A truly genuine performer, always “one” with her music; compelling the listener to engage with her, be pulled into the moment & feeling the spirit & soul of her lyrics.
Connie Saulnier’s songs speak from somewhere deep within, blending diverse musical influences of rock, folk, R&B, classical & jazz. As an Indie musician, she is unafraid of following her music, taking her audience…and herself on an incredible journey.
As a Singer-Songwriter, Connie has thrilled audiences in Canada nationwide, carving “her place” into each province’s music scene. She has shared the stage with Michelle Wright, Quartette, Melanie Doane, Lee Aaron, Coco Love Alcorn, Irish Mythen, Ryan Cook & Dwight d'Eon to name a few.
Performances and interviews on local TV, numerous nightspots including Vancouver’s musical launch pad ‘the Railway Club’, 2011 ECMA's in Charlottetown, Harmony Bazaar, Coal Shed Festival & Music Nova Scotia.
Her latest 3-song EP is compelling, blending her roots in folk with a soulful edge & a bit of rock to give a unique Indie sound. Now That You’re Here, Solid Ground &
I Will Be Denied will uplift, intrigue & get your toes-a-tapping!
Born & raised in a small fishing community near Yarmouth NS, Connie has filled her life with a love for music. The sounds of an Acadian heritage; choirs, musical gatherings, celebrations & the ‘rock & roll’ sounds of the surf have fueled & fed her. From her first guitar (purchased with money raised from rolling coin for her school cafeteria; still used to write most her music on), to picking up unique instruments & musical teachings from travels around the globe you will hear in her music an explosion of passion, heart, soul & honesty. An Acadian soul, a worldly spirit.
