« Je reste ac­croché »

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Stanstead

Stanstead’s own pro­ducer Mike Goudreau is now pro­mot­ing his 17th al­bum: “e reste ac­croché”, fea­tur­ing 12 new orig­i­nal songs, all in French ex­cept for one. This is Goudreau’s 2nd Blues al­bum fea­tur­ing all French vo­cal orig­i­nal songs. The 1st al­bum, “ous avions rende -vous”, re­leased in 2000 on the Mon­tréal based Bros La­bel, had a suc­cess­ful run with con­certs at Mon­tréal’s Fran­co­folies in 2001 and a live record­ing at la Mai­son de la Cul­ture de Fron­tenac, recorded by Ra­dioCanada’s Si­lence on jazz and broad­cast coast to coast

With “ e reste ac­croché”, you’ll dis­cover Mike’s usual trade­marked good-tim­ing mix of con­tem­po­rary Blues and tra­di­tional Blues with di­verse in­flu­ences: Chicago Blues, Swing, a , Rock, R B, Coun­try and even Reg­gae Mike Goudreau is ac­com­pa­nied by long time cronies and mu­si­cians Maxime St-Pierre (Michel Cus­son, ean- Pierre Fer­land, Alain Caron) on trum­pet and horn ar­range­ments, the bril­liant sax­o­phon­ist Dany Roy (Garou, Bet-E Steph, Su ie Ari­oli), ino Fabi (Garou, .-C. Lau on) on key­boards, and the rhythm sec­tion of ean-Fran ois Bé­gin on drums and per­cus­sions and onathan-Guil­laume Boudreau on bass.

Goudreau wrote all the songs on the al­bum with help from lyri­cists and col­lab­o­ra­tors Michel Au­bin, Lise Gau­dreau and the French­man ac­ques M ge. Di­verse song sub­jects ex­plore themes such as: re­la­tion­ships, love, breakups, par­ties, friends, so­ci­ety and lighter sto­ries with a com­i­cal edge. The al­ways in­stantly recogni able “Goudreau” sig­na­ture is in the mu­sic and grooves. A Blues al­bum that de­fies the con­ven­tion that Blues is solely sung in English. Fi­nally a Blues al­bum that all fran­co­phones can un­der­stand in the lan­guage of Moli re

Recorded and en­gi­neered by immy Lord at Stu­dio Plante erte in Sainte- ulie, Québec, and mas­tered by Steve Corao at Sage Au­dio in ashville, Ten­nessee, this record­ing can stand be­side the big Blues pro-

duc­tions from the USA. The proof is in the pud­ding since Mike Goudreau’s mu­sic pro­duc­tions have been heard on dozens of net­work TV shows and films from the United States in the past 7 years, such as: Dirty Sexy Money (ABC), Army Wives (Life­time), Kath & Kim (NBC), Ge­orge Lopez Show (TBS), Jus­ti­fied (FX), Scoundrels (ABC), Fri­day Night Lights (ABC), Let’s Make a Deal (CBS), Mem­phis Beat (TNT), Auc­tion Kings (Dis­cov­ery), Amer­i­can Pick­ers (Dis­cov­ery), Odd­i­ties (Dis­cov­ery), Hung (HBO), De­fi­ance (FX), The Fos­ters (ABC Fam­ily) and most re­cently the TV movie “North Pole” (Bravo/Hall­mark).

For the past 25 years, Goudreau con­tin­ues to ex­pand his hori­zons in the world of mu­sic not only in Québec and the United States, but also all over the world! We in­vite you to re­dis­cover this great Canadian tal­ent!

The al­bum will be lunched tonight in Hull at “Les Fran­cofêtes”. Closer to home, Mike will be at the Vieux Clocher in Ma­gog on March 20th.
