Born French-Georgian, Van Hechter is a Montreal-based pop artist with an edge; he is funny, cutting, at times political, yet his tracks are catchy and always easy to dance to.
He grew up between Canada, France and the U.S.A., studied opera, literature and cinema in college, then dropped everything to become a punk singer, joining a locally successful band which he renamed Audiobing.
After disbandment, Van focused on writing and music production, but in 2017, he returned to his first love; singing, releasing ”Van Unlikely”, which reunited him with Montreal/Toronto/Miami crowds.
This year he is back, offering his strongest album to date; ”Love Elastic”, a hyper-uplifting collection of songs which all have to do with love in the 21st century.
His slogan goes like so ”Because true love isn’t possessive, it is flexible, it morphs through time and doesn’t break. It is elastic…”
