Diane Dufresne

Inducted in 2023

Diane Dufresne’s colourful history as a French Canadian singer began more than six decades ago and she will become the first inductee who performs entirely in French. Born-and-raised in Montreal, the singer, songwriter, painter and stage performer left for Paris in the early 1960’s, where she studied singing and drama at the young age of 18. Returning back to Canada, Dufresne continued to break through creative boundaries, from performing in cabarets to singing for jingles and multiple film scores.
