English: Anique Granger has just released her third album, Aimer comme une émeute (To Love like a Riot). The Montreal-based Fransaskois artist has been performing for over 15 years across Canada and Europe, sharing songs and stories with honesty and humor. Her album Les outils qu’on a (The Tools we Have), was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award in 2012. Her new duo with Marco Gosselin delivers the raw material. It’s the intricacies of the album, translated into two guitars and fused by a common experience. Years of touring, trains and kitchen parties, voices melting in harmony and a passion for real music. It’s guitar-driven Francophone folk, roots meets “chanson française”.
