Biography

(2004 – present)

Check out the new album “Night & Day”!
Listen to three new Motown inspired songs from the CD below and download the single “Domino”

Since 2004, luis dubuc (a.k.a. The Secret Handshake) has penned and recorded scores of songs by himself. His signature electronic-pop sound landed him the sort of success many in the indie circuit could only wish for.

But for his latest full-length, Dubuc wasn’t going to find himself recording another batch of similar tracks. Enter Night & Day, As Dubuc quite succinctly describes Night & Day, “it’s a Motown record, man.”

“I wanted to take a chance,” Dubuc continues. “I wanted to take a risk on this record. I want to challenge people. I feel like it’s a special record. I feel like it has the potential to really move people to make people feel good about situations in their lives. It’s a soul record. I wanted an authentic sound with the new style.”

“My voice is still very much 2010 but the music is very much Motown… If there’s ever all-encompassing Motown revival record, this is it.”

    What you guys know about that Motown sound? NOTHING. Maybe if you all not so close minded then TSH would still be alive.

    Too bad he didn't get as much of a good response to Night & Day as he wanted and quit the band. :(

    I didn't like night and day but I mean I appreciate that he branched out and produced music that he was really feeling at the time. I think that's kinda the job of actual artists (as opposed to some artists who are told by record labels to appeal to the biggest audience) so good on him for it. Hopefully i'll like the next one better

    @JCCAKES: agreed, i love night and day, especially the day-version. I'm totally addicted to "Domino". Okay, it isn't real electronic anymore, but still great :] it's so sad he stopped this project. I listened to Of Legends and don't like it :I
