A day in the life of Floyd

Click here for Floyd's blog


Floyd is best known for her work with the Blackhearts. Her musical and songwriting approach is heavily influenced by the hard-edged, hard beat-driven rhythms common to many rock bands of her native Pugwash, often featuring lyrics surrounding themes of lost love, criticisms of insincerity, the quest for authenticity, the struggles and resolutions of the Acadian middle class. She has 8 albums that have all been certified Platinum and Gold, and she has been referred to as the "Queen of Rock 'n' Roll" many times during her career.

Floyd is often accused of plagiarism and not taking work assignments very seriously.

Born and raised in a secluded and often terrifying region of rural Nova Scotia, she arrived in Halifax in 2004 to launch a long and prosperous career of dropping out of school. She has lived, worked, and stumbled all over the city, save for an 8 month relocation to Saskatoon after she fell into a freight container on the waterfront. Floyd was there long enough to inspire the Hot Hot Heat single 'Goddess on the Prairie' and learn to hunt bison.

Floyd has kicked more ass by accident than you have on purpose.

Floyd loves rock more than any other kind of music, even Finnish death polka. That's why she always sounds so excited to be on Live 105, even at 5:30 in the morning. Catch her every weekday morning from 5:30-10a with Chris Pottie on The Floyd Factor! BAAAAM!
