Jacques Pellarin is one of the really great artists we work with at The SongHunters. His music is regularly played on NPR's "Morning Edition". We've chosen his classicly French-sounding song "Just In Time" (co-written with his daughter Maryon, who also plays ukulele on the song) for this week's Synch Song showcase. Jacques PellarinThis song is really great, well recorded and exceptionally arranged. We can easily hear (and see) this song in vintage Woody Allen-type films set in Paris or a French-Canadian indie film, or anything similar - hey, what about that little cafe scene in some video game? Yep.

My suggestion to you? Sit back with your cafe au lait in hand, put your feet up, play this song (or any other songs of Jacques'), close your eyes and you'll swear you are in Paris (even if you're in Manhattan).

Here is Jacques' Bio:

For over 27 years, virtuoso accordionist Jacques Pellarin has brought the sounds of the French countryside to all corners of the globe. With 8 albums and multiple international tours, he has shared his musette-inspired accordion compositions with a world-wide audience.

Jacques’ professional career began as part of the internationally acclaimed Baikal Duo and after 18 years of classical performances, Jacques formed a quartet and an acoustic trio in order to pursue a freer interpretation of jazz and world music.

In 2011, the Jacques Pellarin Quartet released the critically-acclaimed album "Sup Dude" and today, Jacques continues to compose, perform, and tour — focusing now on sharing his music with a larger global audience through strategic placements and song licensing deals.

"This book had a direct impact on my career. From the multiple books that I have read on building a career in the music industry, this book is the most eye opening, informative, and useful of them all. It is akin to taking the brains and experience of fifty music industry vets and inserting them directly into your head."  –Adam A. Johnson
