Holly, from our technical team went to see 2 shows in a row. Here is her review.</span></span></span></p> <div class="row-wrapper wysiwyg"> <div class="row"> <div class="col"> <p><span class="tinytext"><em>As a music enthusiast with a background as a vocalist for various chamber choirs and musicals, I enjoy everything from classical to a good headbanger. </em></span></p> <p><span class="tinytext"><em><i>Now that I’ve begun working at Stingray Music as a technical coordinator, investigating hardware and software discrepancies for our clients, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to attend the Mundial Montreal festival. </i></em></span></p> <p><span class="tinytext"><em><i>It was an evening full of lively, fun festivities with one of the most entertaining and jaw-dropping show openers I’ve ever seen. </i></em></span></p> <p><span class="tinytext"><em><i>One of the things that made the night’s concert lineup unique was the transition between acts, which were presented in different venues. The audience was ushered from Montreal’s oldest cultural center and Roman Catholic church, The Gesù , to the L’Astral concert venue. This flow from one performance to the next encouraged audiences to explore the gorgeous grounds of Place des Arts while taking in the newly crisp and cool Canadian air. </i></em></span></p> <p><span class="tinytext"><em><i>But, it wasn’t too chilly as the performances welcomed us with great warmth, rhythm, and an inspiration to get our groove on. </i></em></span></p> <p><span class="tinytext"><em><i>The first performance, by the Canadian folk band from Prince Edward Island, Gordie Mackeeman and His Rhythm Boys, was the perfect show opener. With their Maritime charm and music that makes the heart sing, the band delivered a never-before-seen performance of folky tunes and tapdancing. Lead singer and tap dancer Gordie Mackeeman wowed the audience with his incredible moves. He leapt from the floor to the top of the Rhythm Boys big bass. As Mackeeman stood atop of the bass, both he and the bassist continued to strum along to the tune— Mackeeman on fiddler and the Rhythm Boys on bass! You couldn’t help but laugh and cry with joy. Their performance was something out of a storybook with their incredible energy and clever coordination of fun and play. It was not until exiting the auditorium into the chilly outdoors that you remembered you were in Montreal and not on a boat destined for some unknown land. </i></em></span></p> <p><span class="tinytext"><em><i>The following performance took place at the L’Astral, only a short walk from The Gesù.</i></em></span></p> <p><span class="tinytext"><em><i>The show by Miroca Paris took audiences far, far away from Montreal’s plummeting temperatures to a tropical oasis of song and rhythm. Crossing the North Atlantic ocean from Lisbon, Portugal, Miroca Paris brought the heat. </i></em></span></p> <p><span class="tinytext"><em><i></i></em></span></p> </div> <div class="col"> <p><span class="tinytext"><em><i>With his charm and passionate performance, it was difficult to stay sitting down. Audiences young and old crowded the stage, dancing and jiving to Miroca Paris’ bold musical persuasion. I could barely hold on to my beer. With heartfelt vocals, vibrant guitar, bongo drums, and a splash of jazzy colour from the band’s single trumpeter, Miroca Paris was daring. The band combined a spectrum of music genres from Latin to jazz that I yearn to hear more often. The only way to guarantee I once again experience this bold combination of musical flavor is to see them another show (now you know what is on my Christmas list this year!) </i></em></span></p> <h2>_____</h2> <h2>About the artists</h2> <h2><span class="tinytext"><strong>Gordie Mackeeman and His Rhythm Boys</strong></span></h2> <p><span class="tinytext">Gracing stages around the world with flashes of flair and fancy footwork, and a disregard for predictable stage presence, Gordie MacKeeman and His Rhythm Boys are renowned for their high-energy exhilarating live show, jaw-dropping stagecraft, and showmanship. The quartet rocks a signature style that infuses their love of traditional bluegrass with western swing, Celtic dance, and old-time roots music to deliver an eclectic wardrobe of tunes that’s as unique and entertaining as they are.