Hot Air Balloons, Éclat, and Alexe Gaudreault


Alexe Gaudreault, a participant in Season 1 of The Voice, released the successful three-track EP last year, Placebo, the title-track of which became a Top 10 Franco radio hit. Now in 2016, she launches her debut, self-titled album of beautifully crafted pop songs. The current single “Éclat” is #3 at Franco radio across Quebec, and we have embedded its music video below. Momentum is going strong for this lovely young lady who is even getting discovered by music fans in France. Alexe along with Metric and Half Moon Run are opening the annual hot air balloon festival of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu (20 minutes SE of Montreal) at 12:00 EDT, August 13. It is the largest festival of its kind in Canada. Running through to August 21, performers also include OMI, Francesco Yates, Brett Kissel, Ariane Moffatt, Yoan, and many more!
