Christine and the Queens is Nantes-born Héloïse Letissier. She wrote, composed, arranged and produced 100% of her debut Christine And The Queens LP, released by Neon Gold / Atlantic Records last year. The standout tracks include her international breakout single “Tilted”, which will go for alternative radio adds in America, and is already a #1 hit in France and currently Top 40 in the UK – and “iT”, featured in HBO’s Girls, plus heart-wrenching Perfume Genius duet “Jonathan”.
In a very short time, Christine and the Queens has become known for her incredibly moving and energetic performances, featuring a full live band and four dancers in a spectacle that is uniquely her own in the current music landscape. Having supported the likes of Grimes and Marina & The Diamonds in the states, this fall will mark her debut North-American headline tour. Overseas live performances at Glastonbury and on the Jools Holland and Graham Norton shows have catapulted her album into the Top 10 of the official UK album chart for three weeks straight now, earning a silver status in the UK and selling out a headline tour, including 2 shows at London’s 02 Academy Brixton in 10 minutes. The album is now 7x platinum in her native France.
