A singer/songwriter, film composer, and pianist based in Montreal, Canada, Patrick Watson makes explorative chamber pop with his band -- also called Patrick Watson -- often blending spare indie pop, synthesizer experiments, cinematic orchestral song, and a melancholy tone. The group's second album, 2006's Close to Paradise, won the Polaris Prize. After composing music for several short films, Watson made his feature-length debut with It's Not Me, I Swear! in 2008. Released in 2015, Love Songs for Robots became his band's fourth straight album to reach Canada's Top Ten, and he found success again in 2019 with the arrival of his sixth long-player, Wave. After Watson went viral with the decade-old single "Je Te Laisserai des Mots" to the tune of hundreds of millions of streams, he released 2022's Better in the Shade, which drew on literary inspirations.
