If you don’t remember the Canadian soul-goodness that is Remy Shand’s “Take a Message,” this is what we’re here for.
We don’t blame you either, as it came out 11 years ago in 2002! Back then, I was in grade 6, American Idol was just starting up, and people still hugely bought singles on CD, the latter of which led Remy to major success.
His debut album “The Way I Feel” went Platinum in Canada, and earned him a Juno Award and four Grammy nominations that year. With all this momentum behind him, he was quickly slated to return with a sophomore album…But then he disappeared.
For years, there was no news of Remy’s music – or even his whereabouts – which left fans forgetting about that knitcapped man from Manitoba – Until recently.
Two weeks ago, Remy put up a YouTube channel containing some new and unreleased songs. Listening to them, I can assure you that his vocals are deeper, yet still as smooth and soulful as ever. So check it out.
But to us here at the Nostalgia Blog, he will always be taking messages in our hearts.
