Lydia Képinski

From a young age, Lydia Képinski stood out from the crowd and channelled her expansive energy through music. 2016 marks the year of her breakthrough: after releasing an EP titled EP under the Chivi Chivi label. Big winner of the 2017 Francouvertes competition, she bore her soul through a debut album titled Premier juin. Her bittersweet songs showcase her intelligent, darkly brilliant pop and sometimes serve to exorcise painful life lessons. Premier juin became the hit of the hour, appearing on the prestigious Polaris long list, winning pop album of the year at the GAMIQ gala and receiving 8 nominations at ADISQ 2018. She toured this album at more than a hundred shows, notably at Festival d’été de Québec, Francos de Montréal, Pop Montréal, Printemps de Bourges and in many other places and events around Quebec and France. One year later, she offered a completely re-imagined version of Premier juin with the help of beatmakers like CRi, Robert Robert and Ryan Playgroung, giving birth to a kepi-mixtape dotted with house music, minimal and trance sounds, accompanied by a video mixtape. The Montrealer is hitting back with a highly anticipated second album to be released April 22, 2022: Depuis. Impossible to label, this LP echoes Lydia's unmistakable universe and embodies the breadth of her artistic research. It goes through the ages by identifying with the new generation, without breaking away from the previous ones. A musical gem. The doors to success are wide open for this delicate, yet confident new voice in the landscape of Quebec song. Surely people will figure out how to spell her name sometime soon.
