Nouvelle Frontière, La
Origin: Montréal, Québec, 🇨🇦
La Nouvelle Frontière was formed in the late 1960's by the twins, Richard (guitar/vocals) and Marie-Claire (vocals) Séguin, in Montreal's eastern district of Pointe-aux-Trembles. They were joined by André Brault (bass/guitar/vocals), Denis Chenier (drums), Robert Letendre (guitar/vocals), and Normand Théroux (keyboards/vocals). They released two albums in 1970, a self-titled effort followed by "L'Hymne aux quenouilles". The music has a strong 1960's folk-rock feel to it, with only a couple of mildly experimental tracks. Although La Nouvelle Frontière performed with some high profile names such as Johnny Halliday and Little Richard, the group was largely ignored by the media due to its hippie image. The Séguins' more acoustic style also clashed with Théroux's preference for rock music, and the group disbanded in 1971.Théroux later joined progressive band Le Match, while the twins formed the folk duo (Les) Séguin, eventually pursuing successful solo careers.
