The Latest News

With the fall fast approaching, plans are coming together, and I’m excited to let you in on what can be expected in the next few months.

Le Grand 8 and the upcoming album

I have been invited to participate in “Le Grand 8” - a series of shows across Quebec and France! I will be performing alongside seven other talented musicians from France and Canada, between September and November.

The First Single is Launched!

Be sure to listen to your friendly local radio station for my new single,”Retour sur terre”! It’s the first exerpt from the album (due out this fall). And if you prefer, you can download it for FREE!

Have a listen, and let me know what you think!

Album Pre-Sale

I have great news…

I’m back from Montreal, where I’ve spent a few weeks in the studio working on pre-production and bed tracks for my first album, Prendre le pouls - Taking the pulse, with producer Benoit Morier (photos are up, for all you creepers :)). I’m very excited with everything we’ve done so far, and I’m confident that I’ll have a great CD to launch this fall.

However, I need funds to continue the project! I must raise $10,000 to finish the recording. Hence the ALBUM PRE-SALE!

Contact Ouest 2009 Follow-up

I recently played a showcase, where venues and presenters from all over come to scope out different acts. My show went over very well… So well, in fact, that I won the RGE-Acadie prize. That allows me to present another showcase in Moncton next month. I am also going there to build a show and to perform with “Les Rencontres qui chantent”, so it’s going to be a busy week!

Bimonthly Gig at Café Dabar

Come check out the first of my regular gigs, every other Thursday, at Café Dabar in Edmonton. I’ll be rocking out on my piano and guitar, trying out some new tunes, and jamming it up with some surprise special guests. Bonus: great coffee and drinks and a cozy atmosphere. Bring your friends!

Edmonton Chante... and more!‏

Hey everyone, thanks to all of you who have come down to see my shows recently, be they in Montreal at La Place des Arts in May, or here in Edmonton over the past few months. Lots of cool things are happening now, and I figure it’s a good time to give you an update on what’s going on in my world…

Francoforce Canadian Tour

Heyhey, I’m writing you from Winnipeg to give you an update on the crazy project that I’ve been working on for the past month.

I’m among 12 Canadian artists who have been selected to participate in La Francoforce, a big project that will tour Canada in the next three months.

Opening for Michel Rivard!

Heyhey, I hope you’re all keeping warm! (because it’s coOoOoOold here in Manitoba!)

May I suggest a few cures for the winter blues… ;)

Demo

I recorded a three-song demo a few months ago, and I figure there would be no better time than A FEW MONTHS AGO to tell you all about it. But we’ll settle for “now”. The demo was co-produced by the very talented Albertan guitarist and songwriter Joël Lavoie. The three tracks featured are Je m’ennuie, Le monde à voir, and Sainte-Geneviève, all of which you can download from my Myspace page: http://www.myspace.com/raphaelfreynet. And keep an ear out for them on your local francophone radio station!
