An Acadian-Cree musician, producer, scholar, story-teller and spoken word performer whose philosophy is, "Don't worry too much about life - no one ever makes it out alive". Lourdes writes with a unique musicality and distinct voicing and dialect. She gravitates instinctively toward hyperbole and satire. She believes that, "All life is a story because all stories were life, once". Of her craft, she says, "Writing is like going down a river in a canoe with the whole world paddling along with you, never knowing exactly where you came from, exactly where you're going or exactly where you might end up".
