Émilie Landry is a bilingual singer-songwriter from Campbellton in northern New Brunswick. She is a country-folk artist who is inspired by American female country artists such as Dolly Parton, The Chicks, Taylor Swift and Kacey Musgraves, who for her are symbols of integrity, success and strength of character. In her lyrics, Émilie expresses herself with sincerity and lightness about the small pleasures and big upheavals of life. With the great mastery of her voice, this artist knows how to transmit emotions with accuracy and finesse.

In addition to having proven herself in competitions such as the Gala de la chanson de Caraquet, the Festival international de la chanson de Granby, Ma première place des arts, and Destination Chanson fleuve, she obtained her diploma of professional technique of music and song in pop and jazz singing in Quebec. In 2017, she entered the music industry professionally when she signed with her label and booking agency le Grenier Musique.

With her EP "Être social" (2017) and her album "Arroser les fleurs" (2020), she is regularly in the radio charts and reaches a growing audience that she develops with great attention via her newsletter and her private group "La loge d'Émilie" where she shares her news, backstage, private lives and beautiful surprises for the delight of her fans.

Always in search of artistic encounters, Émilie blossomed during the Global Music Match 2021 where she was able to put her talents as a songwriter to good use by collaborating with artists from all over the world and by resonating with the universes of the other participants.

Winner of the International Songwriters Day Song Contest with an unreleased song in English as well as being showcased at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, East Coast Music Awards and Folk Alliance International, Émilie Landry is more than ever the rising Acadian star to follow!

After a mini-tour in Europe (France-Switzerland) and in Louisiana, Émilie recorded her newest album where she delivers some raw fragments of her story. In this very personal opus, the artist reveals her daily life in the last few years, in her small hometown where she now lives. Halfway between nostalgia and wonder, Émilie describes with tenderness a life that is sometimes bustling, sometimes boring; both filled with beauty and harshness. This country/folk album reveals a maturity that can only be earned by the road traveled. A refined and down-to-earth sound that leaves room for truth and authenticity.