</span></p> <h2><span class="tinytext"><strong>Miroca Paris</strong></span></h2> <p><span class="tinytext">Starting his career as a virtuoso percussionist with Cesaria Evora for 11 years this multi-instrumentalist is finally sharing his music live and on an highly-anticipated album "D'ALMA". Dubbed the “Island Rhythm Innovator” Miroca combines his raspy warm voice with playful and fresh afro-grooves on guitar. The artist is supported by the Instituto Camões &amp; the Consulate General of Portugal in Montreal, and GDA Portuguese artists' recording rights organization.</span></p> </div> </div> </div>

href="http://www.hardlystrictlybluegrass.com/2018/">Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival</a>.</p> <p>This is the 18th edition of a festival that drew over half a million people to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park to watch shows on 6 stages over 3 days. Folk, Roots, Americana, and Bluegrass are not exactly music genres one associates with crowds of that size! Past years have seen the audience swell to 750,000. It’s safe to say that California continues to be a cultural tastemaker!<br /><br /> The festival was founded by Warren Hellman, the late billionaire/philanthropist whose love of bluegrass and corresponding roots genres drove him to underwrite the festival as a gift to the city, rejecting all forms of commercial co-sponsorship along the way and securing it as a free event.</p> <p>Most of the artists performing at the festival are in heavy rotation on our roots music channels:</p> <p><span class="button-video"><a href="http://music.stingray.com/en/channels/VIB_S0464?utm_source=stingray-blog-website&amp;utm_medium=referral" target="_blank">Sweet Home Americana</a> </span></p> <p><span class="button-video"><a href="http://music.stingray.com/en/channels/VIB_S0027?utm_source=stingray-blog-website&amp;utm_medium=referral" target="_blank">Today’s Folk Tunes</a> </span></p> <p><span class="button-video"><a href="http://music.stingray.com/en/channels/VIB_S0084?utm_source=stingray-blog-website&amp;utm_medium=referral" target="_blank">Modern Bluegrass</a> </span></p> <figure role="group" class="caption caption-img"><img alt="Crowd for Emmylou Harris" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="7ee51452-3c00-4ee9-b240-b639ef2a88ea" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/Crowd%20for%20Emmylou%20Harris_0.jpg" /><figcaption>Crowd for Emmylou Harris</figcaption></figure><div class="row-wrapper wysiwyg"> <div class="row"> <div class="col"> <h2> </h2> <figure role="group" class="caption caption-img"><img alt="Buddy Miller’s Cavalcade of Stars Featuring the McCrary Sisters, Tracy Nelson, Buddy Miller, Molly Tuttle, and The War and Treaty." data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="a4711a18-772e-40cd-832c-f0c84331be7e" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/Buddy%20Miller%E2%80%99s%20Cavalcade%20of%20Stars%20Featuring%20the%20McCrary%20Sisters%2C%20Tracy%20Nelson%2C%20Buddy%20Miller%2C%20Molly%20Tuttle%2C%20and%20The%20War%20and%20Treaty.%20%281%29_0.jpg" /><figcaption>Buddy Miller’s Cavalcade of Stars Featuring the McCrary Sisters, Tracy Nelson, Buddy Miller, Molly Tuttle, and The War and Treaty.</figcaption></figure><p> </p> </div> <div class="col"> <h2> </h2> <figure role="group" class="caption caption-img"><img alt="Courtney Marie Andrews" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="233a92f7-768c-4bce-91ed-de9cc1c3d47a" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/Courtney%20Marie%20Andrews_0.jpg" /><figcaption>Courtney Marie Andrews</figcaption></figure><p> </p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="row-wrapper wysiwyg"> <div class="row"> <div class="col"><figure role="group" class="caption caption-img"><img alt="Dustin and Kevin Welch" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="5133f9e3-4623-469d-83ff-145958a37403" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/Dustin%20and%20Kevin%20Welch_0.jpg" /><figcaption>Dustin and Kevin Welch</figcaption></figure><p> </p> </div> <div class="col"><figure role="group" class="caption caption-img"><img alt="Kacy and Clayton -

