The Musician Guy Langlois is a multi-instrumentalist with formal training in classical and jazz music theory and performance. He has performed in many cover bands during his music career. Most recently he founded the Yellowknife Bluegrass Revue, which gained much popularity with the resurgence in bluegrass music. The Yellowknife Bluegrass Revue performed at many folk festivals in Canada. Mr. Langlois is currently working on his first album of original compositions, 'Ambiance'. The genre of music would be described as adult contemporary comparable to the music of 'Bruce Cockburn'. Mr. Langlois' lyrical phrasing is similar to that of Leonard Cohen. His music mixes the influences of traditional music with classical and jazz into strong pop arrangements with memorable melodies. Guy Langlois' musical influences are: Amazing Rhythm Aces, Jerry Jeff Walker, Van Morison and J.J. Cale in the pop genre; Debussy, Ravel and Mozart in the classical genre; John McLaughlin, Stanley Clark and the Weather Report in the jazz genre. The Project Ambiance is the conceptual recording, video and performance project of Guy Langlois. The concept of the album is to bring the listener to an emotional or physical place where the song was created, i.e. 'Canada's North'. The CD features music in the Pop/Adult genre of music and includes two songs performed in French. The album is presently in production with a tentative release date of September 2004. The album was recorded on Vancouver Island drawing from the large pool of talented musicians who perform in the area. Plans are underway to produce the video, 'Starlight'. The scheduled release date for the video is spring 2005.
