“As modern as the day after tomorrow, as primitive as prehistory, both at once and very
beautiful.” – Dusted Magazine
Ottawa-born, Myriam Gendron spent much of her youth in transition, her father being a foreign correspondent. She spent spells in Gatineau (Quebec), D.C., Paris, and Montreal, where she finally settled at age sixteen. Still in Montreal, she makes her living now as a copy-editor and book dealer, leading to her discovery of an anthology of Dorothy Parker poetry, titled Not So Deep as a Well. Parker’s poems hit just the right note and Myriam began putting them to music. Recorded and mixed in her bedroom, Myriam Gendron’s debut album started as a simple project but became more serious as she began to absorb Parker’s work. The album, also titled Not So Deep as a Well (2014), is one of love and hate, all at once brutal, mischievous, humorous and blue. She returned with Ma délire – Songs of love,lost & found (2021), a very modern exploration of North American folk tales and traditional melodies.
