Geneviève Racette

Geneviève Racette

Geneviève grew up in a musical environment. Both her parents are passionate about music. Her mother is a classically trained pianist and her father is a music lover and self taught guitarist. Needles to say she learned to appreciate music at a very young age. She started singing at approximately 8 years old. Geneviève got her first guitar at 11 years old and hasn’t let go of it since.

Her journey led her to study vocal jazz performance at Cegep St –Laurent where she perfected her vocal skills for four years. In 2012, she studied songwriting at “L’école nationale de la chanson de Granby” (Granby’s National Songwriting School).

Geneviève’s first EP was released in May 2014 and for almost a year and a half, her songs “Bricolage” and “Multicolore” hit the top 10 on Sirius XM Francophone Radio.

Winter 2015, “Maison d’oiseaux” reached top 5 on the folk radio charts of ICI Musique – Radio Canada. In Spring 2015, Geneviève was nominated at the Sirius XM Indies Awards as “Emerging Artist of the Year (French)”.

In May 2016, Geneviève released her first full length album “Les aurores boréales” (Northern lights). Her first single “Noir et blanc” (Black and White) hit the charts on Sirius XM Francophone radio, and many other radios in Canada.

Geneviève has given multiple performances in various venues. She was the opening act for Damien Robitaille at the prestigious festival “Francofolies de Montréal” in summer 2015. In 2017, she will be touring Québec as the opening act for well-known singer-songwriter François Lachance. The rest is still to come…
