The Blaze Velluto Collection

Blending English synth-pop and French songs, Paupière is a “neo-romantic” band. Now led by Julia Daigle (from the visual arts) and Pierre-Luc Bégin (Polipe, We Are Wolves), the glamorous and flamboyant Montreal duo, with a subterranean sensuality, crafts pop music that is both naïve and profound. While echoes of Human League, Deux and Depeche Mode can be heard, their intertwined voices sing of teenage romance and 80’s hedonism as much as contemporary disenchantment.

Naomi is a multidisciplinary artist with obvious charisma. She is now taking her first steps on the musical side of the stage. For the rest, her experience is counted in years. With a rich background in theatre and dance – she has been playing roles and acting on the small and big screen since the age of 14 -, Naomi has distinguished herself with performances in several major music videos (for artists like Rihanna, Marie-Mai, Coeur de Pirate) as a professional dancer and choreographer.

Blaze Velluto, an enigmatic character, gathered about 15 musicians – among them Guillaume Chiasson (Ponctuation, Bon Enfant, Jesuslesfilles) – and recorded Weatherman, a debut album of vintage pop combining glittering folk and wide-open spaces rock, which was independently released in spring 2017 and then re-released in February 2018. In early 2020, the follow-up arrived with We Are Sunshine – a rock n’ roll exaltation of colorful characters. Blaze Velluto, a pleasant man, and your new favorite musician.
