Jorane Pelletier (born October 12, 1975), known professionally as Jorane, is a French-Canadian singer/cellist, who is notable for her alternative music style on a typically classical instrument as well as her ability to sing while playing cello at the same time.
She has worked with Sarah McLachlan for her record Afterglow. In 2004, the press also reported that Jorane would appear on a Halloween special of the television series ZeD to perform a "witchy acid cello".
She has released eight full-length studio albums to date.
Jorane performed a completely improvised piece inspired by the images she was presented with on a large screen, in Montréal on July 7, 2007 as part of "Montréal Terre", a sister concert of the Live Earth concerts.
