Who's Saying What...
LePoidevin is winning over fans with his earnest voice and lyricism, for sure, but he's all the more intriguing for his composition with a loop pedal that captures his acoustic instruments one layer at a time.
- Vish Khanna, Exclaim!
Through his life, character and music, LePoidevin shows us, more than tells us, how to find strength forging our own path, singing our wounds to sleep and finding comfort in loving what we once feared.
- Nereida Fernandes, Exclaim!
If you're in the mood for the kind of melancholy that comes with long nights and cold mornings, you could easily do worse-the introspection and picture painting on moon wolves is top-notch storytelling.
- Bryan Birtles, VUE Weekly
At the Gazebo, Pat LePoidevin is spooling loops of guitar and fiddle. There is something of a rapids in the way he sings: his convictions do not slow him.
-DCMF Listener, Dawson City Music Festival
Like his indie-folk songs, Pat LePoidevin is unique. This isn’t a disparaging comment meant to relegate him to the type of musician who can never play outside a coffee shop; rather it is a compliment on both his music and personality.
-Spencer Brown, BEATROUTE
The most captivating moments are when it is just LePoidevin and his ukulele, and watching him gradually build a layered backtrack with a loop pedal. The beautiful song "You Know Your War," displays LePoidevin’s talent for effectively looping his vocals, into an ethereal and dreamy three-part vocal harmony.
- Angela Yen, UBC Discorder
A big boyish-looking friendly guy, quiet, coming off as humbly thankful in the best possible way, Pat's powerful voice and passionately heart-hitting lyrics gently shock and awe any enthusiastic listener into a genuine kind of man-I-gotta-get-this-guy's- album feeling.
