At Canadian Beats, we’re always looking for ways to help our readers find out more about all the talent that Canada has to offer, so we thought “Five Questions With” would be a great way to do this! Our first segment features Montreal based artist, Sandy Duperval.
Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
My name is Sandy Duperval, I know Duperval seems complicated to pronounce and doesn’t sound marketable but Duperval is the reason I’m here doing this thing called MUSIC. I grew up with my grandmother because my mom had me at 15 and thanks to my grandmother’s unconditional love and support; she gave me all the tools to become the artist that I am.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
I started as a Gospel singer, then studied Jazz music and fell madly in love with electronic music when I lived in Germany. Therefore, my style is influenced by all of the above; I like to say that I am an Indie Electronic Music Artist with a touch of Soul.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
Actually I do, I have a show called <Another Chance> October 21, 2016 at Le Belmont in Montreal. I’ll be singing and djing (yes at the same time) but this time I will have some of my faavourite musicians with me. With <Another Chance> I’m telling my story through mainly some of my productions and of course mixing them with a little twist of classic house/ top 40. I’m also releasing my 2nd music video, <Addicted>.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
Oh! That’s a tough one! I would say <Addicted>.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
I’m glad you’re asking, I can’t stop listening to TIKA the creator. https://soundcloud.com/tikathecreator She’s so pure, so real and so inspiring. Love her music!
If you’re in the area on October 21, be sure to check out her show:
