You Gotta Laugh
Singing in both French and English, Canadian singer songwriter Annette Campagne has worked with groups Folle Avoine and Hart Rouge, boasting an impressive list of accomplishments: Six albums, several radio hits and tours across Canada, Europe and the United States. Though mostly known in the French music industry in Québec, her first English solo album is in the works and set to be released in 2009. With her brand of pop/folk-rock music, some have compared her to the likes of Sheryl Crow and Shawn Colvin, two singer songwriters she particularly loves, but Annette has a style all her own, one she is only beginning to discover. Some have described her music as "intelligent hip chick music"... 10 beautifully crafted Pop/rock songs written and composed by talented Canadian singer songwriter "Annette" and brought to life with the help of don db benedictson (Western Canadian music awards recipient and nominee) Annette's songs weave intricately through life's paradoxes with a mix of compassion, contemplative detachment, humour and straight "shoot from the hip ness" leaving one with a strangely refreshing sense of hope. Strong melodic hooks are brought to life by powerful vocal and musical performances (Davy Gallant, Daniel Roy, Gilles Fournier & Joey Landreth) With over 20 years experience (with group's Hart Rouge and a solo career), this is Annette's ninth major album project. She has toured extensively throughout Canada, the United States and Europe and shared the stage with the likes of Barney Bentall, Tom Cochrane, Patricia Conroy and Johnny Cash!
