2020 release. Michael Doucet the Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, artist, founder of BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet, and Cajun legend crafts the quintessential Louisiana soundtrack to a good time on his solo album, Lcher Prise. Joined by Sarah Quintana [vocals, guitar], Chad Viator [guitar], Chris French [bass], and Jim Kolacek [drums], he stirs up a sweet and simmering brew of Acadian tradition, swamp soul, and infectious grooves. In many ways, the moniker embodies the spirit of these five musicians. "In French, Lcher Prise means 'let go'," Doucet explains. Doucet describes the album's music as "Les les Franais Zarico", a description that takes into account an eclectic mix of styles including New Orleans rhythm & blues and Southwest Louisiana rock 'n roll, as well as his own interpretations of zydeco and Cajun, infused with the intoxicating rhythms of the French Caribbean. The new band, now known as Michael Doucet avec Lcher Prise, recorded the ten songs comprising the debut in just three days at Dockside in Maurice, Louisiana, a hallowed studio that has hosted everyone from Dr. John to Allen Toussaint, and Rod Stewart to Arcade Fire.
