Mario Boulianne Le Droit From his childhood in Cap-Rouge to his adolescence in London and the beginning of his adult life in Toronto, Sébastien Plante was immersed in an eclectic musical culture.
With his first solo project, the leader of the Respectables lifts the veil over a lifetime of music and mixtures of genres.
“After more than 30 years of career, this is my first solo album, to entrust the singer. I dug deep in my backpack to revive songs that I've been dragging with me for decades. Songs which, over the years, have been able to find maturity while keeping the innocence that they embodied at the time of writing. “
This project called The Lost Songbook includes 12 songs, including two covers.
On this subject, the artist and the director Richard Samson had given themselves the challenge of putting two “classics” on the album.
“We chose I'm a man from The Spencer Davis Group and Let'em In , from Paul McCartney,” says Sébastien Plante. These two songs, although totally different, define me quite well. We find there all the influence that the Beatles had on my writing as well as the sound of Spencer Davis. ”
In fact, it's the whole album that bathes in the world of Sébastien Plante. In the 10 original songs he offers, we can outline his musical roots.
The first track, Playing with my Heart , surfs on a groov e well supported by the Wurltitzer piano.
The song that follows, All That You Are, is definitely steeped in the musical world of The Beatles as the playful rock of Scooter Fever recalls the beginnings of The Who, The Small Faces and the Mod movement in London.
Other genres are mixed in this cake including the folk of You Made Me Real or the bossa nova of Love Again . There is also the very successful Ride On where the scents of country à la JJ Cale are well assumed.
