Music production[edit]

Bridge Road Entertainment[edit]

Bourgeois, along with his wife Anna, is the co-owner of Bridge Road Entertainment, an entertainment production and development company based in Albany, New York. Bridge Road Entertainment's current artist roster includes sibling blues-rock musicians Jocelyn and Chris Arndt and country artist Vinny Michaels. Bourgeois acts as manager and producer.[8]

Jocelyn and Chris Arndt[edit]

Since he began working with Jocelyn and Chris in 2013, they have recorded and produced a studio EP (Strangers in Fairyland), two full-length albums (Edges and Go), and a live LP (30,000 Miles). [9] [10] A musician himself, Bourgeois also contributed drumming, percussion, and synthesizer programming to these releases.

In May 2017, Jocelyn and Chris Arndt released Go, a full-length record produced and recorded by Bourgeois at White Lake Music & Post in Albany, New York.

The album includes single "Footprints on the Moon," which was Billboard's 5th most added Adult Album Alternative track in the nation the week of its release to radio, and "Red Stops Traffic," which debuted on the Billboard AAA Top 40 Indicator Chart at No. 37 in December 2017.[11][12] "Red Stops Traffic" remained in the Top 40 for six weeks total, peaking at No. 35.[13] [14][15][16]

The first month of its release, Go appeared at No. 2 on the Relix National Jamband Top 30 Chart. It remained in the No. 2 position through July, dropping to No. 9 in August and No. 10 in September.[17][18][19][20][21] The album fell off the chart in October 2017, reappearing at No. 17 in November.[22][23]

Jocelyn and Chris are due to release a new full-length album produced by Bourgeois on February 22, 2019. Titled The Fun in the Fight, it features eleven original tracks and special guest players including Danny Louis of Gov't Mule, Cory Wong of Vulfpeck, and Beau Sasser of Kung Fu.[16]

Vinny Michaels[edit]

Country artist Vinny Michaels signed with Bourgeois under Bridge Road Entertainment in 2018. Since then, he has debuted one single titled "Crazy," with plans to release his first full-length album in the spring. [24]

Past artists[edit]

Bridge Road Entertainment previously managed and developed country singer-songwriter Chelsea Cavanaugh, whose debut LP Simply was released in 2013.[25]

White Lake Music and Post[edit]

In 2010, Bourgeois and his wife Anna opened White Lake Music & Post, a recording and post-production facility located in Schenectady. The facility is named after White Lake in the Adirondack Mountains, where the Bourgeois family has had a camp for three generations. [26]

Personal life[edit]

Bourgeois is originally from Boonville, New York. A self-proclaimed "music geek," he played percussion in a variety of groups and ensembles throughout elementary and high school. He credits much of his current success to his parents' support for his early decision to pursue a career in the arts:

At age twenty, Bourgeois moved to Albany in pursuit of his musical interests, performing and recording in multiple area bands and studying percussion and electronic music at the University at Albany. He soon began to gain studio experience as well, starting with recording and composition for singer-songwriters and commercial advertising and progressing to projects that cemented his role as a music producer.[27]