C’est une mission que porte très bien son chef et directeur artistique actuel, Alain Trudel. L’excellence de l’orchestre l’amène aussi à être de plus en plus l’invité de festivals de renom à l’extérieur des frontières de Laval, comme le Festival international de Lanaudière, le Festival Montréal en lumière ou encore la série Arte Musica, à la Salle Bourgie du Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal. Le chef Alain Trudel, récemment nommé Directeur musical du Toledo Symphony Orchestra (États-Unis), nous fait découvrir ses cinq coups de cœur de la saison 2018-19 de l’OSL.</p> <h4><em>« Cette saison, je voulais que chaque concert devienne un événement en soi. Les concerts n’ont pas été programmés comme une série, mais plutôt dans l’esprit de rendre chaque rendez-vous unique. Ce seront des moments marquants! » </em></h4> <p>- Alain Trudel, chef de l’Orchestre symphonique de Laval</p> <h3>1) Les œuvres révolutionnaires</h3> <p><img alt="Berlioz" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="1c5c0985-2b74-4df9-b178-77d2a4c25d7e" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/Berlioz_coup-de-coeur-1.JPG" /></p> <p>« Ça faisait cinq ans que je souhaitais programmer la Symphonie fantastique de Berlioz avec l’Orchestre symphonique de Laval. C’est une œuvre révolutionnaire à plusieurs points de vue! Je l’ai dirigée souvent, mais ce sera ma première fois avec l’OSL et c’est notre plus grande œuvre de la saison. Il y aura aussi 73 musiciens sur scène! »</p> <p><em>Quand entendre la Symphonie fantastique? </em><a href="https://www.osl.qc.ca/fr/concerts/r%C3%A9volution" target="_blank">Le 26 septembre à 19h30, à la Salle André-Mathieu.</a></p> <p>« La 3e Symphonie de Beethoven est elle aussi une pièce révolutionnaire que j’aime beaucoup. Avant son existence, la grande majorité des symphonies duraient 25 minutes – et celle-là en fait 45! L’instrumentation était aussi avant-gardiste pour l’époque, notamment par l’utilisation d’un 3e cor. À l’origine inspirée des idées révolutionnaires véhiculées par Napoléon, Beethoven a déchiré la page couverture de l’œuvre (qui lui était dédiée) lorsque Napoléon a décidé de se nommer empereur! »</p> <p><em>Quand entendre la Symphonie no3 de Beethoven?</em> <a href="https://www.osl.qc.ca/fr/concerts/libert%C3%A9" target="_blank">Le 24 avril 2019 à 19 h 30</a><a href="https://www.osl.qc.ca/fr/concerts/libert%C3%A9">, à la Salle André-Mathieu.</a></p> <h3>2) La Sérénade de Leonard Bernstein</h3> <p><img alt="Martin Chalifour" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="3b0e5223-6762-452c-9309-54802348dad9" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/Martin-Chalifour_coup-de-coeur-2.jpg" /></p> <p>« La magnifique Sérénade pour violon, cordes, harpe et percussions de Leonard Bernstein est une œuvre que j’adore! Je la dirigerai pour la première fois et j’ai très hâte. Ce sera aussi l’occasion pour nous de faire entendre l’un des plus grands violonistes québécois : Martin Chalifour, qui est violon solo de l’Orchestre philharmonique de Los Angeles. Il a déjà joué la Sérénade avec le Los Angeles Philharmonic et Esa-Pekka Salonen, en tournée au Lincoln Center de New-York… ça promet! »</p> <p><em>Quand entendre la Sérénade de Bernstein?</em> <a href="https://www.osl.qc.ca/fr/concerts/bernstein" target="_blank">Le 7 novembre 2018 à 19 h 30</a><a href="https://www.osl.qc.ca/fr/concerts/bernstein" target="_blank">, à la Salle André-Mathieu.