Second album by Marie-Pierre Leduc: such a musical complicity

Marie-Pierre Leduc's second album: such a musical bond< /p> UPDATE DAY

She had already been working in the Quebec musical world for years before joining Ariane Moffatt's team at La Voix 2016< /strong>. Marie-Pierre Leduc offers a second album inspired by the challenges that came with the pandemic. A folk-pop opus that feels good.

Marie-Pierre Leduc has been singing since she was very young. If her heart has long wavered between theater and singing, the one who developed a passion for music through musicals says that it is when she sings on stage that she feels most alive. 

On the sidelines of her theater studies in Saint-Hyacinthe, the singer from Valleyfield participated in all possible singing competitions, notably winning that of Cégep en spectacle. She explains that it was by being part of many cover groups of classic rock songs that she discovered her vocal strength and what made her vibrate. On stage, she embodied Tori Amos, Sheryl Crow, Janis Joplin. 

The time the storm passes

In the company of Michel Roy, her accomplice in life and in musical creation, the 44-year-old singer-songwriter has concocted Le temps que passe la temps, an album with an evocative title from the last two pandemic years. Produced and arranged by Michel (who also plays drums and acoustic guitars) and musician-producer Jay Lefebvre (Roch Voisine, Ginette Reno, Simple Plan), it is the opus that the couple consider their finest collaboration. to date. 

“What we're presenting, that's what we like, they explain. There seems to be an open door in Quebec for this pop-folk style and for our songs. We decided to go our own way, much like Janis [Joplin] did.”

If the eight pieces that make up this album written during the first confinement have a link with the pandemic, the creative duo insists: the work is full of positive touches. “The goal is to do good,” adds the couple, who use common writing and who were able to count on some advice and the external perspective of Nelson Minville when proofreading the texts.  

< p>The first extract, the song Dis-le moi, is the most pop song on the album. For the record, it is the father of Marie-Pierre – the interpreter of the character of Louis Fraser in the popular youth show of the 90s Watatatow– which will appear in the music video for the song slated for release in late May.

The Voice 

Marie-Pierre's time at La Voix was certainly formative for the artist, who gained greater self-confidence from it. 

“For me, The Voicewas a must, like a rite of passage to have visibility, explains the one who had to try her luck four times before being selected. It was a seal of approval and it gave me credibility and confidence to do business for real and dare to go all out. I now know who I am as a singer.”

After Mon univers, a self-produced debut album by their company Concepson Mpm in 2017, the duo, who have been together for 22 years, explains that they feel better surrounded; he signed on the Discs Artic label with producer Raymond Du Berger (Roxane Bruneau, Gerry Boulet, Patricia Kaas…) who will produce their third album, already scheduled for 2023. 

D' here there, several shows are announced in their region.
