Story

The band first made a small appearance during a tv show on MusiquePlus in Montreal. The station was then flooded with messages to praise the band, forcing them to be reinvited.[citation needed]

Me, Myself & Us, the band's first album, was released in April 2007. Seven months later the album was platinum in Canada with more than 100,000 sold copies. The album's first single, "Gate 22", stayed in the Top 50 Anglophone chart in Quebec for 12 weeks.

Pascale Picard, the songwriter, is at the center of the band. She is known for her rich voice and she is now considered one of the hottest discoveries in 2007 in Canada[neutrality is disputed]. She was nominated for the 2008 Juno Awards in the category Artist of the year.

In January 2008 the band made a good impression[neutrality is disputed] while playing at the Midem, in Cannes, in the hope of opening new horizons in Europe. The single "Gate 22" was released in France in March 2008 and the whole album followed in June.

On August 20, 2008, Pascale and her band, incidentally from Quebec, were asked by Paul McCartney's team to open for the latter's historic show on the Plains of Abraham as part of Quebec's 400th anniversary.

During their 2008 Canadian tour they were supported by The Wooden Sky on the Eastern leg of the tour.

The band's newest album A Letter To No One debuted at #4 on the Canadian Albums Chart.[1]
