EDITORS’ NOTES

On his third album, Hélène, balladeer Roch Voisine strikes a delicate balance. The heartfelt title track finds him singing in disarmingly down-to-earth fashion, in French and English, over electric and acoustic guitar. That striking combination of versatility and emotional honesty takes a dark turn on the brooding, soul-searching "Pourtant". He pleads to a leaving lover on "Avant De Partir", never over-singing as he lays it all on the line against a gently bopping backdrop. Even the acoustic rocker "Fille De Pluie" isn't enough to shake him from his path of self-revelation.

About Roch Voisine

Though he wrote songs as a teenager, Roch Voisine studied physiotherapy at Canada's University of Ottawa. He began a solo career in 1988, however, releasing his self-titled debut the same year. One year later, Voisine wrote and recorded "Helene" with Stephane Lessard. The single (and following album) was successful in Quebec and France, eventually selling over one million copies. Roch Voisine has also released Double (1990) and I'll Always Be There (1993). ~ John Bush
