Born on June 24th, 1934
Author, songwriter, TV presenter, actor and producer from Quebec (Canada)
Jean-Pierre Ferland began his professional life with Radio Canada, not as a singer but as an accountant! The author-composer-singer Jean-Pierre Ferland was born in Montréal. He worked as a clerk at Radio Canada from 1956 to 1958, when he left his job and created the group Les Bozos, with Raymond Lévesque, Hervé Brousseau, Claude Léveillée, and Clémence DesRochers. In 1970, he released his album “Jaune” (Yellow), in which he sang Le Petit Roi, Le Chat du Café des Artistes, and Sing Sing. Celebrated by critics and the public alike, the album was surprising by its innovative aspect and by the quality of its conceptual structure and orchestration. It became a reference for the record industry. The album led to a show under the same name, which was just as remarkable.
