About Serge Laporte
SERGE LAPORTE so far
Serge Laporte’s work is best described by one word: versatility.
Equally at ease in the rock, orchestral and instrumental genres, his abilities are best put to use in the development of a global signature for each project, that is, from the original concept to the delivery of master tracks tailor-made for an artist or a production company.
Benefiting from a solid, hands-on experience in songwriting (Canadian Idol’s Sass Jordan, European star Plastic Bertrand) , music for jingles (La Capitale, Bell ExpressVu, Labatt Breweries, Canadian Tire, La Presse, etc.), TV and film scoring (L’amour avec un Grand A , FX Cartel (Montreal based award-winning film FX team) , L”heure de gloire: top French CBC show), arranging, producing and session guitar playing with the best artists, Serge Laporte has developed a unique and fresh approach to tackling assignments, efficiently and creatively from A to Z. He has earned four SOCAN Awards for songwriting and three ADISQ nominations (equivalent to Junos or Grammys) for his record producing skills.
Here are a few comments from the press on Serge Laporte’s work:
"... reminiscent of the very best Cirque du Soleil albums... Laporte's fine compositions... literally jump out of the speakers at you ... One of the year's best..."(Lloyd Barde, Backroads Music, USA) "...an obvious gift for classical arrangements and for an intelligent use, new and inspired, of the synthesizers and percussion... The music of Serge Laporte is a genuine breath of fresh air in a world of mass production with little inspiration..." (François Grapard, musical critic, FRANCE) "...Laporte's impressive musical skills and the album's incredible sound quality makes "Sea of a thousand stories" an amazing debut album for this Canadian composer... " (Tim Van Veen, Radio Slor, THE NETHERLANDS)
