Alexandre Millaire

About the Artist:

I am a vocalist, songwriter, instrumentalist, composer and performer in a bilingual art-folk duo called Moonfruits. I play guitar, banjo, piano and some percussion.

We perform and tour original material. Our live show mixes French and English organically, playfully, intentionally. Our début full-length album 'Ste-Quequepart' (2017) saint-kehk-pahr or Saint Somewhere is an elaborate small town fiction that explores the faces of gentrification, isolation and community.

Our performance and festival highlights so far include the NAC Fourth Stage, Place des Arts, CityFolk, Festival of Small Halls Ontario, La Nuit sur l’Étang, Blue Skies Music Festival, FrancoFEST de Hamilton (with members of the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra), Festival du Voyageur, Quality Block Party, Victoria Bicycle Music Festival and the first simultaneous bilingual CBC/Radio-Canada broadcast.

Our 2019 touring plans see us expanding our circuit to include the northeastern US and some European countries (France, Belgium, Germany, and the Netherlands).
