Biography

Biographie Yvan Voll

Yvan started out performing mainly in English, and it was only in 1995 that Yvan et les Voyous (Yvan and the Rogues) appeared on the scene, followed by a record and two videos. Through music, Yvan met other artists who encouraged him to dig deep within himself, reconnect with his roots, and create a style of his own. Yvan took that advice, spent some time traveling on his own and, in 1997 came his second recording, Triste Paris. This record would receive a writer-composer award at the 2001 Gala de la chanson franco-ontarienne (APCM).

Yvan came back home and carved out a career based in Montral, Ottawa and elsewhere in francophone Canada. He evolved musically, accompanied himself with new and talented musicians, and signed a national distribution agreement with a record label. A third album called Sans Question was well received for its diversity and fresh musical approach. It earned him a nomination in 2002 for best contemporary folk album (Association qubcoise de l'industrie du disque, du spectacle at de la video - ADISQ) and numerous nominations at the Gala de la chanson franco-ontarienne in 2003 and in 2011 for the album ImagiNation. In 2013 Voll released his 5th CD entitled The Dance of the Unbelievable to support breast cancer research and dedicated to his mother. "Breast cancer does not choose its company, and this is a cause that is very close to my heart," says Voll. "With The Dance of the Unbelievable, I hope that the idea of finding a cure for breast cancer is something that becomes very believable." Musically, Yvan is always on the move, even while learning to be a father to his son. As a result, he created a new musical approach for himself, producing shows in 2006, 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2013 at the National Arts Center. Yvan has performed many times on television and radio, university campuses, the summer festival circuit and workshops. As a dedicated artist, he is involved with different causes: fundraising for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, for the Canadian Parkinson's Society and for Le Dpanneur Sylvestre which helps the less fortunate and creates a positive community spirit. He continues to feed and share his passion constantly keeping the rhythm of the art. A rendezvous not to be missed: his next show and the launch of his new 6th album.

MOMENT Yvan Vollé , ©

Voila
Naufragé sur une frontière
Le soleil dit son au revoir
Je m’agrippe pour une histoire
De l’inconnu
La nuit
Comme l’apprentissage d’une nouvelle langue
La lune prépare son dialogue

In this moment when the light lands and rests
Between all that I spy, between all this breaths
When chiseling the faces on the stones of the path
I will take to arrive on the inside of the dream
I believe, give it faith so believe
The truth is in change
There we are
On the inside
Living the dream

Though at times in the distant peek of a mountain
I'll fly yes I fly
Be the sun moon wind star and the wind
Wont you fly , fly , fly High

Here in the moment when the dark seeks to wake
Beneath my eyes in a deep dream-scape
When planting the seeds in the garden of wild
I will grow to arrive to it all; the inside of dream
I believe, give it faith so believe
The truth is in change
There we are
On the inside
Living the dream

Though at times it's the distant peek of a mountain
I'll fly , yes I fly
Be the sun star and the wind
High

The Dance of the Unbelievable

Written By: Yvan Vollé

Carrying the story
The weight
Is their something heavier then the passed
Wrong and rights lining up
For the passing of the goods
Free it is
You just have to cross the line
The line of the unbelievable

All is good
In time to discover
All is good in time for you to acknowledge
Our fear’s

Supporting actors to you the light man and his Fans
Fluttering winds share the scripts that we have forgotten
Repeat the song again and again
Vales the dance of the unbelievable

All is good
In time to discover
All is good in time to now to now
Our fear’s

Forgotten it all
And dropped the key
Sate right down
Just to see what I was a part of
Face no Race
You just have to dance
The dance the dance
Of the unbelievable

All is good
In time for you to acknowledge
All is good
In time for you to acknowledge
To know are fears
