Pascale Picard is one of the hottest discoveries of 2007. She is at the helm of the Pascale Picard Band, which includes guitarist Mathieu Cantin, bass player Phil Morissette, and drummer Marc Chartrain. Picard started her career in Quebec in the nineties. The young artist had an interest in folk, rock, and punk music and learned to play her guitar while listening to Weezer, Blink 182, and Sublime. At the beginning of the millennium Picard played in local club scenes in Quebec, where she sang hit songs by other artists. In 2004, she was encouraged by a friend to send a demo to MusiquePlus and was recruited for the show Les pourris... de talents! Shortly after her first appearance, she met her band members, with whom she did the singles Thinking Of It and A While. Picard and the band members got a great response from the public, therefore, Zone3 decided to launch a compilation of the show. Following this experience, Picard and the band increased their stage performances, working with Zone3 Musique on an album. In the spring of 2007, Picard pierced through the music industry with her first album Me Myself & Us. The album with its 12 tracks received critical praise and radio airtime which propelled the artist's career. The album had rich sounds and hit singles such as That Is the Matter, Let's Have a Drink and Annoying, which were at the top of the charts around the country. The album was distributed by Universal and sold thousands of copies. Picard and her musiciens went on tour across Canada. At the end of the summer, the singer-songwriter had surged her career and gave a remarkable show called Osheaga in Montreal. In September, Picard received a nomination for English Album of the Year at the ADISQ Gala. The artist then headed to Europe that fall to promote the album. On December 31, she performed in Quebec City for the 400th anniversary celebrations. Pascale Picard received a nomination in the category Artist of the Year at the Juno Awards at the beginning of 2008.
