Baie-Saint-Paul, Canada-based singer-songwriter Yann Brassard continues his fast rise within the pop world with the release of his latest single titled “Rock Me Over.” The influence of the king of pop himself, Michael Jackson can be felt with a rare grace all throughout this new song that comes following-up to his previously released song, “Overnight,” a sublime retro-pop single inspired by the disco era.
Under the sounds of a falsely light pop song, supported by magnificent choirs and smashing instrumentation, «Rock Me Over» captivates and transports in a striking and energetic solar universe.
While “Overnight” was entirely recorded by himself during the quarantine, with every instrument except the drums recorded separately using only his mouth, in the footsteps of three-time Grammy® Award-winning and multi- Platinum-selling vocal band Pentatonix, “Rock Me Over” displays a much different facet of Brassard’s vision and yet confirms his immense potential.
After being a finalist in multiple musical competitions in Québec, such as La Voix 6, and releasing two french tracks, “Mission Commando” and “Dangereuse”, Yann Brassard’s new artistic identity stands out from current pop music with its diverse influences, taking the most iconic inspirations from the past and blending them with a modern vision of pop.
Born of a Haitian mother and a Quebecois father, Yann Brassard’s cultural and musical heritage sits at the intersection of pop, hip-hop, soul, r&b, and Latin music, a wide array of genres that give him all the tools to express his art with a rich diversity of moods and vibes. Influenced since his childhood by 70’s and 80’s disco music singers like the Bee Gees and Prince, Yann’s incredibly contagious energy is poured all over “Rock Me Over,” as we anticipate the record to become a classic in the near future.
Yann Brassard has also announced that a five-track EP will follow. Shining a refreshing light on pop music through these dark and challenging times, Yann is sure to make the crowds dance and feel happy!
