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.
