Transcript

  • 1. Garou
    "I always want to make people happy – to open myself up and give them everything I have inside me. Every single time." These words summarize the essence of Garou, who delivers nothing less than his soul to his audience in every one of his performances.
    Garou possesses a rare intensity. Profound generosity – a quality evident in his daily actions – seems to be its source. And those who gather to hear Garou sing are never disappointed, as they inevitably find themselves on the receiving end of his electric presence and generous performing commitment. "People come out to my shows and think they're there for me, but I'm there to be with them."
  • 2. First Steps
    Garou (Pierre Garand ) was orn in Sherbrooke, Quebec on June 26, 1972,
    At the age of three, Garou's parents, aware of his potential, presented their son with a guitar. His father, who played the instrument as a hobby, taught his son a few chords, and Garou immediately demonstrated an innate talent. Two years later, Garou discovered both the piano and the organ.
    . As a child he dreamed of becoming an archaeologist and was fascinated by excavation and the discovery process associated with it. In fact, as an adult, Garou acknowledges that archaeology and music share an important trait: both are linked by a child-like joy in sharing discoveries. "As an artist, you're in constant contact with the child inside you and the child-like fascination with life that makes people want to live. It's the reason I love to sing."