</a></p> <h3>3) La Cantate BWV 199 « Mein Herze schwimmt im Blut » de Jean-Sébastien Bach</h3> <p><img alt="Bach" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="5af631f8-6eb9-4b2c-8c29-16cdcded2287" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/Bach_coup-de-coeur-3.jpg" /></p> <p>« Cette Cantate de Bach, profondément humaine, est l’une de mes préférées. Elle nous rappelle ce qu’il y a d’humain dans la religion, mais dépeint en même temps l’humain allant vers le divin. La Cantate 199 n’est pas un discours qui ne fait que prêcher quelque chose de divin, mais puise plutôt dans l’expérience humaine, ce que je trouve inspirant. Cette œuvre me touche beaucoup, et c’est selon moi notre pièce de l’année à l’Orchestre! »</p> <p><em>Quand entendre la Cantate BWV 199 de Bach? </em><a href="//www.osl.qc.ca/fr/concerts/baroque " target="_blank">Le 12 décembre 2018 à 19h30, à la Salle André-Mathieu OU le 25 novembre 2018 à 14h, à la Salle Bourgie. </a></p> <h3>4) La Symphonie Mathis le peintre de Paul Hindemith</h3> <p><img alt="Hindemith " data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="436445ca-c797-4eb7-9bf3-3095484e0d8a" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/Hindemith_coup-de-coeur-4.jpg" /></p> <p>« La musique de Paul Hindemith est pratiquement jamais jouée, mais tellement belle. Ce compositeur a été proscrit par les nazis de son vivant qui l’ont même qualifié de « dégénéré ». Peu d’orchestres jouent du Hindemith au Canada, et je suis fier que l’on arrive à en programmer à l’OSL (nous avions joué la Musique de concert pour orchestre à cordes et cuivres en 2014). C’est la première fois que nous jouerons la Symphonie Mathis le peintre à l’Orchestre – et à mon souvenir elle n’a pas été jouée depuis fort longtemps au Québec. L’œuvre provient d’un opéra de Paul Hindemith et est de toute beauté… on ne doit pas s’en priver! »</p> <p><em>Quand entendre la Symphonie Mathis le peintre de Paul Hindemith?</em><a href="https://www.osl.qc.ca/fr/concerts/libert%C3%A9" target="_blank"> Le 24 avril 2019 à 19 h 30, à la Salle André-Mathieu.</a> </p> <h3>5) Les créations jouées cette année</h3> <p><img alt="Petros Shoujounian, Komitas, Nicole Lizée" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="652aa815-e928-4f43-bd1d-527357b557b6" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/Cr%C3%A9ations_coup-de-coeur-5.jpg" /></p> <p>« Les moments forts de notre saison seront aussi les œuvres que nous créerons. Tout d’abord, celle de la compositrice montréalaise <strong>Nicole Lizée</strong> : l’œuvre s’inscrira dans le concept du concert, et donc s’inspirera des idéaux de la liberté. Des images multimédia en lien avec l’œuvre accompagneront en direct l’Orchestre sur scène… ça promet d’être intense!</p> <p>Il y aura également deux œuvres de <strong>Petros Shoujounian</strong>, avec qui j’ai collaboré dans les derniers mois. Il a composé sur mesure un concerto pour tout l’Orchestre inspiré des œuvres spirituelles du chantre arménien Komitas. La pièce regroupera tous les éléments d’une messe, un peu comme une sorte de messe concertante – plusieurs beaux moments en perspective! Petros Shoujounian a aussi composé un concerto pour la grande pianiste Louise Bessette et nous, également sur des thèmes de Komitas. Ces œuvres gagnent à être connues.</p> <p>Le Garbage Concerto de <strong>Jan Jarvlep</strong> a déjà été joué au Canada et ce n’est donc pas une création, mais l’œuvre sera jouée pour la première fois au Québec. C’est un concerto pour percussions inspiré du recyclage et joué sur instruments recyclés… tellement un beau message à envoyer! »</p> <p>Quand entendre les créations qui seront jouées à l’Orchestre symphonique de Laval?</p> <p>• Œuvre pour orchestre et images multimédia, de Nicole Lizée :<a href="https://www.osl.qc.ca/fr/concerts/libert%C3%A9 " target="_blank"> le 24 avril 2018 à 19h30, à la Salle André-Mathieu </a></p> <p>• Œuvres de Komitas réarrangées par Petros Shoujounian : <a href="https://www.osl.qc.ca/fr/concerts/spirituelle-arm%C3%A9nie-0 " target="_blank">le 27 mars 2019 à 19h30, à la Salle André-Mathieu </a></p> <p>• Garbage Concerto, de Jan Jarvlep : <a href="https://www.osl.qc.ca/fr/concerts/r%C3%A9volution " target="_blank">le 26 septembre 2018 à 19h30, à la Salle André-Mathieu. </a></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Découvrez la saison :</strong> <a href="https://www.osl.qc.ca/fr" target="_blank">osl.qc.ca</a></p> <p><a