Add to Calendar 27-01-2012 27-01-2012 15 Coeur de Pirate, Leif Vollebekk Coeur de Pirate is the solo project of award-winning singer, songwriter, and pianist B�atrice Martin. After a brief stint as keyboardist with the now-defunct December Strikes First, Martin briefly joined the Montreal-based indie pop band Bonjour Brumaire as a vocalist and pianist. She left in 2008 to record and release her debut album Coeur de Pirate. The album won national and international acclaim, propelled by an unexpected gift courtesy of YouTube. Francis Vachon, a photographer from Quebec City, used the album cut "Ensemble" as the soundtrack to a time-lapse video of his nine-month-old son. This immensely popular clip showcased her music to millions of new fans, earning her praise from Good Morning America, The Globe and Mail, and Perez Hilton, among many others. The album has since sold over 600,000 copies worldwide. North American and European tours followed, gaining her legions of fans in France and Germany. Martin then went into the studio to record a duet with Julien Dor� and collaborated on the Coca-Cola theme song for the Vancouver Olympics, "Open Happiness," with Jay Malinowski and Kardinal Official. She also recorded a duet with David Usher ("Everyday Things"). Two Felix Awards followed in 2009 and 2010, and she won a 2010 Victoire de la Musique Award for Original Song of the Year. Coeur de Pirate has also been nominated for a Juno and long-listed for the Polaris Prize. Now, after several additional high-profile collaborations and a prominent voiceover spot as the voice of a Smurfette in the major motion picture The Smurfs, Coeur de Pirate recently released her highly anticipated sophomore effort, Blonde (2011). The first single "Adieu" is a sophisticated pop mini-masterpiece. Featuring rolling waves of bass and drums supported by Martin's pixie-dusted vocals, the track is a bouncing melody of keyboards, guitar, and handclaps, kissed with a hint of menace. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=101766 Highline Ballroom true DD/MM/YYYY
