The FestiVoix de Trois-Rivières has joined forces with the Lemay Brothers to offer a special gift to music lovers: a brand new Christmas song!
Written and composed by the Saint-Boniface duo, Noël Noël des Frères Lemay gives a nice nod to the crazy world of New Years Eve at the Lemays, aromatic and doubtful fermentations of their matting Yvette in the fur coats stacked on the bed. What bring back good memories to many Quebecers!
“It’s our first Christmas song. We were trying to make an energetic song, really in the typical style of the Lemay Brothers. We started to think about the funny facts of our Christmas parties and our family gatherings. Let’s say there is little fiction! We had a lot of fun composing that, ”says Michel Lemay, of the Lemay Brothers.
It was the general director of FestiVoix, Thomas Grégoire, who came into contact with him with this idea. “We’ve been participating in FestiVoix for several years and Thomas has always supported us. It’s great to have thought of us and to give us the chance to do this project, ”adds Michel Lemay.
“The Lemay Brothers played a lot on our stages. They have the creativity that matched the project and that crazy little side that we had in mind. The humor is present in the song. We really wanted to give our public and our partners a gift as Christmas approached, but it was important that it be fun and festive and that it take us out of the current period, ”explains Thomas Grégoire.
“We really like the Lemay Brothers,” he adds. They are professionals. They allowed us to create a universe that we normally create for a festival, but rather than being around a place, it’s around a song. ”
Through this initiative, the organization of FestiVoix also wanted to highlight the talent of artists from the Mauricie by providing support for their creations and the dissemination of their works.
“It’s a pleasure to work with artists to deliver a new song. But above all, we are broadcasters. We modestly test the production of songs. We simply launched the main lines of the project and the Lemay Brothers quickly understood the spirit we were looking for. They enhanced the ideas we had at the start. The lyrics will bring back memories for everyone. There is a Rigodon side that is very present and it is full of winks. ”
Noël Noël des Frères Lemay is now available on the social networks of FestiVoix de Trois-Rivières, as well as on digital music platforms (Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, etc.).
A music video directed by the Trois-Rivières videographer David Leblanc will also be unveiled over the next week.
