Lisa LeBlanc is awarded a Platinum disc

Lisa LeBlanc is awarded a Platinum disc

Earlier this week, Lisa LeBlanc was awarded a Platinum disc for selling 80 000 copies of her debut album, released in March 2012 via Bonsound. Strong from the huge success gained over the last year with her 2012 award in the Breakthrough Artist of the Year category at l'ADISQ 2012, she was nominated once again this year at l'ADISQ for Female Artist of the Year. Her irresistible talent has been making waves all over, even charming the French. With over 300 shows under her belt and her album released in France, Switzerland and Belgium via Tôt ou Tard last March, Lisa just returned from the old continent, where she gave a series of concerts, including a date at La Cigale, in Paris.

Congratulations to Lisa!

The Ballad of Boogie Christ: Act 2 out now!

The Ballad of Boogie Christ: Act 2 out now!

Joseph Arthur continues his banner Ballad of Boogie Christ year by releasing its follow up album, The Ballad of Boogie Christ: Act 2, out now in Canada via Bonsound. This epic project is a joy to discover, according to Huffington Post Québec.

Buy the album on iTunes (only available in digital format in Canada).

This album is loosely based around a character that’s either enlightened or insane, like all of us, Joseph tells American Songwriter. It’s a sonic landscape across the last few years of my life excavating material for my captors,
though they were illusions, every last one of them. Recorded at a range of studios in New York, California and Minnesota, the 12 songs here extend the themes and vivid narratives introduced on Act 1 of Boogie Christ, named for a fictional character Arthur based loosely on his own life. Among the contributors are the Band's legendary pianist Garth Hudson, bassist Catherine Popper and multi-instrumentalist Kraig Jarret Johnson.

Says Arthur of part 2, I feel like it definitely tells a story. It sounds ridiculous to quote your mom, but she equated this album to the end of a novel. She's a tough critic, so I took her opinion as a really good sign.

Montréal $ud by Dead Obies out now!

Montréal $ud by Dead Obies out now!

Montréal $ud, the ambitious first album from the montréalais-by-rive-sud collective Dead Obies, is available now digitally via Bonsound (a vinyl album will be available at a later date). The tracks chronicle the proverbial stations of the cross by six young Jesus figures (MCs Snail Kid, 20some, Yes Mccan, O.G. BEAR, RCA, and producer VNCE) as they travel from the suburbs (Montréal-Sud, Longueuil's original name) to the big city. Each of the 17 songs is packed with locational and generational aspirations and anxieties. Buy the album on their website or on iTunes.

Don't miss the free album launch show in Montreal, at Cabaret du Mile-End, on November 13th, presented in collaboration with Coup de coeur francophone!
