QW4RTZ has its roots in the boys choir Les Petits Chanteurs de Trois-Rivières. What was once a favourite schoolyard activity quickly became a teenager’s creative outlet and, a few years later, a true artistic project. Since its offi cial debut in 2010, the band has performed hundreds of times in Canada, from Vancouver to Moncton, and the fi ve corners of Quebec (well, four of them, Ivujivik, we’re waiting for your call!) Several TV appearances, festival shows in front of crowds of tens of thousands, and a few European concerts later, QW4RTZ is fi nally releasing its fi rst album!
Classically trained musicians (yes, they jointly have close to 70 years of musical training!), the four members of QW4RTZ take a mischievous delight in finding inspiration in every possible style for their shows’ repertoire. The album is no exception to the rule; pop, indie, rap, electro, french chanson… nothing is off-limits!
