"Que le vent de la bonne fortune souffle dans les voiles de votre destinée et vous propulse tous vers un avenir fructueux" © Robert Salagan
My name is Robert and I’m a singer/songwriter. I’ve been writing songs since the age of 16 and I enjoy writing words and composing music to satisfy everyone’s taste (Country, Gospel, Folk & Love ballads, etc..).
My very first encounter with the music industry goes back to 1969 when I signed up with BMI of Canada now called SOCAN . Sometime after, with the help of Dominic Brunet of BMI/Socan, I was introduced to a music publisher (Michel Goodwill) who introduced me to a record producer (Henri Solinas), they had me record two of my original songs: Hey Lord and Valentine. A 45-RPM disc record was subsequently released January 1972 by Polydor records, and it received favorable airplay all across Canada.

Many years later (2004), I purchased a Yamaha AW16G Professional Audio Workstation and used it to record some of my original music. I later added my friend's original music from previous recordings onto the Audio Workstation. I managed to enhance the sound quality on some of these older original recordings and added a few extra musical and vocal tracks as well.
We enjoy singing and recording original music and hope you enjoy listening to our songs.
Below are a couple of cassette/8 track tapes titled "George", which I produced and released January 25th, 1979. The cover photo, which was taken by Jean Clément, is from a show given in Dorval in July 1978. Click on any of the tapes below and get the song listing.
