Ten years ago, Béatrice Martin became known to the world as Cœur de pirate. Over the past decade, she has sold over a million albums, in addition to reaching 1.3 million fans on Facebook and 100,000 followers on Twitter and Instagram. On streaming platforms, 3 million fans listen to her albums on repeat.
Released in September 2008, her self-titled debut went platinum in Canada and diamond in France. Blonde (2011), her more pop-oriented sophomore release, also went platinum in Canada and in France. The album earned Béatrice the Félix awards for Pop Album of the Year and for Female Performer of the Year in 2012. Roses (2015) reached gold status in Canada and in France, with over 200 000 copies sold. In 2016, Roses also earned Béatrice the Félix award for English-Language Album of the Year and a JUNO nomination for the Fan Choice Award.
When Coeur de pirate’s journey with Roses came to a close, a sense of creative urgency set in. As a result, En cas de tempête, ce Jardin sera fermé took form in only three months, just in time to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the artist’s career.
