Biography

KROY is the stage name of singer, songwriter and composer Camille Poliquin. Described as a visionary artist, her soaring voice and bold pop explorations have seen her accumulate over 55 million streams on Spotify.

In the fall of 2016, KROY released her debut solo album SCAVENGER whose hypnotic electro rhythms and brooding lyrics have garnered praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, Nylon, FADER, Complex, Noisey and more. The album’s success has allowed KROY to perform throughout Canada and abroad, including New York, Paris, Le Printemps de Bourges, Austin (SXSW), Hamburg (The Reeperbahn) and Montreal (Osheaga). In 2020, KROY collaborated with prolific Belgium-born producer Apashe on the single Rain. The musician is also part of the minimalist electro-pop duo Milk & Bone with Laurence Lafond-Beaune, and together they spawned two critically acclaimed albums and one EP. Throughout her career, Camille has won a Juno Award (2019), a Félix Award (2019), and has been twice longlisted for the Polaris Prize (2015 and 2018).

On top of the success of KROY and Milk & Bone, the musician has crafted music for two Cirque du Soleil shows and several feature films with Laurence Lafond-Beaune, which earned the pair a nomination at the 2017 Canadian Screen Awards. Camille has also written the original music for the 2019 documentary Sisterhood, and KROY songs have been selected to create the right feeling in key scenes of multiple major international TV shows.

After a long wait and relentless requests from her fans, KROY launches «CHEVY 85», «MOONSTONE» et «OPINEL», three singles featuring dark pop melodies that sometimes veer towards country goth inspired by love, death, robots, space and the deep ocean.

KROY is the stage name of singer, songwriter and composer Camille Poliquin. Her deeply personal approach to music and her bold pop explorations have seen her accumulate over 55 million streams on Spotify. KROY has been described as a visionary artist and Montreal’s queen of electropop, and is known for her soaring voice, synth-pop melodies and brooding lyrics.

Camille Poliquin released her first songs under the alias KROY in 2014 and was quickly dubbed the next Montreal indie pop sensation. A year later, she began to create music with Laurence Lafond-Beaune, forming the minimalist electro-pop duo Milk & Bone, and together they spawned two critically acclaimed albums and one EP: Little Mourning (2015), Deception Bay (2018) and DIVE (2019).

In the fall of 2016, KROY released her debut solo album SCAVENGER. With hypnotic electro rhythms and lyrics dominated by stories of impossible love, the album draws inspiration from spacey trip-hop (Goldfrapp, Portishead) and inventive modern pop (Vampire Weekend, Youth Lagoon). SCAVENGER’s whirlwind of synths has garnered praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, Nylon, FADER, Complex, Noisey and more. Reflecting KROY's polished black-and-white imagery, the cover won a prize at the 2017 Grafika Awards. The album’s success has also allowed KROY to perform throughout Canada and abroad, including New York and Paris, Le Printemps de Bourges, Austin (SXSW), Hamburg (The Reeperbahn) and Montreal (Osheaga). In 2020, the musician collaborated with prolific Belgium-born producer Apashe on the single Rain.

To express her forward and varied interests, Camille likes to say that, much like Seinfeld’s George Costanza, she could’ve become a marine biologist or an architect had she not turned her attention to music. On top of the success of KROY and Milk & Bone, the musician, who completed studies in orchestra composition, has crafted music for two Cirque du Soleil shows and several feature films with Laurence Lafond-Beaune, including the theme song for King Dave for which the pair earned a nomination at the 2017 Canadian Screen Awards. Camille has also written the original music for the 2019 documentary Sisterhood, and KROY songs have been selected to create the right feeling in key scenes of multiple major international TV shows. Throughout her career, Camille has won a Juno Award (2019), a Félix Award (2019), and has been twice longlisted for the Polaris Prize (2015 and 2018).

After a long wait and relentless requests from her fans, KROY launches «CHEVY 85», «MOONSTONE» et «OPINEL», three singles featuring dark pop melodies that sometimes veer towards country goth inspired by love, death, robots, space and the deep ocean.