href="https://www.facebook.com/OSLaval " target="_blank">Facebook</a> - <a href="https://twitter.com/OSLaval " target="_blank">Twitter</a> - <a href="//www.instagram.com/os_laval/" target="_blank">Instagram</a></p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/classical" hreflang="en">Classical</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/baroque" hreflang="en">baroque</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/classique" hreflang="en">classique</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/festival" hreflang="en">Festival</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-stingray-brands field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/45" hreflang="en">Stingray Brava</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/97" hreflang="en">Stingray Classica</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/51" hreflang="en">Stingray Concerts</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/46" hreflang="en">Stingray DJAZZ</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/44" hreflang="en">Stingray Music</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-section field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__item"><a href="/discover" hreflang="en">Discover</a></div> <div class="field field--name-field-country field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/77" hreflang="en">North America</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-display-in-language field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/83" hreflang="en">French</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/blog/files/2018-09/OSL.jpg" width="1200" height="600" alt="OS Laval - Saison 2018-2019" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-show-in-listen field--type-boolean field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Show in Listen</div> <div class="field__item">Off</div> </div> Mon, 10 Sep 2018 14:33:33 +0000 Stingray 557 at https://blog.stingray.com Lord Byrun | FICG | Prix Étoiles Stingray https://blog.stingray.com/lord-byrun-prix-etoiles-stingray <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Lord Byrun | FICG | Prix Étoiles Stingray</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><a title="View user profile." href="/user/78" lang="" about="/user/78" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" class="username">Ariane</a></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Fri, 08/24/2018</span> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Nous avons pris la route le mercredi 22 août en direction de la belle ville de Granby pour assister à la grande finale du Festival international de la chanson de Granby (FICG). En explorant la ville avant la soirée si attendue, nous avons entendu de la musique partout : des vitrines dans de petites églises aux haut-parleurs sur la Principale. De la musique il y en a à Granby!</p> <p>Le FICG, qui fête cette année ses 50 ans, est le plus important concours de chanson francophone en Amérique et a pour but de découvrir, de développer et de promouvoir la relève de la chanson francophone d’ici et d’ailleurs.</p> <p>C’est pour cette raison que le FICG est un des partenaires de longue date du programme Prix Étoiles Stingray. Tout le monde qui travaille dans l’industrie de la musique au Canada sait à quel point le FICG est un des rendez-vous les plus importants pour découvrir la relève musicale de demain. D’ailleurs, voici certains de nos anciens lauréats Prix Étoiles Stingray découverts dans le cadre du FICG :</p> <p><a class="button" href="https://blog.stingray.com/50-ans-du-festival-international-de-la-chanson-de-granby-prix-etoiles-stingray" target="_blank">50 ans du Festival international de la chanson de Granby</a></p> <p>La soirée était animée par l’humoriste Alexandre Barrette qui n’a manqué aucun moment pour faire rire la foule et mettre les participants à l’aise. Les quatre finalistes<a href="https://www.facebook.com/lauralefebvremusique" target="_blank"> Laura Lefebvre</a> (Québec, QC), <a href="https://www.facebook.com/Jessy-Benjamin-134477433789736" target="_blank">Jessy Benjamin</a> (Varennes, QC), <a href="https://www.facebook.com/simonelliotmusique" target="_blank">Simon Elliot</a>  (Boisbriand, QC), et <a href="https://www.facebook.com/ByrunLord/" target="_blank">Lord Byrun</a> (Régina, SK) ont offert tour à tour de brèves et magnifiques performances.