Recounting a tale about finding that special someone, and counting blessings when that perfect person seemingly strolls into our lives and hearts, rising Canadian country music singer/songwriter Laurie LeBlanc brings his distinct harmonic style to his latest single, “Lucky In Love (LIL).”
Recorded at Miramichi, New Brunswick’s Barrytone Studios with multi-award-winner Jason Barry, stellar production value underlines tight songwriting and expert guitar playing that hits the heart with an upbeat swing and an irresistibly catchy hook.
The track features some of Canada’s most talented musicians, to boot — including five-time CCMA winner Ed Ringwald (Gordon Lightfoot, Anne Murray, Conway Twitty, Van Morrison), Steve O’Connor (Blue Rodeo), and Jason Barry (Dean Brody).
Coming off the heels of his East Coast Music Awards (ECMA)-nominated album, When It’s Right It’s Right, LeBlanc has been on fire since his musical introduction to English-speaking audiences after over a decade of performing Francophone music. “Everything began to fall into place,” he shares, “and I’m proud to now be able to show my versatility in both languages.”
New Brunswick-based artist Laurie LeBlanc has been dazzling audiences across the Maritimes and into Quebec for over a decade as an award-winning Francophone artist. Jumping from one official language to the other was no easy feat. It was a challenge that has paid dividends and drives LeBlanc to push further into uncharted waters. “I’ll always love singing in French and cherish the support I get from a francophone audience but hearing one of my songs on the radio alongside the Canadian and American country artists I admire gives me so much joy.”
With all of the momentum following his English-language releases, Laurie LeBlanc is shaping up to be a sonic force of rhythmic nature in the country music community and an exciting artist that should be on everyone’s radar.
