Coeur de Pirate

Coeur de Pirate is a Canadian singer-songwriter and pianist. A francophone from Montreal, she sings mostly in French and has been credited in Montreal Mirror with “bringing la chanson française to a whole new generation of Quebec youth”.
She initially called herself Her Pirate Heart, but translated the name to French when she stopped writing songs in English. She released her debut album Cœur de pirate on September 16, 2008.
In February 2009, Martin attracted wider media attention when a photographer from Quebec City, Francis Vachon, used the song “Ensemble” as the soundtrack to a viral video on YouTube entitled “Time lapse of a baby playing with his toys”, leading to coverage on Good Morning America, Perez Hilton’s website, The Globe and Mail, and elsewhere.
In June 2009, she made a special appearance on CBC Radio’s Q radio show. She performed her single “Ensemble” and a new song, “Place de la République”.
Her second album, Blonde, was released on November 7, 2011, in both digital and hard copy versions.

In 2013 she recorded music for the fifth season of the Canadian drama series Trauma, with a soundtrack album released on January 14, 2014.
In 2014 she composed the soundtrack for the Ubisoft Montreal’s video game production Child of Light. The soundtrack includes a song, “Off to Sleep”, sung in English.
In April 2015, she released the single “Carry On” in both English and French. Both versions of the song appeared on her album, titled Roses.
In 2018, she released the album En cas de tempête, ce jardin sera fermé, her fourth album which also marks the tenth anniversary of her career.
In December 2018, Martin announced that she does not plan to release any further albums under the name Cœur de pirate, although she plans to continue making music.
