EDITORS’ NOTES

Boom Desjardins lets his country-folk roots show on this down-home solo album. Known for the stirring ballads of his old band La Chicane, the singer/songwriter delves into the musical influences of his youth on Clandestin. The tender "Paris, Quévillon" uses plucked guitar and banjo to bridge the distance between him and a former lover. He waxes nostalgic on barroom rambler "Bière et whisky," his voice ranging from a growl to an open-hearted wail as he recalls his early performing days. And there's a touching purity to torch song "J'attendrai," an apt anthem for a hopeless romantic.
