July 2015:

 

Here's a recent review of "I Should Have Never Let You Go" published on the New Canadian Music website.
 
Not only is it a rather flattering piece from journalist Kerry Doole but we also found out, elsewhere on that same site, that the song itself is one of their Top New Tracks this week, appearing just 15 slots away from Neil Young's new release!
 
Pretty exciting indeed!!!

- Official Press Release –

 

Strings Attached, the New Opus From LG Breton Is Here!
 
Montreal singer-songwriter LG Breton has released his second solo offering, Strings Attached. As the title suggests, it celebrates all kinds of stringed instruments: guitars, banjo, violins, double-bass, piano and, of course, vocal cords. Electric and electronic textures intertwine with various sound effects, and there are also elements of soul and folk on this EP.
 
Lyrically, "every song revolves around relationships" explains Breton. "I sing about one-night stands and summer flings. There are songs about communication problems and what happens when big promises are made. Inevitably, often indelibly, we affect each other's lives."
 
Several great firsts
 
Some of the aforementioned stringed instruments appear for the first time in Breton's personal repertoire. Other big "firsts" await the listener. Strings Attached marks the first time that Breton has released a song in French: the epic and very cinematic "Révérence" in which he exploits the full range of his voice, from the deepest spoken words to the very airy falsetto counter-melodies.
 
In addition, those who purchase the CD will receive a bonus track, a Spanish version of the EP's first single, "I Should Have Never Let You Go."
 
First-class collaborators
 
While LG Breton plays most of the instruments, there are some key collaborators on Strings Attached. His faithful studio partner, Stéphane Grimm, serves as recording and mixing engineer. There are several impeccable performances from guest musicians: Guido Del Fabbro on violin; Karl Surprenant on double-bass; Alexis Martin on percussion; and Alexis Loranger on violin and viola. Jozy Fever and Geneviève Dufresne sing backing vocals.
 
Touring dates
 
The new material is brilliantly transposed to the stage by a solid and colorful team of musicians. Songs from Breton's first album, Consider It Done! have been completely re-arranged for the occasion.
 
The Strings Attached tour is underway. Breton has performed his new music in Quebec City, L'Assomption, and Lavaltrie. He will be in Sutton on April 11 and Gatineau on April 17. More dates, including one for Montreal, will soon be announced on his website: www.lgbreton.com.
