It shouldn’t be a surprise that someone as good as this is barely heard of outside the Francophone world, and it isn’t. But Pierre Lapointe needs to be heard and seen widely.

Meeting him was fascinating. See this: Pierre Lapointe: Le Meilleur

He is straightforward to talk with, but the thought put into everything is clear. He treats all that he does as an art project.

These make the case too. Je reviendrai is a wonderful song, Deux par deux rassemblés is irresistible

  1. Hi Kieron,

    Sorry, I can't find an email for you anywhere! I just read your features on Besnard Lakes and others over at The Arts Desk, and thought you might like my band, Her Name is Calla, too. We have a new album, The Quiet Lamb, out on 8th November. We fit somewhere between Besnard, Shearwater and Mogwai, and I really hope you'll like it!

    You can hear a track here:, and I can send you the album too - just drop us a message over at our website: under the Ask feature.

    Thanks so much, really hope you see this message as I'd love you to review us!
