performed by Jean-Paul De Roover and Shannon Lepere.

After getting married in June, happy newlyweds Jean-Paul De Roover and Shannon Lepere took an afternoon to record an acoustic version of De Roover’s song “Hope,” from his 2013 album Complexity in Simplicity. Apple Wagon Films was there to capture the magic live in their living room and we’d like to share it with our readers.

Last year, our readers voted De Roover as the best solo artist, and Complexity in Simplicity as the best album. Lepere was voted best photographer. Is this video the start of more collaborative work between two of Thunder Bay’s favourite artists? We can only hope!
