Karine Tremblay La Tribune SHERBROOKE – New star in David Goudreault's already scintillating notebook: the Sherbrooke singer-songwriter won his first “team” Félix on Sunday evening in the author or composer of the year category for having put his signature on Louis-Jean Cormier's new opus, When Night Falls .
“It was a total surprise! It was already an honor to be on the list of named collaborators. Knowing that my name is engraved on a Félix is very significant because Félix Leclerc represents for me this symbiosis between the writer and the musician. He wrote huge songs, he signed poems, notebooks. For me, Félix is one of our most beautiful giants, a great one who allowed himself to travel from one artistic sphere to another. We have much to be proud of. Personally, that inspires me, ”comments the one who is also a novelist and poet.
The honors of the ADISQ come just a month before David Goudreault launches his next album, a project that has lived in him “for three or four years. “
His previous album, La fault au silence, dates back to 2014.
“I have put pressure on the accelerator in the past year. I co-direct and co-produce the record with Manu Militari and I can count on several collaborators, including Louis-Jean Cormier, precisely. “
Between the two handlers of words and melodies, a precious friendship has existed for several years.
“I think we are each fascinated by the work of the other. He invited me a few years ago to come and sing at his big show at the FrancoFolies, then to collaborate on his album before, in my turn, I offered him to participate in my new album. “
Two songs were born in the wake.
“But his influence also spills over to other titles on the record, because the exchanges we have between creators end up tinting the way we bring our ideas to life. “
