Fille de parents ouvriers, Maude Audet nait et grandit en banlieue de Québec. Adolescente des années 90, elle s’imprègne de la culture grunge et alternative du moment, mais aussi de folk et de rock’n roll.

Autodidacte, elle se met à l’ouvrage et les chansons se créent naturellement. Sortie de nulle part aux yeux de certains, elle parvient à participer à plusieurs concours, apprends et se définie d’avantages. Elle rencontre Navet Confit, qui la parraine amicalement et à qui elle lègue la réalisation de ses premières ébauches.

L’été dernier, elle fait paraître « non-officiellement » une adaptation francophone de Smell like teen spirit, qu’on partage et aime beaucoup. Depuis, elle a créé les chansons de son prochain album qu’elle souhaite inscrire dans l’esthétique qu’elle s’est maintenant clairement approprié. Pour ceci, la réalisation est confiée à Ariane Moffatt, choisie pour ses multiples talents et sa grande sensibilité. La sortie est prévue pour l’automne 2017.

Catherine Leduc nous a prouvé, avec son premier album solo, « Rookie » (2014), qu’elle était bien plus que la simple moitié de Tricot machine. La voilà qui revient avec « Un bras de distance avec le soleil », un deuxième effort qui exulte la liberté créatrice.

Dans un genre manifestement libéré des carcans de la chanson, ce nouvel album prend la forme d’une épopée sonore qui, en plus de permettre d’échapper à l’attraction terrestre, confirme l’auteure-compositrice en tant que voix féminine singulière.

Catherine Leduc reprend la route du Québec pour présenter au public le fruit de son travail: un audacieux mélange de textures baroques, d’aventures mélodiques heureuses et de mots choisis qui la définissent de plus en plus.
===========
Maude Audet, the daughter of working-class parents, was born and raised in a Quebec City suburb. As a teenager in the 1990s, she immersed herself in grunge and the alternative culture of the day, but also listened to her fair share of folk and rock 'n' roll.

She is self-taught, and her songs seem to come naturally once she sets to work. While she may have seemed to be a bolt from the blue, she had in fact entered quite a few competitions where she learned a lot and developed her own style. She also met members of the band Navet Confit, who gave her a friendly boost and were consequently entrusted with performing her first songwriting efforts.

Last summer, her unofficial release of a French-language adaptation of Smells Like Teen Spirit proved to be very popular. After that she worked on the songs for her next album, which were in tune with the aesthetic she has now adopted. She entrusted production of the album to Ariane Moffatt, because of her many talents and her sensitivity. Its release is scheduled for the fall of 2017.

Catherine Leduc, who first became known as the female half of the band Tricot Machine, is back to work as a singer-songwriter. After her first atmospheric solo album in 2014, she is now back with a second offering scheduled for release in the spring of 2017.

Still accompanied by Matthieu Beaumont, her partner in music and life, they did all the arrangements and production work by themselves. They will be back on the road throughout Quebec to perform these new songs – a surprising mixture of dream pop and psychedelic folk – for their fans. These hypnotic songs still have a groove, and the new show is sure to be a delight.
