Les Soeurs Boulay (The Boulay Sisters) are a Canadian folk music group from Quebec, consisting of sisters Stéphanie and Mélanie Boulay.[1] Originally from the Gaspésie, they are currently based in Montreal.[1]

History

The Boulay sisters released their full-length debut album, Le poids des confettis, on Grosse Boîte in early 2013.[1] Their song "Mappemonde" was a shortlisted nominee for the 2013 SOCAN Songwriting Prize, and the album was a longlisted nominee for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize.[2] That year the pair were nominated for GAMIQ awards in seven categories.[3]

The duo toured around Quebec in support of their album, singing and playing guitar and ukulele.[4]

They released the follow-up 4488 de l'amour in October 2015. The title track received airplay on east coast radio stations.[5] They continued touring, but in larger venues as their fan base grew.[6]

In late 2017 the sisters took a break from touring because of Mélanie's pregnancy.[7]
