Mr. Steve Amirault…

I recently had the pleasure of being in the FMP Matrix studio with Scott Ferguson in Dartmouth, NS. Scott is a veritable who’s who of Maritime musicians…what a fantastic memory he has! I was amazed at the people he knows. Scott mentioned Mr. Steve Amirault, (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNefDBCFTnA&feature=youtu.be) with whom I had taken some piano lessons quite some time ago…

(While technically I did take some lessons from Steve, I would not want to claim that I was a student per se, such a proclamation suggests a substantive connection—which I would have enjoyed, but is not the case…). I downloaded three of his CDs, “One Existence,” “Hold On, Let Go” and “Breath.” I listened to them all on the plane, I listened without interruption….and in fact, am listening to them now. I really enjoy all three, and in particular “One Existence” and really enjoy the tracks “Perfect World” and “Heroes.” Steve’s voice is a pleasure to listen to—comfortable and engaging at the same time, sits well in the mix, and has a great quality to it; his lyrics are interesting and thoughtful, the arrangements and solos are great!  It has been such a pleasure to listen to Steve Amirault’s CDs and to see what a stellar international music career he is making! What a career!  McGill…TO, Montreal…

It has indeed been a joy to get to re-acquaint myself with the music of Steve Amirault… from Nova Scotia to the world!
