Island, Canada and later moved to Montreal, Canada, armed with her first 4-song EP, “The First Set.”  Having come from a musical family, Angie advanced her knowledge of music while studying Classical music at the Moncton University in New Brunswick and spending her summer breaks singing, acting and dancing in a dinner theatre.  Today, with an EP and 3 albums under her belt, Angie continues her musical journey and shares her gift through private voice lessons at her home studio and a training support system via a website, complete with a blog and a singer’s forum designed to help her students practice at home .

It has always been very important for Angie to keep creative control over her music and image and stories have been an important part of her being.  Her first full-length debut album, “Once upon a dream”, represents a creative process that incorporates her dreams and are often the reason for the existence of her songs.  “I believe the creative process starts with the dreams more than the music,” Angie posits.  “There are always certain dreams or visions that stay with me, and even weeks or months later they’ll still be there like a cloud over my head, and music really helps me put that into perspective and bring it into a more real dimension.  My personal experience of my music is that it transports me, it allows me to feel certain things – it’s a very emotional music.  But for me when I say emotional, it’s not always sad and dark and depressing: there’s a light at the end of the tunnel and that’s why it’s a necessary emotional journey.”

In 2011, Angie produced and released her 2nd album, “Shadow Revelations“, a mix of dark, industrial, pop sounds with an emphasis on rhythms and electronic noise, along with her signature melodic vocal harmonies.

Finally, in September 2014, Angie and her family released “The Roots Project“, an Americana Folk album featuring her mother Louise, her sister Melissa, her brother Jonathan, and herself. This was a lifetime goal for this amazingly talented musical family and with the different musical styles and influences each brought to the project, the result is nothing short of spectacular.
