AccuRadio Song Of The Day-Vallieres

Album:Chacun Dans Son Espace

Singer songwriter Vincent Vallieres has had success in his native Quebec. He is unknown otherwise. He was born Aug. 8, 1978 in Sherbrooke, QC. He learned to play guitar and he began writing songs as a teen. Influences include Harmonium, Robert Charlebois and Paul Piche. Vallieres won second place in a songwriting contest and he recorded a demo. In 1997, local promoter Bernard Caza signed him to his BYC label. His 1999 CD Trente Arpents was successful in the rural areas of Quebec. Traditionally Montreal tends to spurn artists from the "back country" as it is called. Initially, Vallieres was sold as a folksinger. But he wanted to form a rock band. Chacun Dans Son Espace was his third album in 2003. By this time, he was just known as Vallieres. Vallieres writes and produces all his songs with the help of Eric Goulet on guitar and organ, Michel-Olivier Gasse on bass and Alain Berge on drums. Vallieres left BYC for Spectra in 2011. Vallieres just released a new single Bad Luck and he's touring Quebec. So that means a new album is coming. Here's Vallieres performing Manu on the ARTV show Pour L'Amour Du Country.
