Profile Masse released her self-titled debut album in 1990, a French language album that made her a star in Quebec and France, with the singles “C’est Zéro”, “Billy”, “Sans t’oublier” and “Prends bien garde”. Her second album, À Contre Jour, followed in 1992. In 1993, she won the Juno Award for Best New Female Artist. She married Sylvain Brault the same year. In 1994 she released her debut English language album, Circle of One, on which she collaborated with Corey Hart (known for his early-1980s pop hits, such as “Sunglasses at Night”). Her relationship with Hart soon became romantic as well, and she divorced Brault in 1995.

With guitar playing from Triumph legend Rik Emmett and songs/backing vocals from husband Corey Hart, there’s a lot of star power behind this 1994 indie CD by Julie Masse. But big names aside, this CD can stand alone on its AOR/melodic merits. Fans of Westcoast AOR will love the smooth keys and lush production here. A must for fans of Amanda Marshall, Patty Smyth and Marilyn Martin.
