Yoan, a country artist from Quebec may not be a name you have heard yet, but you will be hearing a lot about him from now on. The 20 year old has had immense success since releasing his debut self-titled album in March, which is now certified platinum, selling more than 100,000 copies since its release only a few months ago. He took the music scene by storm after winning La Voix in 2014, the French adaptation of the popular American singing competition, The Voice. The album features both French and English songs, as well as several collaborations including a cover of Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson’s “Good Hearted Woman” with fellow Canadian country singer, Brett Kissel.
He also has acoustic videos of his songs “Gonna Fall In Love With You” and “Goodbye Mother” that you need to see and hear to believe that this deep of a voice can come out of someone as young as 20 years old.

I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
