Biography

Anique GRANGER serves her unique folk made of finger-picking guitar, seasoned with live sampling. Of course, the Saskatchewan Prairies creator sings about friendship & love, yet she also delivers urban tales, still praising simplicity and authenticity -- at once candid and profoundly human. And always, she offers real guitar playing.
In 2008, Anique launched Pépins, her first solo album recorded with accomplice, multi-instrumentalist Shawn Sasyniuk. Previously, in 2006, Anique produced 2 EP – one in French and one in English, both bearing her original material. Anique also co-founded Polly-Esther, a duo she lead from 1995, with whom she released 3 CDs.
Since 2005, Anique leads solo, but from the very beginning, busking in the streets of Saskatoon to Geneva's Voix de Fête Festival, from small or larger stages in Europe and from Montreal to Vancouver, Anique never ceased to leave her mark in the heart of audiences.
