"Bénédicte - Union"

We’ve been falling in love with the soulful, downtempo electro of Toronto’s Bénédicte for some time now, and her new single “Union” makes us fall even harder. The song is minimal, soft and serene; with twitchy drums, underwater synths and splashes of wistful vocals. It’s a nice addition to the Bénédicte canon, which is deservingly turning heads. Now, we just need all these beautiful songs on one stellar release, and of course we’ll be watching and waiting for that day. - Silent Shout

"Bénédicte - Union"

We usually ease you into Weird Tuesday with a song like this. Bénédicte’s music is easy on the ears. In fact, it could be folk if it wasn’t for the electronic instrumentation and the singer’s quirky style. It’s odd. It’s just easy-listening odd. - Ride The Tempo - Mark Anthony Brennan

"Bénédicte - Dido"

We fell for Bénédicte‘s minimal synths back in September, and the Toronto-based artist is proving to be a master at paring songs down to their simplest, most haunting forms. “Dido” falls back on a groups of four notes that climb behind echo-y lyrics sung with a tone of regret. Aching for more? She’s been posting new singles on her Soundcloud at a rate of about one every month. - Silent Shout


Still working on that hot first release.



Bénédicte is the one woman electronic project of Torontonian, Maxime Gordon. She has been building buzz in her home town of Toronto and her university town, Cambridge, ever since her first released single last summer on soundcloud. Since that summer day she has been featured in blogs, zines, been played on the radio and has started playing live shows. Known for her lush minimal electro Bénédicte is aiming to challenge your preconceptions of a woman singer. 

Bénédicte was born when Maxime dropped out of school, got fired from her job and moved back in with her parents. Presented with more free time and a more stable living arrangement she sheltered herself away from society with her laptop. What sprung from that place of sadness is the lush world of Bénédicte. And while the sadness is an underlying theme in her music, what comes forth is her refusal to be pushed away and ignored.
