Daniel Desorcy plans to make Summer of 2022 one for the books

Daniel Desorcy performs at numerous music festivals showcasing his soulful tenor voice and “let’s have fun” attitude this Summer

Manitoba’s Daniel Desorcy has been busy making a name for himself in the country music scene. His latest single, “City Girl“, which was written by Jason Petric and Jason Blaine, and produced by Nashville’s Dave Thomson has been getting airplay on multiple stations across Manitoba. “City Girl” is the type of song to crank up in your car on a hot summer drive.

The summer of 2021 was a big summer for Daniel as we saw the release of City Girl along with the music video filmed by Manitoban Brett Anderson, features in newspapers, many radio interviews, and performances at many festivals and outdoor events.

2022 will be even better with multiple festival dates including June 11 at the Niverville Old Tyme County Fair in Manitoba, July 26 at Hanover Backporch Jam, and also debuting at the 2022 Dauphin’s Country Fest where he’ll be sharing the stage with Manitoba legend, Don Amero.

Watch the video for “City Girl” below, and find out more about Daniel Desorcy via our mini-interview.

First off, care to introduce yourself to our readers?

For sure! My name is Daniel Desorcy.

I’m a French Metis country artist, my music is English however. I’m from a small town in Manitoba called La Broquerie. I’m just your typical Canadian boy, who plays hockey, and loves hanging out with the gang. But I also grew up surrounded by music such as BeeGees, gospel, rock, country, and pop. I started playing guitar at 7 and sang on stage for the first time when I was 12 at a school concert. That time the music WAS French ha, and I’m still kicking.

You worked with Brett Anderson on the music video for “City Girl”, what was the highlight of the video shoot?

The whole shoot was a highlight, to be honest, we started day 1 at the rustic wedding barn here in La Broquerie which is a spectacular venue with great owners. We then found a nice dirt road on the 302 also in La Broquerie. The downside of those days was that I had to actually sing over and over so that my mouth would nicely match the track.. day 2 was a day full of fun, we started by driving the classic truck my buddy let me use, and then we made our way to Twisted Root campground in Marchand. Being my first video it’s safe to say I had my concerns going into it. But within 5m of chatting with Brett he made me feel like a seasoned pro, he made the whole experience feel like a night out with the gang and I can’t wait to work with him again because he’s awesome at his job and he’s a really good dude as well.

You worked with Jason Petric, Jason Blaine, and Dave Thomson on the single, what was that experience like?

I haven’t met Jason Blaine yet but I have met and continue to talk with Jason Petric. Jason showed some interest in my sound and one thing led to another and he gave me the opportunity to record City Girl which I’m forever grateful for. Jason continues to give me advice and is always willing to answer any questions I have no matter how dumb they might be ha. As for Dave Thomson, he’s worked with bands like Madeline Merlo, Rivertown Saints, and Lady A. He couldn’t be easier to work with, we go over what I want/like, what I’d like to try, etc and then he does his work and knocks it out of the park.

You have upcoming shows during June and throughout the summer, how does it feel to be back on the stage after a long break due to the Pandemic?

What excites me most about these upcoming shows is that they’re mostly all new places, which means new audiences. Being on stage no matter where I feel great and comfortable, I’m excited to perform new songs originals, and covers. I think the audience will really enjoy what I have in store for them this summer!

What else can we expect from you in 2022?

2022 I’m looking forward to all the shows and new venues such as Country Fest which will be my Cfest debut. Something else I’m going to be focusing on is meeting new people, I want to chat with everyone who comes to the shows and I want to get to know the people. I’m calling this summer the “let’s be friends tour”. Is it cheesy? You can say that ha but I really do mean it. I also have plans to release some live acoustic sessions, I’ll be making posters myself which will be available at each show. But like I said I really want to focus on the fans and get to know them more and more at each show.
