Booster Fawn's frontman, Joshua Marc Seguin, penned the eleven tracks on 'Dreams Made Of Snowflakes' during his positive journey to sobriety. The album includes guitarist Eric Desjardins from Seguin's former band, Two-Year Carnival, and Elie Madison, who contributed bass to Booster Fawn's 'Wampire' EP (2021). Newcomer Alex Gaudio brings a raw, hopeful energy to the drums. Produced at Sub River Records near Montreal, the album is a cornerstone of the band's 'heart rock' vision.
'Dreams Made Of Snowflakes' captures the shift from addiction's shadows to a dream-like reality, blending potential with the vitality of a clean life. It's a celebration of the transformative power of survival. Seguin states, "This album embodies seizing and nurturing your dreams, preventing them from melting away."
Booster Fawn has been around the local Montreal music scene for almost a decade. Their unique heart rock sound combines inventive lyrics, electrifying guitar riffs and songs that are both rhytmically exciting and deeply soothing. Though they've released multiple albums and EPs in the past, their latest one, "Dreams Made Of Snowflakes" (out September now via Damaged Halo Records) primes them to be established as one of the city's most promising and exciting acts.
Booster Fawn is a collective of musicians founded in 2016 by the elusive Joshua Marc Seguin (b. 1989). Originally from a humble single-parent family in Raw Buck, Ontario, Josh has been frequenting the Montreal music scene since 2004 and it is the artists that were playing at this time that inspired him to make music and to live in Montreal, and this, since 2008. Booster Fawn produces albums that express what it means for them to be living on this earth. This usually means making a strange and delicious mixture of pop, folk and rock music inspired by their late 90's and early 2000's musical heroes, but with a distinctively modern twist. Before starting Booster Fawn, Josh was a professional snowskater for Ambition Snowskates (2008-2013).
Josh holds a BA in anthropology from McGill University (class of 2014) and is currently studying creative writing at Concordia University. During his McGill days he founded local MTL DIY venue Psychic City (2012-2017) with his friend and NFB illustrator Paloma Dawkins. At the time, Psychic City was a hotspot for college indie acts and his band Two-Year Carnival played alongside many other groups that have today all found success in their own way ((nutrients (fka. Trade Secrets)), (Iffin (fka. The This Many Boyfriends Club)), (Nighttime) and (Mich Cota (fka. Archery Guild))). Because of his background editing skateboard and snowskate videos, Josh also directs and edits all of the bands' music videos.
Their previous work with experimental label Jeunesse Cosmique (MTL) (Internet Mixtape #1, Sailor Songs and Psychic Laundry from Smoke-and-Mirror World), enabled them to explore various styles before settling on their unique brand of heart-rock. A following EP, "Wampire; Or, We'll Still Be Flowering Dragon Eggs Long After We Die" was released independently and sets the tone for the bands future releases.
Booster Fawn has played a good number of festival shows (POP Montreal (2018), Big on Bloor (2022) and Hudson Porchfest (2022)) as well as many MTL DIY shows. In April of 2023 they performed a live set of new material on CJLO's "The Alley" and in May 2023 they performed on CKUT's "Cafe CKUT". The band recently signed on Seattle-based indie label Damaged Halo. The band's current formation comprises of Eric Desjardins (lead guitar), Elie Madison (bass) and Harry Callahan (drums).
Their music has been compared to that of Leonard Cohen, David Bowie, Talking Heads, Richard Hell, Elton John, The Cure, Neutral Milk Hotel, Bob Dylan, Wolf Parade, Florence And The Machine, Soft Boys, Pink Floyd, Syd Barret, Robyn Hitchcock, Modest Mouse, Velvet Undergroud, Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Lou Reed, The Flaming Lips, Radiohead, Arcade Fire and Moz.
