A Canadian Francophone artist whose specialty is a rather dark brand of moody pop, Anik Jean released her first album, Le Trashy Saloon, in 2005.
Bolstered by the success of her first single, "Je Suis Partie," her well-received full-length earned her a coveted support slot for the Rolling Stones when they made their way through Montreal in 2006. In 2008, Jean released her follow-up album, the Mark Plati-produced Le Ciel Saigne le Martyr. In addition to making waves with her singles and albums commercially, Anik Jean also received nominations for Best New Artist of the Year at the Juno Awards in 2005 and for a Much Music Video Award the following year. ~ Chris True, Rovi
