In the summer of 1985, her family moved to the Montréal area where she continued to study both classical piano and musical theory, while adapting to big city life. A young Miss Ivy played piano in recitals and performed many duets accompanied with her sister on violin. In the early 1990’s, while in high school, she picked up the guitar and formed an all girls heavy-metal band called “Slightly Mad”. It was during this experience where Miss Ivy began doing lead vocals, composing the music and writing lyrics, that she realized her calling. They performed live throughout the province of Québec from 1994 to 1999.
She entered the University of Quebec in Montreal in 1999 after the band split up and completed a BA degree in literature. Her interest into Peirce’s, Bakhtine’s and Hjelmslev’s works convinced her to pursue her studies deeper to the MA degree. All the years into literature studies put her, as she says, into a “very prolific writing period”. She wrote texts of all kinds; fantastic, dark stories, poems and even critical essays. She combined these dark writings one day with her music and the result was truly unique! With her soothing low voice accompanied with minor chord sequences, she could now create a soundtrack for her ghostlike legends and take the listener on a journey through her surreal world. Miss Ivy has created a land filled with fantastic imagery such as vanishing paths in the forest, the calming darkness of the night or the mysterious force of the ocean.
In March 2006, Miss Ivy entered the recording studio of Daniel Mercure to record her debut album entitled “Your Evil Bride” (released in 2009).
