来自加拿大魁北克的Trip-hop/流行电子乐队Men I Trust成立于2014年，由Dragos、Jessy、Odile和Emma四名成员组成。
2013年，继与Jessy的第一次合作之后，Dragos通过一位共同的朋友认识了Odile，她当时正在攻读古典声乐的学士学位。Odile澄澈而有力的声音打动了同为古典乐铁杆粉丝的Jessy和Dragos，她被邀请一同录制巴洛克风格歌曲《Introit》——这是他们对这种风格的首次尝试，尽管她当时完全搞不懂他们想做什么。她在录音现场即兴演唱了人声部分，而这首歌也成为了Men I Trust最优秀的作品之一。
在2014年发行了首张同名专辑《Men I Trust》之后，他们在魁北克当地迅速打开了知名度。他们歌曲在多个电台热播，也被各类网站介绍和报道，并在一些纸媒的排行榜上取得了不错的成绩。
Emma的加入，则是一场幸运的邂逅。2015年，一位他们共同的朋友将网上一段Emma的视频给Dragos看，视频中，她和朋友们在篝火旁抱着吉他随意地弹唱，她的声线和Odile恰恰相反——不那么澄澈，却带有一点粗糙的质感；脆弱之中，又带着一丝神秘的扭曲——这引起了乐队的注意。乐队找到她，并在Dragos的蒙特利尔小公寓里尝试一起录制了一首《Out in Myself》，结果发现他们的合作是如此轻松愉快，一拍即合。2015年初，乐队邀请她一起参与现场表演。在这次表演上，两位女声完美配合，相得益彰，乐队获得了大量积极的反馈。Emma自此成为了乐队的固定班底。
Men I Trust的第二张唱片《Headroom》于2015年发布，乐队也正式确定了四人编制。这一次，他们的音乐走出了魁北克，在Hype Machine上频频亮相，也被列入不少Spotify和SoundCloud的热门播放列表。2016年春，乐队发行了单曲《Humming Man》，并首次制作MV，成为了许多音乐博客上的热播歌曲。

Founded in 2014, Men I Trust is a trip-hop/pop-electronic music band originating from Quebec City, Canada.
Jessy and Dragos know each other since their fourth year of high school. Back then, Dragos had somewhat of a background in classical piano and Jessy mastered the dark and esoteric art of the metal guitar soloist.
In 2012, while finishing his master’s degree in audio postproduction at Laval University, Dragos spent most of his days and sleeping hours at the “LARC” studio working on his solo projects. He randomly met Jessy again, who was finishing his bachelor degree in jazz guitar, in one of the faculty’s hallways and talked about doing a French-touch/Italo-disco track together. Some weeks later, they did just that. And it worked out so well that they decided to extend their collaboration to a whole project where many singers would be involved.
In 2013, after his first collaboration with Jessy, Dragos was introduced to Odile by a mutual friend. Odile was then completing her bachelor degree as a classical singer. Her voice struck Jessy and Dragos, already both hardcore classical music fans, by its clarity and power. Odile had no clue what they were about to do, when she came at the studio to record the “Introit”, their first baroque essay. She came up with the melody of the voice on the spot and the song became one of Men I Trust’s highlights.
After the release of their first album “Men I Trust” (2014), the group had a rapid local success in Quebec and made it on several radio, web and paper charts.
Emma was a fortuitous encounter. In 2015 a mutual friend presented her to Dragos through a video posted over the internet. She was casually singing and playing the guitar around a campfire with some of her friends. Emma’s voice was on the opposite spectrum of that of Odile, being less clear, more grainy and fragile with a mysterious twist that caught their attention. They reached her and tried recording one song called “Out in Myself”, which turned to be one of the band’s easiest to record in Dragos’ s small Montreal apartment. The band then invited her to join them on live shows at the beginning of 2015. The girls’ voices blended wonderfully together and the band got lots of positive feedback from the experience. Emma has been part of band since then.
With their second album “Headroom” (2015), Men I Trust truly became a quartet. This time, the band’s music echoed outside of Quebec, with many appearances on Hype Machine and several others on popular Spotify and SoundCloud playlists. In the spring of 2016, the band released their single and first music video for “Humming man” which were featured on many online music blogs.
