More about Jaques Labouchere:
They say great art reflects life and Jacques Labouchere’s new album is no exception – the formerly homeless bi-polar new-father-of-one’s collection of songs is firmly rooted in his own personal experience. Born in
When the relationship faded, Jacques found himself homeless - couch surfing on good days - but all the while busking for coins. Pretty much alone in a foreign country, it was his unique voice and way with a tune that proved to be his salvation: local Gothenberg musicians and artists welcomed his talent and, after making friends and making a living with his music, Jacques eventually settled down to make Sweden his home.
“Göteborg is the home I have always been looking for”, says Jacques. “Everyone you meet here is so supportive of one another.” Spurred on by his new life in a new country, a new love and a new baby daughter, Jacques has woven the ups and downs of his life into the very fabric of Bi-polar Baby Strollers. “My songs are about love, loss, loneliness, togetherness, family (daughter, sisters, friends), and the bi-polar disorder, which I have suffered or prospered (depends how you look at it) from since the age of 20”, he continues.
The organic sound of Bi-polar Baby Strollers echoes the street performances that were ultimately the making of his talent – an acoustic guitar and a strong voice – but it’s only when Jacques comes together with his band of collaborators that we clearly hear the influences behind the songs – Donovan, George Harrison, The Band, Dylan, Neil Young, Cat Stevens, Wilco, The Magic Numbers and Ryan Adams are all in there somewhere. At times joyous, at times a passionate plea, Bi-polar Baby Strollers is an honest, vulnerable and emotional mirror to Jacques’ personal, Wildean journey. Listen, engage, enjoy.
