Patience please. Don’t quit too soon…

Jean-Michel Blais is a 31-year-old pianist from Montreal. He grew up in a rural French Catholic town in Quebec, and at age nine began tinkering with his family’s organ. By 16, he was invited by a conservatory to train as a classical pianist. Deep in the throes of teenage rebellion, Blais found the constraints of formal training cumbersome and, after two years of study, he decided to trade the conservatory for a life of world travel. Blais then spent his 20s living around the world — including stints in Berlin and South America — before finally settling in Montreal where he began to work on his debut album, entitled Il, which was released on Arts & Crafts on April 8, 2016.”

  8. The perfect soundtrack by which to enjoy my morning coffee, with the crashing of waves several hundred feet below and the exhortations of the mourning doves to linger a little longer a lovely back-up…. It doesn’t get much better….
