VERONNEAU take their classic sound to another level as they continue their multi-lingual adventure in world and jazz music. Their third album Love & Surrender presents captivating originals and cherished standards. The band takes a deep look at love as a human condition; a mature reflection on infatuation, passion, lust, loss, betrayal, loneliness, and love of family. Lynn Veronneau brings a virtuoso vocal grace to the nylon string acoustic melodies of band-mates Ken Avis and David Rosenblatt and percussionist Bruno Lucini.
Always eager to explore new sounds the VERONNEAU family grows on the new release to include the traditional Senegalese kora, French accordion, fusion violin and a touch of harmonica and electric guitar.
