harvest breed 1aThe Sherbrooke group "Jake and the Leprechauns" that I have known since its early days, several years ago, 'has been burning up' stages of many Québécois venues, not only becomes increasingly popular, in Quebec but, also on the international scene. After winning an Independent Music Awards of New York (2011), the group, upon reflection, decided to choose a new promotion label of "Harvest Breed", a name which will now have the punch necessary to propel the group towards the supreme recognition of "Star group". In support of this new designation, a video clip and a new album, which will be launched, in April 2012 -- "Everything Changes". Folk-indie with magic arrangements, authentic compositions by Philippe Custeau is their claim-to-fame. The group initially made up of Philippe Custeau and Charles André Gosselin, grew bigger with the arrival of four other musicians, Sylvain Lussier, Simon Bergeron, Marc-Antoine Gosselin and Maxime Rouleau.

"Everything Changes" is recorded by Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire), winner of a Grammy and harvest breed 2apresenter of "Harvest Breed", a creation which brings back the sounds of the famous vinyls of the Seventies, like Neil Young, Cohen and many others. Among the 11 songs presented, one finds "Don't give up on me', 'We were famous' and 'We kicked walnut leaves'". According to their website, "The songs of Harvest Breed '' are, at the same time, resolutely modern in their writing and timeless in color and atmosphere". In 2012, the group will appear in Montreal and in the Estrie area, in Lake-Mégantic, at the Park des Braves, on July 12, 2012 (8p.m.).

The group also discloses an official launch of their new album to take place in Sherbrooke on April 13, 2012.
