France's Christine and the Queens is the electronic pop solo project of singer, songwriter, and dancer Héloïse Létissier. Born in Nantes, France in 1988, Létissier studied theater at École Normale Supérieure de Lyon (ENS Lyon) before embarking on a music career. Inspired by the drag queens who would dance with her while she performed, Héloïse eventually adopted the Christine and the Queens moniker. Influenced by the theatrical pop of David Bowie and Laurie Anderson as well as the dance choreography of Michael Jackson, Létissier often combines her poignant, atmospheric music with computer-based multimedia presentations that blur the lines between theater, singing, and dance. She released her debut independent EP, Miséricorde, in 2011, followed by Mac Abbey and Nuit 17 à 52 in 2012 and 2013, respectively. In 2015, Létissier delivered Christine and the Queens' debut full-length album, Christine and the Queens, featuring the single "Saint Claude." Her song "iT" has been featured on the HBO series, Girls.
