Scott-Pien Picard is an Innu singer-songwriter from the community of Uashat Mak Maliotenam on the North Shore. He composes in Innu, his mother tongue, a rich and colourful language. Inspired by the bands Maten and Kashtin when he was young, he became passionate about music and began to strum the guitar. He participated in the television show Le Rythme 3 in Montreal in 2015, directed by Samian, and has been taking part for the past few years in Nikamun Mamuitun (Chansons rassembleuses), a large-scale show uniting both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
Scott-Pien Picard has been active on the Aboriginal music scene since then and performs in several communities in Quebec. Recently crowned Quebec’s Talent Bleu by the public on the program La Semaine des 4 Julie, the Innu artist will release his second album in March 2022. Scott-Pien Picard presents a lively folk show and invites you to discover the richness of the Innu culture.
