Marjo: Look straight ahead and move forward

With just months before jumping into the void, Marjo says she’s ready to take on the role of coaching the new season of “La Voix,” though there’s still a lot of the unknown waiting for her. .

In an interview with agency QMI, the singer-songwriter admitted it was still a little hard for her to anticipate everything that this new challenge would ask of her and bring back, but that she would throw herself into the adventure – headfirst – anyway .

“It’s new to me. I’ve never had a role like this, but I’m going to live it! I still have 46 years of stage experience, studio, writing and everything that encompasses the profession I do, so I don’t think I’m going to be swimming in nothing,” she said.

The rocker to whom we owe the radio hits “J’lâche pas”, “Ailleurs”, “Chats sauvage” and the undisputed anthem “Provocante” has also confessed to never having been too much of a visualization or creation type has expectations of new projects. She goes on and that’s it.

“I’m embarking on something I don’t know, but I agree to go there and I’ve accepted it out of sheer challenge. For the experience that it will bring me to live all this with people who want to sing and who want to make it their profession,” she explained, among other things.

This is also an opportunity for them to experiment with new ways of working. “The artists, we work a lot solo, it’s still a pair of sleeves; We will work as a gang! I think through all of this I will perfect my personality and learn to work in a team and share better,” she added.

“I can’t wait to see what I’m going to turn my chair for,” she then said, laughing, specifying that she wasn’t necessarily looking for a specific genre of music or type of voice. Above all, she wants to rely on what she will hear at the blind auditions, but without hiding her desire to spread a bit of good old rock with a Raven and Offenbach flavor. “It would be nice to hear some who are a little hoarse. Which shows us they’ve got a bit of chest in there.”

After almost half a century of career, according to the singer who is now one of the monuments of Quebec music, the secret of longevity lies in perseverance, perseverance and calm.

Marjolène Morin, who now lives on a mountaintop surrounded by forests in Saint-Sauveur in the Laurentians, finds in the North the tranquility artists need, she confided.

The one who gets up at 5 a.m. every morning – like her father, who was also a morning person – will also be there on Monday’s “La belle tour” for the Laurentides special to talk about it.

“Your head is free in the morning. Do not worry. We are okay. We do what we like,” says the gardening lover, who can often be seen with both hands in her flower beds and flowers, improving her flower bed and “cleaning it up nicely”.

The episode of “La belle tour” on the Laurentians will air this Monday from 8pm on TVA, while “La Voix” returns in January with Charles Lafortune as host.
