Hidden Gems

I have in the past mentioned my occasional visits to Rivière-du-Loup, Québec, and the thriving music community there. The person who initially made this happen is Keven Lemieux, whom I have met almost every time I visited the town. What I haven’t talked enough sufficiently is that Keven is a remarkable and super versatile musician. Please take a moment to check out some samples here.

I particularly like this one done in hommage to Les Paul. Wow!


A few posts back, I posted a video of a local group remotely performing Under Pressure. Not to be outdone, Toronto’s own Tristan Avakian, a very sought-after guitarist—Ultimate Queen Celebration, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Cirque du Soleil (Quidam), and many broadway shows, plus as a songwriter/performer under the name As Waters—knocks it out of the park with UQC’s version of the same. Just listen with your eyes closed for a minute…

That’s it for this week, be well!

One thought on “Hidden Gems

  1. Felix,

    Two Part Thanks:

    1) I’m so grateful to you, Chris & Neil for so beautifully bigifying Bunker Town with your ManCave Studio magic. That unexpected, generous act critically catalyzed the creation of Stir It Up Someday. No shit.

    2) Ivory Towers adds a haunting reflective power to the show and fits exquisitely in the mix.

    The whole 90 min album feels like a super tight stage show.

    Love,

    Dan Boggs
