The origins of pop-rock outfit The Bright Road date back to around 2010, when singer-songwriter Philippe Garceau started collaborating with musicians in Montréal, Québec.
From those collaborations arose 2012’s Norway, an atmospheric album whose tranquil songs create space for reflection, peace, and solitude. David Brisson and Keven Juneau joined The Bright Road a few months after Norway was released, and the band attacked touring and songwriting with a new collaborative focus. After two years of writing songs together and being immersed in Montréal culture, Ocean was born. A symbol that accommodates all walks of life, the ocean is broad enough to welcome multiple stories and interpretations; even a new member: Léa Boudreau. For the band, it’s important for all listeners to let their own stories guide interpretations of Ocean. Garceau, Brisson, Juneau and Boudreau call music a “universal language” that communicates and brings people together in ways that words cannot.
