The Human

I quickly got hooked on cultural journalism. Already a fan of the reviews of records that could be read in the Voir, the ICI, the Hour, La Presse reading Alain Brunet, Laurent Saulnier and other connoisseurs such as Claude Rajotte (on TV and radio), I quickly joined the Mot-Dit team. I published my first article in the pages of the Cégep Édouard-Montpetit student newspaper in December 1990. I also hosted and programmed a radio show there, Bactérie Blues, where I enjoyed sharing my old and recent favorites. .

I then joined the emoRAGEi team, led by Jeff Rioux (of the label Where Are My Records and the store Le Vacarme) where I immersed myself in the world of indie rock and folk in depth, writing more than 1000 reviews of records and concerts, between 1999 and 2014.

Several sites have hosted my writings over the years, including that of Avenue du Mont-Royal (2003-2007), (which I directed from 2010 to 2014), before creating my own: RREVERB. It was the start of a fabulous adventure of a personal blog that has become the meeting place for more than 35,000 unique monthly visitors, appreciating the writings of my 30 collaborators scattered in 8 countries!

In 2013, I published a collection in two volumes. "Perles rares et grands crus de la musique" (volume 1 from 1950 to 1999 and volume 2 from 2000 to 2012) brought together my list of the best albums by year, covering all genres of music and highlighting my record reviews. It was talked about on Radio-Canada radio, and on specialized sites such as Les Méconnus and La Bible Urbaine.

"Nothing stops his greedy ear. On the contrary, he begs for more! "

My professional career then led me to manage the digital radios of iHeartRadio in Canada, then ICI Musique, Radio-Canada's music radio station, where I contributed to increasing the listening time of Canadian music, in all musical styles.


I then had the privilege of working on a unique project: that of setting up a streaming platform! QUB musique was an ambitious but noble project. Its mission was to promote Quebec music. More than1000 playlists that I created there are still there, as well as My favorites in recent years. More recently, I have collaborated with jazz specialists SortiesJAZZnights, with articles and playlists.

The concerts, I have always loved! Thanks to my collaborations with the various venues and producers, and the visibility that my articles gave them, I have covered every year since the early 2000s the Montreal International Jazz Festival, the FrancoFolies, Osheaga, POP Montreal, Les Nuits d'Afrique, Montréal en lumière, Le Mundial, MUZ, Le Festif! of Baie-St-Paul and many others, until the FrancoFolies of La Rochelle, in 2010.

I've published more than 6000 reviews of records and concerts, taken thousands of photos, attended many festivals... and never got tired of it, quite the contrary!
