DI AUGER is the solo artist, C. Lefort, (Toronto, Canada), that has created a movement of aggressive but melodic music that encompasses several genres yet, has established itself in a self-created foundation called “Neo Industrial Gothic Rock”.
For the past several years DI AUGER has cultivated and developed his persona as an independent artist, the result of which is a discography consisting of six full length albums, over six EP’s, as well as various remixes, singles and collaborations.
His newest release, (AUG 02/21) UNDER THE SKIN OF THE WORLD is both original in concept and execution and represents his first collaboration with Producer and contributor Sean Beesley of Live Evil Productions who states, “Di Auger has been a long standing pillar in independent music in Canada. But also an engine driving its growth. The Alter Ego / Persona is as fascinating in depth and content, as his discography. When I received
the demos for this album, I knew immediately this was huge, and I wasn’t wrong! Further the content
was so directly tied to ongoing current events that it created a timeline, and we knew we were
revisiting the 70-80 concept album phenomenon. This is without a doubt the most original, diverse,
genre shattering, album I have ever heard. It is truly the perfect place to start a journey back to art of
album listening! It was a huge blessing to be involved.”
This new work is a concept album that deals with many of the geopolitical, social, environmental and
technological issues that directly affect and reflect the populations of the world today and into the
foreseeable future as we repeat history. It’s a true 24 track concept album experience. While it must be
listened to as a whole to fully appreciate, numerous tracks will be focused on as powerful and diverse
stand alone singles.
DI AUGER, a formerly educated pianist and percussionist also hosts and DJ’s events in the city
Toronto under his banner “RAGE”, and has worked with many of leading players in that field. He
produces DI AUGER’S RAGECAST, a monthly podcast that brings new music and old favourites and
