Following the release of the Soldier video and a summer tour across Western Canada, BEYRIES now presents J’aurai cent ans, a song written by Maxime Le Flaguais that she put to music. Louis-Jean Cormier, who produced the track, lends his warm voice in a way that brilliantly compliments hers, resulting in a soft and touching performance. The ballad perfectly represents BEYRIES’ sound. The music is captivating and takes us back to what is essential: the human heart.
The Québécois actor/poet Maxime Le Flaguais has quite a few works up his sleeve. He has a great love for his friend’s voice, as well as her knack for melodies, and so he offered her one of his poems. She picked up her guitar and the song took form musically in a matter of minutes. I was blown away, he says.
J’aurai cent ans will be featured on BEYRIES’ debut album, made up of mostly-English material, to be released on February 24th, 2017 via Bonsound. In the meantime, the Montreal-based artist will open for Safia Nolin on a few dates.
BEYRIES is a singer-songwriter and self-taught musician. She took refuge at an early age in the beauty of her family piano, which became a reassuring and immersive soundtrack for her childhood. Several years later came the desire to share and convert the vestiges of her past into lyrics and melodies. The result is touching and powerful music. Her songs are without pretension, and tend to bring people together with their universal and timeless themes.

Coup de coeur de Pénélope McQuade
Beyries sings, her voice wise and strong, building a fortress with every chorus.
Andrea Warner, CBC Music
Avec plusieurs intenses pièces comme You Are, J’aurai cent ans (collabo. avec Louis-Jean Cormier) et Wondering, le futur disque s’annonce déjà magnifique.

Un nouveau coup de foudre
Patrice Roy, Le Téléjournal
Quelle jolie voix cette fille! À découvrir: BEYRIES, une montréalaise incandescente.
Une force tranquille émane de sa voix et de ses mélodies à la sensibilité réconfortante.
