HINDSIGHT by laurent bourque
Born and raised in Ottawa, Canada, singer-songwriter Laurent Bourque turned heads with the release of his debut album PIECES OF YOUR PAST (2015)
Pieces of Your Past brought Laurent on tour all across across North America and Europe appearing at many festivals including the RBC Ottawa Bluesfest, North By Northeast, Ottawa Folk Festival, POP Montreal, Canadian Music Week and the In The Dead Of Winter Festival; sharing the stage with many great artists such as Andrew Bird, Alex Nevsky, Jenn Grant, Dan Mangan, Teddy Geiger and Buck 65.
Recorded with renowned producer Dave Draves, (Kathleen Edwards, Julie Doiron, Jim Bryson) the result is a charming, beautiful and honest folk/pop record addressing all themes of life in love. Laurent recorded Pieces of Your Past live to tape in the studio alongside his talented backing band (Jamie Kronick, drums, Phil Charbonneau, bass) completing the majority of the album in a single day. Anchored by Laurent’s melodic and powerful vocal style, the feelings, sounds and personality of Pieces of Your Past are what make it an undeniably exciting record.
In September of 2019, Laurent will be releasing his sophomore album HINDSIGHT.
This time Laurent worked closely with Juno nominated producer Dan Ledwell (Jenn Grant, Fortunate Ones, David Myles). The album is a collection of songs written around the world over the span of 2 years with various collaborators. Every title explores a different way one sees love from different points in your life. It is in essence the study of how the things that matter to us evolve over time as we grow.
Hindsight marks a a departure from laurent’s folk past taking influence from everyone from Radiohead, Frank Ocean and John Lennon following Laurent falling in love with playing the piano for the first time just a year ago.
