Biography

Daniel Bélanger (born in Montreal, 1962) is a French Canadian musician and singer. He is considered as one of the best Québécois songwriter and singer of the 90s. Most of his music is inspired by alternative rock, folk and electronic music.

In 1983, he founded the band Humphrey Salade with Eric Maier, Norman Lachance and Jean Gauvin. Unfortunately, timing was not right and the band never recorded.

His first solo album released in 1993, Les Insomniaques s’amusent has sold 175,000 copies and won the Félix for best pop-rock album. The first single released Opium was number one in Québec for seven weeks and won the Félix for Videoclip of the Year. This first album also earned him the ADISQ awards for Bestselling Album of the Year, Male Performer of the Year and Show of the Year in 1994. With this debut album, Bélanger had carved out his own special place in the hearts of Quebecers.

In 1996, Quatre saisons dans le désordre was released. Awards flooded in (Félix for the Pop-Rock Album, Singer-Songwriter and Show of the Year, in the singer-songwriter category), sales went wild (the album was certified Platinum), and titles like Les deux printemps, Sortez-moi de moi and Les Temps fous (Félix for Videoclip of the Year) topped the charts.

    J'ai demandé son album Quatre saison dans le désorde pour mon 9e anniversaire. J'aime encore autant cet album aujourd'hui 16 ans plus tard!

    Daniel Bélanger, he sets the high standard by which I compare other artists to. Each song a little masterpiece, creative and unique. A sheer pleasure to listen to. One doesn't need to know French to hear the passion in each track.
