Welcome to Marc Audet Music
I find that music can satisfy or appeal to an important aspect of our soul. Music unites us and it brings peace and contentment. When I'm performing, it warms my heart to see smiles on people's faces, or tears in their eyes. I love to hear stories of how music inspires or motivates people. When you add music to a gathering, whether an art show or reception or farmer's market, it relaxes people and shifts the mood to a better place. When you bring music into a hospital or a care facility, it brings people to another place. Music is amazing. This is what brings me encouragement in performing and writing music.
Happy New Year!! I am very pleased to announce that I'll be putting on a series of folk music shows throughout the Ottawa Valley over the winter, with the "tour" kicking off in Deep River on January 19. I have other dates booked in Ottawa (January 26), Renfrew (January 31) and Combermere (February 09), and I'm working on dates in Pembroke and Killaloe. This is a 2 hour (2 set) show, with the second set focused on stories of the heritage of the Ottawa Valley put to rootsy folk songs. I love how Dave Gunning does this with his songwriting.
I'm also looking forward to having more time over the winter to work on new songs (and record them), and publish more videos of live performances. I also hope to figure out how to broadcast shows via live streaming, so STAY TUNED. Take care everybody, and all the best in 2020 ... Marc.
Here's an upbeat rocky folk song that I wrote a few years ago - I Favour You. This is a romantic song about having an "interest" in another person. How many television shows and movies have you seen where an interest evolves between work partners, but the interest remains only as an interest?. That tension is what inspired this upbeat folk song. Backing musicians include Brad Scott (banjo), Tyler Kealey (accordion), Blair Hogan (bass guitar and mandolin), Dylan Roberts (drums) and Jenna Steele (backing vocals). I hope you enjoy it. Check out the other songs from my album.
