It didn’t work for us, but becoming a singer is a dream I’ve always cherished, “says the one who became artists’ agent. The owner of the agency shows bromontoise The Box corpo, it works with Guylaine Tanguay, Mike Ward and Somnifrères, the two sons of Messmer.

But outside of his professional obligations, Dany Plourde spends a lot of time to put into words what goes through the head. “It’s my hobby. Full of subjects that challenge me. I wrote about the cons, about suicide, about many things. But my favourite subject, these are the romantic relationships, ” says the romantic assumed.

This is a love song entitled Beautiful cursed, who plays these days in several independent radio stations in the Maritimes and Quebec. “Beautiful damned, that you a night like you “, sings Dany Plourde on a catchy tune, not far removed from the worm in the ear.
