We all love them, the chanteurs and chanteuses of Quebec. The melancholic notes of their elegies transport us far across the harsh terrain of the northern regions; the dissenting sounds of their protest songs are heard through the valleys of the Saint-Lawrence bay to the wooden terrain of the Rouyn-Noranda. The poetry, the yearning for freedom. But few musicians have what it takes to make it here. Besides having the obvious dose of talent, there are some subtle points that every aspiring chanteur or chanteuses should consider. Take the following pointers to heart, and soon you too will be touring the industrial and farming towns of our lovely province.
  1. Drink You'll need that rough and raspy voice that makes all the felines go "…maudite, ta voix est ben sexy." Hard liquor, especially Whisky, Vodka, or Jagermeister are our personal recommendation for those long, intricate vocal training sessions.

  2. Smoke Quebecers love to smoke and they love listening to people that smoke, whether they are politicians or musicians; just keep in mind that you must choose your weapons wisely.
    • Cigarettes are a good call. They portray that tough, rebellious image that just reeks of coolness. Please turn to Reverend Cibby for more heavenly colloquy on this subject matter.
    • Cigars are a bad call. They are way too pretentious for the common Jean Guy. How is a pansy-ass cigar smoker supposed to survive the rigors of a 6 weeks tour through the beautiful Gaspesie region?
    • Weed is still somewhat of a close call. Our ex-prime minister did it, just about every great musician did it, possession of small amounts has been legalized, but still, your hardcore fans in the rugged terrains of the Abitibie-Temiscamingue region might not fully approve of it. This one should be left up to your own discretion and personal preferences.

  3. Look as rugged as possible Just like their countryside, Quebecers like their musicians rugged and raw. Being clean-shaven or even neat was the downfall of many aspiring artists. Rule of thumb: The longer your hair, the longer the lineup of luscious, libidinous, lewd ladies outside your trailer…or so they say.

  4. Own a motorbike, …or even better, be on good terms with the Hells Angels. This will allow you to get special photo ops, free coverage in Âllo Police and Journal De Montreal, and enable you to perform at numerous birthday bashes. A true stepping-stone!
