Andie Duquette is a Canadian country rock singer from Montreal, Quebec, signed to TAB Records INC. She’s been known to favor a dab of “edge” in her personal brand of country music, whether we talk about her strong and direct “women first” lyrics to some of her more robust songs on her debut Country album HERE WE ARE, due out October 6th. You’ll find Andie to be somewhere between Shania Twain and Miranda Lambert but there’s no mistaking it: this country girl is definitely rock’n roll and she wouldn’t have it any other way.
Andie’s career started at the very young age of three. Her parents were quite astonished when, at age five, Sesame Street hired Andie to sing their full repertoire for the French adaptation of this iconic TV show for Quebec audiences. Andie continued to sing and perform at a high level as a child for years and was given a number of roles on TV commercials and TV series. Andie subsequently went on to study vocal training with some of the best in Montreal in order to really master her abilities as a singer and she immersed herself for a few years in strict technique. Growing up in the city she was initially a big fan of Classic Rock and strong female artists like Heart, Pat Benatar, Joan Jett but was immediately taken when she first heard Shania Twain's voice one day on the radio - and that was all it took! Now, Andie is looking up to her peers who have dominated the Country Music Charts and are opening the door for girls like her.
Notwithstanding her young age, Andie has already toured extensively across the world including Canada, Europe, the US, Mexico, China and the Dominican Republic. She has just returned from a 40 day tour in Switzerland in order to continue building up her level of experience so that she can always perform at her highest level, something Andie is already quite spectacular at - just ask any fans that have been to her concerts.
In 2013 Andie was a contestant of the hit TV show “La Voix”, Quebec’s version of “The Voice”, where she was a strong semi -finalist. It was this experience which catapulted her to the next level of her career when Canadian Producer Tino Izzo (Celine Dion, Bobby Bazini, The Wilkinson’s, Roch Voisine, Garou, Jacynthe, Yuna Ito, Saya…to name a few) first saw her and asked to work with her. Tino and Andie started working together in 2014, putting in countless hours since and working hard to develop something distinct, something totally Canadian, and something they feel absolutely committed to. Andie, in the meantime, released her 1st solo French album in her native Quebec in 2015 where she was extremely well received. She earned three monster Top Ten BDS singles with one topping at #1 BDS on mainstream radio for many weeks which was followed with an extensive tour in 2016. And now, Andie is ready to go up the Country Charts with her second single 'Nothin' On Me'.
