“Five Minutes With” singer-songwriter Anémone Cantin

Anémone Cantin, known only as Anémone, is a 22 years old singer-songwriter from Montreal. She’s been writing songs for pretty much all of her life, and her first single ‘Scars’ was released in May 2021. Having studied jazz guitar in Cegep and being a singer since she was nine, Anémone plays the electric guitar and sings her original songs that are a mix of pop, soul and R&B. Inspired by Charlotte Cardin, Taylor Swift and many others, she released three singles last year and has lots of songs that are waiting to be released! Her goal as an artist is to defy social standards; she’s a woman who plays electric guitar and writes all of her songs, lyrics and music included. Her goal is to eventually be able to inspire women to do the same!
