If I would like to make the best compliment to the singer, it would be: he has his own style.
You hear him singing, and you do not even to know the song - it's Daniel Lavoie.

Daniel Lavoie`s Assay
Release Date – November 16, 2011

Finutilité exists in me
What for are you telling me that?
For worthless poetry, ephemeral beauty ...
For the beauty, infinite to sadness.
For me, for you, who are nothing and everything at the same time.

With «Finutilité», from infinity to the insignificant and fleeting, Daniel Lavoie signs his first literary work. In this collection moments of perception follow each other, observation of contradictions, as well as over the revelations of life. Daniel Lavoie, challenging or comforting, talks about it passionately, with humor and sensitivity.
In Finutilité, Daniel Lavoie offers poems in texture, in the changing images, captured in its motion. Serious next to hilarious, sugar and salt, various shades of red are weaving; the deep sense of irony runs into the beautiful lightness of being. This is an allusion to the tragic aspect of modern life and its gaming side. The book is sometimes seek to provoke, sometimes suppress. There are moments of perception, thinking about the aspects of life, which concerns a lot, about the contradictions, but also of its manifestations. This book is written by the one, who notices much, who feels deeply and shares his observations with sense of humor and precision of expression.
The author-composer, singer, poet, actor and radio host, Daniel Lavoie, is known worldwide and he is recognized as one of the greatest artists of his time. Since his debut in his native Manitoba, beginning with «Nirvana bleu» to «Notre-Dame de Paris», passing through «Ils s'aiment», «Jours de Plaine» and «Le Petit Prince», his achievements and his work, especially in Canada and France, are impressive. Now you will discover a different aspect of the man with so many talents.
