There must be someone...




Little information about Handful Of Snowdrops except the fact that it is a Quebec group formed in 1984 and originally composed of Christian Lefevbre, Michel Mercier, Michel Plamendon and Jean-Pierre Mercier.


A group that will remain mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the high-caliber single "Gabrielle" released in 1988.


As such alone, we had to devote this article to them.


To discover or rediscover.

Clips :


1984 ... a first title of certain quality which shows that this group has obvious potential. Potential that will reveal itself in the years that will follow ...



1984 ... a style and a sound that perfectly matches the latest trends of the moment. And yet, the group does not manage to break through more than that ...



1984 ... the group had everything he took to break through to the highest level. But they will never be able to pass the last level that could have allowed them to reach the big leagues ...



1985 ... it just missed that little extra that could have changed everything and propelled them to the height of success. Regardless, we take anyway !



1985 ... they may have flirted too much with the Dark Wave, a trend which is after all fairly marginal and which has devoted very few elected officials ...



1986 ... the first years of existence will see them change very little. Hence a certain stagnation and a somewhat tiresome obligation to play supporting roles ...



1988 ... then comes THIS title. The group's metamorphosis is evident. The sound, like the inspiration, has reached an obvious level. And what a landing !



1988 ... but that's without counting on this title ! Undoubtedly their most emblematic title and which allows them to fit One Shot into the musical legend of the 80s. HU-GE !



1988 ... a year 1988 which saw them inspired like never before. All the titles that follow are of certain quality and position the group as one of the mini-phenomena of the moment



1989 ... an interesting sequel but which will not be able to compete with the titles which preceded it. After reaching the top of the mountain, you have to come down one way or another ...



1989 ... even if the group is decelerating, what he continues to offer largely holds up. A level largely sufficient to stay afloat as they say ...



1991 ... the adventure continues for good at the start of the new decade. It is clear that the best years of the group are behind but they still believe in it. Who would blame them ...



1991 ... a group which would have really deserved a recognition much higher than it was but the fate will have decided otherwise unfortunately ...



1992 ... here they are trying to stick to the latest trends. An astonishing change in tone to say the least which will not benefit them more than that ...



2012 ... more than 20 years will elapse between this title and the previous title. The Phoenix is reborn from its ashes in a very astonishing way in this decade of 2010. And the result is to say the least bluffing ...



2015 ... an incredible rebirth which is confirmed with this new title. The group has found a totally unexpected new breath that allows them to come back to the race in a very surprising way ...



2015 ... and it continues. The group's return to the forefront is anything but an accident, that's clear. Decidedly, this decade of 2010 inspires them to the highest point ...



2018 ... nothing and no one seems to be able to stop them now. Everything becomes possible again and they intend to push the adventure as far as possible !
