Vintage Vinyl – Renee Martel

by

Quebecois chanteuse Renee Martel was born in Drummondville in 1947, and over the course of a career that has spanned almost 50 years she’s sold 10 million records, won multiple Felix Awards (Quebec’s version of the Junos) and become a cultural icon in la belle province. Early successes as a pop singer were followed by struggles with alcohol, a switch to country music and a secondary career as a radio host (although she still records and tours to this day).

Réflexions was released in 1974 on Spectrum Records, and “Imagine une Seconde” is an easygoing country-tinged pop number with an easygoing charm reminiscent of vintage Sheryl Crow.
