I've always made my music totally free, because I've never really felt comfortable distributing tunes for a price. In this case, however, I’m making this pay-what-you-want. It's a re-recording of many of my songs in French, some with new lyrics or instrumental parts.
The cat on the cover is Leo. He has been having kidney problems, and he’s been in and out of the vet these days. We are doing our best to take care of him at home, but it's not easy or cheap. That's why I made this album as a kind of project for Leo. Any proceeds from this album will go toward his medical costs (vet stays, medication, IV fluids and accessories).
Any contribution would be so welcome!
The title is a mash-up of "bon courage" ("good luck" in French) and "cœur" ("heart"), because it takes a lot of heart to have courage, and Leo has the biggest heart of them all.
He is the best, most generous and sweetest cat I've ever met, and I’m so thankful for him. He's so brave despite his bad luck with health, but he's improving. It's not a one-time health problem tho. It's something he'll have to live, and something we have to do for him forever.
Thank you to Hana for being the best cat mom ever and for encouraging me to finish this album. We spent a lot of days at the coffee table with her doing her Korean-French translations and me translating my lyrics into French, and she's been so supportive of my songs and of Leo!
Thank you to anyone who has ever listened to my music. I'm so thankful to be able to make and to share songs that hopefully bring a smile to your face. I hope you enjoy these songs. Thank you so much!
