Alex Goupil insists he’s gotten over you with his new single I Swear — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
A non-traditional love song that navigates the emotional journey that accompanies letting go of someone, the song provides a hopeful message embedded throughout, all while complementing the warmth of the Ottawa artist’s instrumentation. With distinctive guitar work lending a tone to the musical composition that blends seamlessly with the lyrical aesthetic, Goupil not only explores the tribulations of relationships — but also the personal freedoms that come with taking a leap of faith.
To achieve his signature sound, Goupil enlisted the help of trusted collaborators. Among them is recording engineer Steve Foley out of Audio Valley in Ottawa, where the single was recorded. The mixing and mastering were done in London, England, by a producer with an ear for enhancing Goupil’s tone, Mat Leppanen.
Goupil started like countless artists that came before, jamming in his parents’ garage. While those around him became less interested in music, Goupil would double down on his talents and move to the U.K. to further hone his craft, recording six song and playing countless shows before moving back to Canada and take his career to the next level.
