“Five Minutes With” Montreal-based pop artist, Condor Matador

Condor Matador has been described as the rock n’ roll love child of Ed Sheeran, Blink -182, and just a little bit of Phil Collins. The brainchild of frontman Jeremie Legault, the project seamlessly mixes pop production techniques, fluid-rock and roll sensibilities and impeccable songwriting. The result is a unique and uplifting experience that will leave you with a song in your heart that you just can’t shake.

Favourite street in your city:

I choose St-Paul! I love walking down this street and admiring the Old Port’s architecture. It is beautiful in summer and in the winter when it’s all lit up!

Favourite park in your city:

I love René Lévesque Park. Five days a week I run 10km, and my path takes me all around Rene Levesque Park. It’s got a lot of beautiful sculptures strewn about the expansive lawn in the middle and it is a peninsula into the St Lawrence River. Absolutely breathtaking panoramic views of the river and of Old Lachine! I find beautiful views extremely motivating for running!

Favourite music venue in your city:

I have always loved MTelus. I have seen so many amazing concerts there. I think it is the perfect size, and it always sounds great.
