Singer-songwriter Benoit Pinette – Tire le Coyote – drew on his childhood memories, on a tormented family land and on his own experience as a father to write his first collection of poetry, Memory is a cord of kindling. Overwhelming, very authentic, the short texts speak of childhood, wounds, kindness, resilience and hope.
Gently, Benoit Pinette plunged into his childhood, which is a country in itself, to better understand the mistakes of the past and show that he wants to do better. Like fire starts when a match is thrown in dry hay and in the “little wood”, it ignites and charred old, painful memories. He puts an end to something to open up to the future, to let himself be carried away by love.
