Laurent Bourque- What We Talk About

Laurent Bourque- What We Talk AboutBorn and raised in Ottawa, Ontario, Laurent Bourque started playing music at age nine and subsequently began performing and recording with his first band by the age of twelve. The Spark was the name of said band, and it included his current studio drummer and all-around music partner, Jamie Kronick.

Three albums and a multitude of local and out-of-town shows later, Laurent decided to make the move to Montreal at the age of 17 to pursue music as a solo artist. In early 2007 began the writing and recording of his very first solo full-length album. Entitled “What We Talk About”, the album is being produced by Dean Watson at the Gallery Studios in Ottawa and features Jamie Kronick on drums, Dan F-M on Bass, and Laurent on everything else.
It is currently in production after a long stint of concerts, and will be ready for release by November of 2009.

Laurent has been performing in Montreal and its surrounding cities over the past year or so, gaining credibility and recognition from his peers and from industry professionals alike.
Here’s what they have to say:

“Laurent Bourque “gets it” – his voice, his guitar playing, his songs – he’s simply got a sound that pulls you in from the start and keeps you hanging on to every bit. A fresh mint sound with crafty songwriting and arrangements.”

-John Klepko (Producer – CBC Radio)

“Laurent Bourque is like a beach. captivating like the waves. sounds like the breeze and puts that Beach Boy smile on your face. Unlike modern trends, Laurent took the best of the 90’s and made it sound like today. There’s a youth knocking at your door again.”

Mikey Bernard (Talent Scout – M For Montreal showcase)

Laurent performs the majority of his shows with his full backing band, at times featuring an extended strings and horns section, and he is also known to play solo acoustic shows.

He has shared the stage with the following great acts: Jonah Matranga, Miracle Fortress, Amos The Transparent and Hollerado. Most importantly though, every night he shares the stage with some of his greatest friends and fellow musicians… which is all he really cares about in the end.
