'Whatever It Takes' Recording Session

Documentary by Sofian Hamadaïne-Guest


Quentin Sauvé is a singer-songwriter from Laval, France. Sauvé is the bass player of hardcore-punk band Birds In Row. On his debut solo album "Whatever It Takes" he steps out of the shadows to show the world he is an incredible talent in his own right.

With Sauvé's moving vocals paired with an effected guitar, opener "Dead End" gently introduces us to his internal struggles with reclusion. This is where the immersion into his creative juxtaposition begins. Songs "Half Empty Glass", "People To Take Care Of", and "Love Is Home" whimsically explore personal introspection as layers of melody delicately swirl. In "Ghosts", "Selfless", "Bad New Bearers", and "Riddled" (complete with Flugelhorn) the sadness is hidden in plain sight, radiating beneath minimalist performances. Lastly in closer "Disappear" guitars gently shimmer and build as he tells an emotional tale of sibling dynamics. Altogether "Whatever It Takes" is a breathtaking listen that exceeds all expectations. Proving that less can in fact be so much more.
