Michelle Grégoire’s music has been described as “ingenious,” “elegant,” “balanced” and “original with great depth and imagination.” A proud Métis artist raised in Manitoba, Grégoire has toured across Canada with her jazz quintet and her music is heard regularly on XM Radio and various jazz programs across North America.