</p> <p>Évidemment, la direction musicale de Philippe Brault (accompagné des talentueux José Major, Rick Haworth, Audrey-Michèle Simard et Guido del Fabbro), la mise en scène de Robert Bellefeuille et les artistes invités (Sylvie Walker, Caroline Savoie et Nicolas Gémus) ont également contribué à rendre cette soirée mémorable.</p> <p>À l’entracte, un jury composé de 112 professionnels de l’industrie a délibéré et choisi ses coups de cœur 2018. La fébrilité se faisait sentir jusqu’aux derniers rangs du mythique Théâtre Palace de Granby. C’est vers 22 h qu’a enfin été dévoilé le grand gagnant de la 50e édition du FICG : Lord Byrun.</p> <p>L’artiste s’est ainsi vu remettre 50,000$ ainsi qu’une panoplie de prix dont le Prix Étoiles Stingray d’une valeur de 3000$. Nous avons bien hâte « d’écouter la suite » et attendons son matériel avec impatience!</p> <h3>À propos de Lord Byrun</h3> <p>Continuant dans la tradition, Lord Byrun est au service de la chanson avant tout. Originaire des prairies, il est connu pour son énergie en performance et ses paroles uniques. Il a un style singulier développé tout au long de son séjour dans le groupe Indigo Joseph. Lord Byrun adore composer des chansons, qu’il considère comme ses bébés. Pour lui, partager son art est un privilège.</p> <p>Nous avons rencontré Lord Byrun pour nous en dire plus sur sa victoire:</p> <p><strong>Quel est votre premier souvenir lié à la musique? </strong></p> <p>Mon premier souvenir est de mon frère qui a mis du AC/DC pour me montrer ce qu’était du rock.</p> <p><strong>Où et quand avez-vous commencé à jouer de la musique professionnellement? </strong></p> <p>J’ai commencé dans des bands en 10ème année et puis après le secondaire j’étais dans un band appelé Indigo Joseph pis on a joué dans des festivals, fait des tournées et on a enregistré un album ensemble.</p> <p><strong>Quelles sont vos principales influences musicales? </strong></p> <p>Mes influences sont pas mal éclectiques, mais des grands pour moi sont Bob Dylan, Talking Heads, Paul Simon et Brian Eno.</p> <p><strong>Comment en êtes-vous venu à jouer dans le cadre du FICG? </strong></p> <p>Dans l’Ouest il faut gagner des concours pour se rendre à Granby : Nouvelle Scène pour la Saskatchewan et après Chant’Ouest auxquels j’ai eu la chance de participer.</p> <p><strong>Que prévoyez-vous faire avec le montant d’argent associé au prix? </strong></p> <p>Je pense investir dans l’équipement pour bâtir un studio maison comme un vieux Fostex 8 Track.</p> <p><strong>Restez à l'affût des dernières nouvelles musicales.

Du 15 au 29 août, il accueillera plus d’une centaine d’artistes du Québec, du Canada et d’Europe. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Bien avant les concours télévisés <i>Canadian Idol</i> ou <i>La Voix</i>, ce festival s’était donné comme mission de découvrir les jeunes talents musicaux du chant et de la composition. Cinq décennies plus tard, le FICG recherche toujours des auteurs-compositeurs et interprètes aux carrières prometteuses, tous genres confondus.</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Les gagnants dans la catégorie « auteur-compositeur-interprète » reçoivent plusieurs prix dont le Prix Étoiles Stingray (auparavant connu sous le nom Prix Étoiles Galaxie) d’une valeur de 3000 $ qui vise à « contribuer à l’avancement des carrières d’artistes de la relève et à leur percée dans de nouveaux marchés. »</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Voici cinq lauréats de notre Prix Étoiles Stingray remis dans le cadre FICG qui ont su profiter de ce coup de pouce pour lancer leur carrière.