Welcome to Marc Audet Music
Thanks for visiting my web page, and Welcome! 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.
After three months into the pandemic, and 3 months of being cautious and protective, it's uplifting to see the benefits of all of us joining in this effort ... rules are beginning to relax and restaurants and other businesses are beginning to reopen. It is as though we are enjoying a second spring. Music is still on the back burner, unfortunately, but that's OK with me because I am really enjoying performing weekly in my Live Stream sessions. Tune in if you can (broadcast from my Facebook musician page). During many shows, my son Bradley Audet accompanies me with some flute or melodica, penny whistle, or organ/ piano. He is a fantastic musician, and he is helping me in my transition towards forming a folk music group, rather than just a solo act. The weekly live stream show is also reinforcing my desire to have (to establish) a weekly folk show at a charming little venue somewhere ... hmmmmm. Nevertheless, there are more songs to finish, more songs to write and record, and more time to figure out how to put a folk group together. Stay tuned on this journey. Thanks for visiting my web site, and please find a way to check out my weekly live streaming sessions - every Thursday night at 8 pm ET.

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.
