Projet Orange


Formed in Quebec City around brothers Jean-Christophe Boies and Jean-Sébastien Boies, Projet Orange plays a britpop-like, catchy and flowing sound. Its success began when it won the Quebec musical contest L'Empire des futures stars. The name comes from an early show of multiple groups in which the band was partaking. It was required to enter the name of one's band on a sheet, where the names of the bands would be preceded by "Projet:" (Project:). Read more on Last.fm
Formed in Quebec City around brothers Jean-Christophe Boies and Jean-Sébastien Boies, Projet Orange plays a britpop-like, catchy and flowing sound. Its success began when it won the Quebec musical contest L'Empire des futures stars. The name comes from an early show of multiple groups in which the band was partaking. It was required to enter the name of one's band on a sheet, where the names of the bands would be preceded by "Projet:" (Project:). After seeing the orange coat of a fellow member, one band player entered Orange next to the term and thus the name was born. In 2002, member Jean-Sébastien survived to a blood disease, forcing the band to take a half-year hiatus and halt songwriting.

The first album, Projet Orange being entirely francophone, the second Megaphobe, in order to introduce the band to the English-speaking world (especially Canada), includes eleven pieces in English out of fifteen. It was created with the aid of singer-songwriter Simon Wilcox and producer Gavin Brown. The album is partly inspired by Jean-Sébastien's ordeal, as well as the September 11, 2001 attacks. The band made its last appearance on stage at the Zaphod Beeblebrox in Ottawa, March 8th 2007. Jean-Christophe said "This is our last show ever".

They played a few new songs, as well as some songs out of the second album. Their very last live song was "Jamais de mal". Despite an article published in Le Droit on March 8th, mentioning a third album is ready to go, lead singer Jean-Christophe said about one of the new song "This is a new song, well, this is as far as this song will go". Jean-Sébastien was absent on the stage. Lead Singer Jean-Christophe is rumoured to have left the band to work on a new project "Buro 40".
