Hailing from southwest Nova Scotia, 19-year old singer-songwriter Jacques Surette spends most of his time writing songs about his culture and the part of the country he calls home. He started playing guitar at 12 and composing his own songs at 14. Jacques Surette is the new Acadian star, and is performing more and more around the area. While it was his father, renowned musician Eric Surette, who inspired him to start playing music, Jacques is completely self-taught. He started out writing songs in English but quickly realized that he wanted to use French to express himself in his music.
Over the past year, this young artist has garnered a lot of interest on social media with his simple yet touching songs. He was the big winner with four awards at the 2017 Stella Festival in Nova Scotia, which earned him a spot in the semi-finals of the Gala de la chanson de Caraquet in the summer of 2018. Le Grenier musique will manage Jacques Surette's first album, with renowned Acadian artist Lisa LeBlanc and Benoit Morier producing, both of whom are big fans. It will be Lisa’s first time producing an album, something she has always dreamed of doing, while Benoit has already produced several. This album is sure to lead to more shows and reach a wider audience.

Polaris Prize winner, Jeremy Dutcher is a classically trained operatic tenor and composer who takes every opportunity to blend his Wolastoq First Nation roots into the music he creates, blending distinct musical aesthetics that shape-shift between classical, traditional, and pop, to form something entirely new. Dutcher’s debut release, Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa, involves the rearrangement of early 1900s wax cylinder field recordings from his community. “Many of the songs were lost because our musical tradition was suppressed by the Canadian government. I'm doing this work as there's only about a hundred Wolastoqey speakers left. It's crucial that we're using our language because, if you lose the language, you're losing an entire distinct way of experiencing the world.”

Jourdan Thibodeaux is the guy you picture when someone says the word “authentic.” Straight from the blackjack boggy woods of Cypress Island, Louisiana, Jourdan is one of only a small number of young people speaking Cajun French today, and his soulful singing and fiddling are the perfect medium for his ever-growing repertoire of original Louisiana French songs. His musical ability and his crafty songwriting which is at once classic and progressive has afforded him a band comprised of some of the finest artists in Acadiana today: Cedric Watson (accordion), Alan Lafleur (bass), Joel Savoy (guitar), and Sean Broussard (drums), and they’re thrilled to announce their debut release on the acclaimed Valcour Records label. From foot-stomping two-steps to heart-breaking ballads, Jourdan Thibodeaux et les Rôdailleurs deliver la verité with a sound that will leave you wetter than running hoop nets in July!
