Marie-Ève Janvier is a Canadian singer from Quebec, born in 1984 in Roxton Pond, Estrie, Quebec.

Biography[edit]

After taking part in the musical comedy Notre-Dame-de-Paris created by Luc Plamondon and Richard Cocciante when she was just 14, she played in Les Dix commandements at age 16. She had a lead role in musical Don Juan against the male lead role played by Jean-François Breau.

In 2007, she released her first sole self-titled album Marie-Ève Janvier with Mercury (Universal) France. The album was very successful and reached the Top 5 in Quebec Albums Chart.

In 2008, she toured Quebec with Jean-François Breau, her boyfriend. In the summer of 2009, they recorded their first joint album entitled Donner pour donner, followed in 2011 with a second joint album La vie à deux. Their joint single "J'ai un problème", a cover of a 1973 Johnny Hallyday and Sylvie Vartan song, became a big hit for Marie-Ève Janvier and Jean-François Breau.[1]

They both took part in a revival of Don Juan in February 2012[2] where Janvier played the role of Maria against Breau in the role of Don Juan. This was followed by joint promotional tour called La vie à deux tour in Quebec in Spring 2012.