</span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <h1><span><span><span><strong>Cinq gagnants, cinq styles différents</strong></span></span></span></h1> <p> </p> <p><span><span><span><strong>Pierre Lapointe (2001) – Chansonnier pop</strong></span></span></span></p> <p><img alt="Pierre Lapointe au Festival international de la chanson de Granby" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="e446127c-f92d-45f2-ade2-011848b128ca" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/2001%20-%20Pierre%20Lapointe%20laur%C3%A9at%20aci%20300dpi_0.jpg" /></p> <p><span><span><span>Pierre Lapointe a remporté le Festival international de la chanson de Granby en 2001 avant de devenir une vedette de la francophonie. Suite à son passage au FICG, il a rapidement lancé son premier album éponyme et a tourné au Québec et en Europe, se démarquant par son sens du spectacle et remportant le Félix de l’Album populaire de l’année en 2005.</span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><span><span><span>Plusieurs prix et albums plus tard, Pierre Lapointe est digne de sa réputation internationale en tant qu’artiste audacieux qui incorpore les arts visuels et la chorégraphie dans ses prestations. Lapointe SE REMÉMORE : « Je n’ai jamais oublié que c’est avec le Festival que mon chemin a débuté. C’est pour cette raison que j’y tiens ardemment. »</span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><span><span><span><strong>Alexandre Désilets (2006) – La voix en tant qu’instrument</strong></span></span></span></p> <p><img alt="Alexandre Desilets au Festival international de la chanson de Granby" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="f13393b0-1d9b-4c5b-aa00-7cc01b406a31" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/2006%20-%20Alexandre%20desilets%20au%20Festival%20international%20de%20la%20chanson%20de%20Granby.jpg" /></p> <p><span><span><span>Les critiques de l’édition 2006 du festival ont remarqué la voix planante d’Alexandre Désilets et l’ont comparé à celle de Thom Yorke de Radiohead. Pour la première fois, un lauréat remportait tous les prix. Désilets s’est ainsi vu remettre 50 000 $ pour l’aider à développer sa carrière, et c’est exactement ce qu’il a fait. en 2008, son album <i>Escalader l’ivresse</i> lui a valu 4 nominations à l’ADISQ et il a récolté plusieurs prix, incluant révélation de l’année Radio-Canada et le prix Félix-Leclerc. S’en sont suivis 3 albums, <i>La garde</i> (2010), <i>Fancy Ghetto</i> (2014) et <i>Windigo</i> (2016) qui lui a valu 2 Félix au gala de l’ADISQ en 2017. En septembre 2018, il lancera <i>Extravaganza</i>, single du EP du même nom. </span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><span><span><span>Désilets se rappelle « Avant Granby, j'écrivais mes chansons en anglais. Ce concours a donc été pour moi, la toute première occasion de présenter tout nouveau matériel francophone, d'abord destiné exclusivement au concours, mais qui a servi par la suite de fondation pour mon premier album. Le FICG aura été le point tournant de ma carrière, qui m'aura permis de mettre mon pied dans la grande porte de l'industrie. »</span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><strong><span><span><span>Patrice Michaud (2009) –Folk charmant</span></span></span></strong></p> <p><strong><span><span><span><img alt="Patrice Michaud au Festival international de la chanson de Granby" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="fdc2326c-2536-4cf0-bfd6-193f0482b515" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/2009%20Laur%C3%A9at%20DF3_0716Patrice%20Michaud%20cr%C3%A9dit%20photo%20Danielle%20Francis.JPG" /></span></span></span></strong></p> <p><span><span><span>Patrice Michaud, grâce à ses histoires et à son charisme, est sorti grand gagnant de la 41e édition du Festival et a remporté un Prix Étoiles Stingray accompagné d’une bourse de 4 000 $. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span> </span></span></span><span><span><span>Son deuxième album Le Feu de chaque jour connaît un énorme succès, notamment avec le premier extrait, « Mécaniques générales ». « Kamikaze », tiré de son dernier album, Almanach a gagné le prix de Chanson de l’année au Gala de l’ADISQ en 2017.

