After five years as the singer of "Doc et les Chirurgiens", with two albums and hundreds of shows, Perreau decided to pack up his bag and leave the country to begin a life-questioning journey that would lead him straight to the mythic west of America. In this state of mind, he started to write the material for his first solo album, Western Romance. After his return, Perreau began a one-year program at the acting DOJO under the wing of Pol Pelletier, renowned lady of the theater. This union would be crucial for the singer. In November of 2002, the release of Western Romance, co-produced by Gilles Brisebois, would earn Yann Perreau many awards such as the Belgium-Quebec Rapsat-Lelièvre Award, the Miroir Prize at the Festival d’été de Québec and the Félix-Leclerc Prize at the Francofolies de Montréal.
The Western Romance show was presented all over the province of Quebec, Belgium, France, Canada and Mexico. In 2005, Yann Perreau delivered his second album, Nucléaire, produced this time by Éric Goulet. After finalizing a whole new musical atmosphere, the singer presented a brand new show called "Perreau et la Lune", a luminous mix of both his albums that resulted in the singer touring constantly during the year it was released. In the fall of 2007, Perreau won the Félix Award for Director of the Year for the show.
2008 saw the release of the CD\DVD "Perreau et la lune, live au Quat'Sous". In 2009, Yann Perreau returned with his new album "Un Serpent Sous les Fleurs", released on March 24th with Bonsound Records. Read more on Last.fm.
