Teen Sleuth est un groupe de rock artistique originaire de Montréal. Tout a commencé avec un opéra rock multidisciplinaire: Teen Sleuth & the Freed Cyborg Choir, qui comprend des marionnettes, de la danse, des costumes et des projections vidéos, tous là pour illustrer la musique. Teen Sleuth a donné 6 représentation au festival Pop Montreal 2009, et fait 2 fois salle comble. Durant Pop, Teen Sleuth a été cité dans La Gazette, CBC Radio,Nightlife, La Presse et le Globe & Mail: “A multimedia, hipster pop- opera may not sound appetizing but it was hard not to be won over by Teen Sleuth and the Freed Cyborg Choir, which ran every evening in a small theatre upstairs on St-Laurent. Equal parts high-school glee club, Andrew Lloyd Webber, eco-feminist honours thesis and Godspeed You Black Emperor!, its projections, puppetry, dance, pageantry and song burst with youthful talent.” (Carl Wilson)

Teen Sleuth a fait ses débuts au Montréal Fringe Festival 2009, avec 6 performances très appréciées du public, et a gagné le Next Stage Award, destiné à une production ayant un potentiel exceptionnel. Teen Sleuth a également fait la une de The Hour, et reçu des critiques positives dans La Gazette, The Hour et Voir.

Le lancement du premier EP de Teen Sleuth a eu lieu lors du Montréal Fringe Festival 2010, devant quelques 500 personnes. Le spectacle était accompagné d’une nouvelle série de projections incluant des extraits live de leur opéra. Cela a donc ouvert deux possibilités de performances: 1: comme un groupe de musique, avec des projections en interaction avec la musique live; 2: comme un spectacle/opéra, avec des interventions théâtrales live, des projections et de la musique live. TeenSleuth se produira à la Musicgallery de Toronto en décembre.
