Season 3 - Ep. 14 - Discussing a Surge In Canadian Punk Rock in 2022 with Punk Roquette
I am going to be speaking with the Quebecois punk rock personality Émilie Plamondon also known as Punk Roquette today about the recent surge in Canadian punk music and how she has become a bit of a punk celebrity and featured singer on some of the recent releases that have come out over the past few years.
She also plays in not one but TWO bands, and still has a full time job. I’m thinking her love of coffee is the only thing that allows her to make it through a day with all the things she is able to accomplish.
We’ll dig into the mind of Punk Roquette right after this.
