Mark Fossen - Medicine Man

24 mars 2018

[English version below*]

Ne vous fiez pas trop aux apparences. Bien que la chanson démarre très calmement, elle gagne en intensité, au gré des minutes, et se termine par un final fort en émotions, comme on aime! Mark Fossen vient du Canada. L'artiste a récemment écrit sur sa page Facebook "J'aime vraiment ma vie, mais j'écris des chansons tristes parce que je trouve plus thérapeutique d'exprimer mes sentiments dans une chanson. Je réécoute ensuite ces chansons plus tard et je me dis: OMG mec, arrête de pleurnicher, personne ne veut l'entendre". Mark. Tu as tort. Tout le monde aimerait entendre de si jolies chansons, même si le contexte d'écriture est assez sombre. On traverse tous des périodes sombres, et il est vrai que l'écriture est un excellent remède. Elle l'est pour moi, quand je vous raconte mes découvertes musicales sur ce blog, et elle est un remède pour beaucoup d'artistes qui traversent des temps difficiles. Et lorsque le résultat est impressionnant, comme cette chanson, ça touche les gens. Communiquer entre nous, se transmettre des émotions, c'est précisément le but premier de notre blog. Bravo Mark, en plein dans le mille! Disponible sur Spotify et iTunes.

Do not be fooled by what you hear. Although the song starts very calmly, it increases in intensity, all along the minutes, and ends with a final part full of emotions, as we like! Mark Fossen is from Canada. The artist recently wrote on his Facebook page " I really do love my life, but I write sad songs because I find it more therapeutic to vent my feelings into a song. On the flipside when I'm good and happy, I have nothing to vent about, and those songs rarely get made. And believe me, I KNOW it's a buzzkill - I really do. Like, I write these songs that I later listen to and think to myself: OMG dude, stoppp yer whining. No one wants to hear it." Mark, you're wrong, everyone loves to hear such pretty songs, even if the writing context is quite dark. We all get trhough dark times, and it is true that writing is an excellent remedy. It's a good remedy for me, when I tell you about my amazing musical discoveries on this blog, and it is a cure for many artists who are going through difficult times. When the result is impressive, like this song, it touches people. Communicating between us, transmitting emotions, this is precisely the goal of our blog. Well done Mark, right in the middle of the target! Available on Spotify and iTunes.
