True Stories Told by François Lachance

francois-lachance-histoires-vraiesFrançois Lachance loves the movie Happy Gilmore, the song “Say You Won’t Let Go” by James Arthur, the musician Ed Sheeran, and heartthrob Cheryl Cole. Originally from Alma, QC, the Canadian recording artist was a finalist of the 2012 season of Star Academy and has just released his sophomore record Histoires vraies (True Stories). Its release immediately topped the iTunes musique francophone chart which does not surprise us, as the songs are catchy earworms with unpredictable chord changes and rich, professional production. Songs like “Les filles”, “Tu tournes dans ma tête”, and “Entre le soleil et la lune” enchanted us right away. He wrote the folk-rock tracks and decked them with his great vocals. The title was inspired by his desire to write songs about his own experiences. Histoires vraies is an instant winner, one that would certainly impress both Ed Sheeran and Cheryl Cole.  iTunes
