Between recording and touring, he also landed parts in rock operas, increasing his fan base in new territories. Daniel Lavoie was born in Manitoba, Canada. He had the normal early love for music that many artists share. After polishing his skills by performing for small audiences, he moved up to recording.

In 1982, it was Cravings. Two years later he completed the album Tension, Attention.