Not only is it held in my beloved city of Rotterdam, but the atmosphere, the diversity of people, and above all, the music provide a feeling of belonging. </span></span></span></strong></p> <p><span><span><span>North Sea is the only major jazz festival in the world where all the performances are in one place: the Ahoy conference center. Ever since the festival moved from The Hague to Rotterdam in 2006, it is noticeable how the organizers improve the festival experience year after year. There a bottleneck hindering the flow of people between two venues one year? You can rest assured that the logistics will be improved the following year. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><strong>Of course, in the end it’s all about the music, and as always the lineup did not disappoint. Here are the artists who made the biggest impression on me this year.</strong></span></span></span></p> <p><img alt="stingray-blog-Michael-League-Bokante-1-good.jpg" height="1676" src="/sites/blog/files/2018-07-northsea/stingray-blog-Michael-League-Bokante-1-good.jpg" width="2735" /></p> <p><span><span><span>This year’s artist in residence was <strong>Michael League</strong>, Snarky Puppy’s bass player and band leader. Being North Sea Jazz’s artist in residence means that you get carte blanche to perform every day of the festival. For Michael League, this meant Snarky Puppy performing with the Metropole Orchestra, but also taking the stage with his Bokanté project and a gluttony of special guests, from scheduled performances by Bassekou Kouyaté and Mehdi Haddab to an unscheduled performance by Pedrito Martinez. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>As with all festivals there are difficult choices to make. On Friday evening <strong>Badbadnotgood</strong>, <strong>Rohey</strong> and <strong>Hannah Williams &amp; The Affirmations</strong> were all playing at roughly the same time. On Saturday, there was a clash of the saxophone titans with <strong>Shabaka Hutchings and his Sons of Kemet</strong> scheduled to play at the same time as <strong>Pharoah Sanders</strong>. And on Sunday, there was the difficult choice of watching legends <strong>Jack DeJohnette</strong>, <strong>John Scofield</strong>, <strong>John Medeski</strong>, and <strong>Scott Colley</strong> or newcomer <strong>Moses Sumney</strong>. The latter provided one of the best shows of the festival with his intense falsetto combined with a captivating stage presence. When he walked into the crowd it felt as if he serenaded each and every one of us. </span></span></span></p> <p><img alt="stingray-blog-moses-sumney-1-good.jpg" height="1904" src="/sites/blog/files/2018-07-northsea/stingray-blog-moses-sumney-1-good.jpg" width="2735" /></p> <p><span><span><span>This year’s festival had a healthy mix of young artists and acts that have been around for much longer. Friday began with the <strong>O’Jays</strong> in the main hall, the Nile, and it was a pleasure for the crowd to discover that all those familiar songs come from this band. Hearing “Back Stabbers” and “Love Train” sung by the original voices is quite something. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Not quite in the same league, the closing act at the Nile was <strong>N.E.R.D</strong>., a band that can claim an equally impressive number of hit songs and the crowd loved it. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Besides these hitmakers there were also giants of the free jazz genre. The biggest highlight being the duo of <strong>Bill Frisell and John Surman</strong>. Where most free jazz can become devoid of melody, the beauty of Frisell’s guitar playing is that he always keeps it melodic no matter how sparse or full of notes a passage of play is. </span></span></span></p> <p><img alt="stingray-blog-RRN-1-good.jpg" height="1715" src="/sites/blog/files/2018-07-northsea/stingray-blog-RRN-1-good.jpg" width="2735" /></p> <p><span><span><span>On Saturday, the Darling was the playing ground of the new British Jazz Invasion where, in addition to Sons of Kemet, <strong>Nubya Garcia</strong> and <strong>Ezra Collective</strong> gave rousing performances. On the Friday, the Congo was the stage for the new North American jazz, heavily influenced by hip-hop. Badbadnotgood was the closing act of the day, and opener <strong>Cameron Graves</strong> set the tone with a fantastic sonic journey moving from classical piano to bepop and almost heavy metal drumming. My personal festival highlight, however, was <strong>R + R = Now</strong>, a kind of supergroup put together by Robert Glasper involving amongst others Terrace Martin and Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah. From time to time, the talent on display had some difficulty performing harmoniously as a group, but the best part was that they came together through humor. Certain phrasings in a solo would put smiles on the other players’ faces and the subtle communications happening at moments where the band would get back in the groove will stay with me forever. </span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Stay on the pulse of the most recent news in music.
