Miss Ivy Françoise Dominique Arsenault was born August 1976 in Maria in the Gaspésie region of eastern Québec, Canada. She grew up by the sea in a coastal village, Paspébiac, with her younger sister and parents. Her passion for singing and playing music was evident early in her life when she began classical piano lessons at age 5 and sang in the local church choir. Still today, her childhood memories transcend through her song writing. The ocean and the east wind evoke the words from within her soul.
