Jake's wide variety of musical and cultural experiences, from his French-Canadian heritage to his travels in Asia, the Caribbean and Latin America are evident in his lively performances making him recognizable as one of Manitoba's finest family performers. Whether he is performing in English or in French, Jake's multi-cultural experiences bring an added depth to his exceptional musicianship and winning performance style. He's met a monkey, climbed Guatemala's most active volcano - twice! - and swam in the sea with a rainbow of fish. Now Jake's adventures in Mexico, Guatemala, Belize and Thailand have blossomed into Walking in the Sun, a sunny collection of catchy sing-a-long tunes for the whole family. This magical recording offers many musical styles including calypso, reggae and Cajun. 'Walking in the sun is a fine album from an artist who deserves to be better known!' John Hoffman - Today's Parent 'Walking in the Sun - This new release might climb to the top of your list very quickly. It has a nice mix of rhythms and a message that honors Mother Earth' Kathy O'Connell - MetroKids, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 'Walking in the Sun...is a delightful album full of upbeat songs...Chénier has a gentle voice and a quick easy connection with young listeners.'
