Un Blonde

Un Blonde is the solo project of Montreal-based musician, producer, and composer Jean-Sebastian Audet. Over the course of a steady stream of self-produced albums and EPs, he has laid down the framework for a constantly mutating series of musical environments, which forge brilliant connections between hints of contemporary R&B, cubist avant-funk, low-key soul, indie pop, and confessional songwriting. This heady mixture spilled over into 2016’s Good Will Come To You, a brilliant, 21-song widescreen presentation of Audet’s concepts, which landed him a spot on the Long List for that year’s Polaris Music Prize, and bolstered his growing reputation as one of the most original interesting and exciting new artists to emerge on the Canadian music scene. Of the material on that record, major music site The Fader opined that “Jean-Sebastian Audet’s layered vocal harmonies are transcendent … they seem to guide him from an apartment and into the streets of Montreal, where he finds his own rhythm in the music, as he has always done.”
