444-0051: Geoffroy - "Good Boy"

"This one's for Papi..."

Geoffroy is an essential voice in Canadian music. Ten years and three LPs into a career that has solidified him as one of Quebec’s best artists, the Montreal-born songwriter and producer today takes the next step internationally with the release of fourth full-length, Good Boy

The project was sparked with the intention of creating Geoffroy’s most authentic work to date, blending organic instrumentation and electronic elements into a bright and rich album filled with diverse sounds, a collection of songs that moves beyond the brooding dept that defined recent works.

Geoffroy’s past releases have each reflected a different tone and period in the artist’s life and his evolution and experimentation with different sonic palettes. In this case, Good Boy sees Geoffroy look back and collaborate with longtime production partners Clement Leduc and Gabriel Gagnon, but also incorporate a diverse collection of new background musicians and singers that bring the album to life in vibrant colour.

That diversity was driven by a gradual shift in Geoffroy’s influences, having spent recent years immersing himself in the worlds of Cumbia music and a range of other Latin and African rhythmic styles that melded with his traditional singer-songwriter form to create something that feels truly international.

In fact the record’s narrative was inspired by a trip to Mexico where he befriended and ultimately adopted a shelter dog named Papi, bringing him from the streets of Mexico to Montreal. Papi serves as the mascot for the LP, but more importantly acts as an overarching metaphor for being lost, but ultimately found.
