Mass-Market Popular Music and the Quebec Chanson

In the 1970s-80s, Quebec singer-songwriters like Robert Charlebois, Plume Latraverse and Paul Piché were in the forefront. However, other performers who were primarily singers were also successful (Nicole Martin, Emmanuelle, Renée Claude, Isabelle Pierre, Fabienne Thibeault, Patsy Gallant, Nanette and Boule Noire, René Simard, the disco group Toulouse (with Judi Richards), Ginette Reno, Céline Dion, Pier Béland, Belgazou, Marie Carmen, Johanne Blouin, Mitsou, Joe Bocan, Martine Saint-Clair, Martine Chevrier, Marjo, Diane Tell, Marie Philippe, Marie-Michèle Desrosiers, Mario Pelchat, Laurence Jalbert and Julie Masse). Certain French-speaking singer-songwriters were also active outside Quebec, such as Robert Paquette, Angèle Arsenault, Roch Voisine, and the group Hart Rouge.

Lyricists Stéphane Venne and Luc Plamondon attracted attention (the latter with the hit musicals Starmania and Notre-Dame de Paris/The Hunchback of Notre Dame). Yet other Quebec musicals like La légende de Jimmy, Cindy, Demain Matin, Montréal m'attend, Pied-de-poule, Vis ta vinaigrette, Nelligan, and more recently, Dracula, Don Juan (with Jean-François Breau), Roméo et Juliette and Le Petit Prince also made their mark.

Since 1990, the distinctions between artists have tended to ease. Still, performers like Marie Denise Pelletier, Luce Dufault, Nancy Dumais, Isabelle Boulay, Natasha St-Pier, Bruno Pelletier, Lynda Lemay, Dany Bédar, Nicola Ciccone, Ima, Gabrielle Destroismaisons and Caroline Néron seemed to be less appreciated by the Quebec intelligentsia than such singer-songwriters as Jean Leclerc (Jean Leloup), Pierre Lapointe or Ariane Moffatt, who were closer to their chansonnier roots. Acadian artists Marie-Jo Thério, Fredric Gary Comeau and Zéro Celsius remained equally marginalized in Quebec. On the other hand, song festivals in Granby, Petite-Vallée and Tadoussac helped discover new talent. The same was true for televised competitions like Star Académie and Canadian Idol, which, among others, brought Wilfred Le Bouthillier, Marie-Élaine Thibert, Annie Villeneuve, Éva Avila and Stéphanie Lapointe to the limelight.
