Manitoba Music

French Press

Indie, Pop, Singer/songwriter

French Press is seriously twisted indie-pop gold. This female fronted trio is armed with striking vocals, catchy hooks, and a driving rhythm section. The band plays pop music with surf and grunge influences exploring themes of repression, rebellion, empowerment, and desire.  

French Press is the musical project of Winnipeg, Manitoba chanteuse Chantel Emond who completed her first demo recordings in early 2012. Currently gathering material for her debut album this talented singer-songwriter first began her career as a jazz musician in Toronto and later toured the country with Toronto-based orchestral alt-pop band The O’Darling to much buzz and critical acclaim. This songstress is no stranger to the stage having spent the bulk of 2010 overseas, singing in clubs in Thailand and Morocco.

In 2013, Emond was a Manitoba Arts Council Deep Bay Artist in Residence and French Press was named one of CBC Scene’s top 10 bands to watch for in 2013.

French Press’ digital E.P. “Back on the Mattress”, released in June 2013, is available for streaming and download at frenchpressmusic.com. Tracking for the debut record “Youthful Trouble” will begin in March 2014.
