About Virginie B
Virginie B's irresistible quirkiness is matched only by her boundless creativity. The singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist offers a unique reappropriation of hyperpop by incorporating touches of nu-jazz, funk and R&B, complemented with a refined conceptual approach inherited from art pop. Accompanied by her talented collaborator and co-producer Louis Jeay-Beaulieu, she applies this distinctive and versatile combination of styles to the exploration of her psyche, femininity and relationship with technology and nature. The result is an outlet through which she expresses her desires and excesses without taking herself too seriously, reflecting her vulnerability and confidence. On stage, she exudes a mesmerizing charisma, enhanced by the undeniable chemistry she shares with Louis, who accompanies her on bass. In addition to her solo project, she brings her striking stage presence to the live shows of the many Montreal-based artists she collaborates with, such as Super Plage, Félix Dyotte and Marie-Gold.
