ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The singer/songwriter/guitar player reaches for the stars. Remy de Laroque’s third studio album "Where We're From" was recorded live at (the late) Sony Music Studio. Following the previous CDs: “1000 Lives” and “Carol’s on my Mind”, his new release aims at the soul.

This Acoustic Pop-Rock CD marks a raw, acoustico-melodic, textural sound. Produced with Pablo Arraya, it mixes an eclectic collection of 15 songs, with disparate influences.

Remy was born in Paris, France and is currently living in New York. Remy de Laroque's music has been critically compared to Sting & Wilco. The Beatles were a big inspiration growing up. Remy worked as a radio DJ before releasing his first single, “Motel” on the ‘Carrere France’ label. His fascination for American music then led him to New York, where he produced, wrote and performed with artists Rebecca Martin. He also opened a café on Avenue A, while performing and recording with his band in New York, he played at: The Knitting Factory, the Living Room, Rockwood, Arlene’s…

He is part of a group of emerging musicians sharing the stage, and recording together, such as: Dan Strauss, Bill Konig, Kate McGuire, Julianna Barwick …He also produces an acoustic video segment, writing one new song a week on youtube, in six months he performed over 40 original videos.

Fantastic Acoustic CD!
Remy de Laroque brings you a world of sounds in his album, "Where We're From." Remy's voice is warm and filled with personality. The harmonies are enriching and subtle. The arrangements are very textural, yet raw at the same time. A unique feature in the vast lineup of sounds is the use of the saxophone, an instrument you don't hear often in the acoustic genre. It works well and certainly adds to this album’s unforgettable quality. "Now What" opens the album, quickly introducing listeners to Remy’s impressive guitar work and passionate vocals. "Be Like Water" is a skippin'-down-the-way track with some beautiful harmonies, sax and a little whistling. Moreover, "1000 Lives" is a powerful ballad with some great classical elements and lots of vocal range. With production that is not overdone and of top-notch quality, this album is one that deserves to be heard.
