The new show for Hyperbole has us rediscovering Daniel ROA’s inner performer. A show with a capital ‘S’, in it, you’ll find a bit of everything — multi-instrumentations, projections, choreography and much more! As always, Daniel promises to deliver a saucy groove, with energy, fun, and an ever-present wink. The album release will take place in three cities, all with a full presentation of the new show. Firstly, in his native Winnipeg, on November 24th, he will be at the CCFM in a double-bill with Alex Nevsky of Montreal. Secondly, Daniel will be in Ottawa on the Fourth Stage of the National Arts Centre on November 30th. And finally, he will wrap up with a third release party in Montreal on December 1st at O Patro Vys. The album will be available on iTunes as of November 24th.
The second opus of the franco-manitoban artist comes on the heels of the success of his first album, Le nombril du monde, where Daniel took us on a foray into his spirited musical universe, seasoned with lyrics stamped with intelligence, humour, and candor. The album was rewarded with a Western Canadian Music Award – Album francophone in 2009, as well as a Trille Or Award – Artiste de l’Ouest canadien par excellence in 2011. With exceptional musicians by his side, he has toured extensively across Canada, in Switzerland, and in France, meanwhile making time to write scores for theatre and engaging in studio recordings as a free-lance musician.
It is by a pure love of language and its infinite richness that Daniel ROA gave life to the first single of the new album. The song, Alphabête, tells an almost esoteric story of a songwriter who willfully delves into the inner depths of his dictionary, searching for that ever evasive mot juste. The song is yours to discover, as is the hilarious video which gives us insight into the mind of Daniel ROA.
