Daniel Bélanger (born in Montreal, 1962) is a musician/singer/songwriter. He is considered one of the best Québécois songwriters and singers to emerge in the past 15 years. His music is eclectic, inspired by alternative rock, folk and electronic music, sometimes humorous sometimes wistful.
In middle 1983, he founded the band Humphrey Salade with Norman Lachance, Eric Maier and Jean Gauvin. Unfortunately, timing was not right and the band never recorded.
His first solo album released in 1993, Les Insomniaques s'amusent has sold 175,000 copies and won the Félix for best pop-rock album. The first single released Opium was number one in Quebec for seven weeks and won the Félix for Videoclip of the Year. This first album also earned him the ADISQ awards for Bestselling Album of the Year, Male Performer of the Year and Show of the Year in 1994. With this debut album, Bélanger had carved out his own special place in the hearts of Quebecers.
