Biography

Greetings everyone.

Bernard here on the line, live from Montreal.

While I'm pretty new to home-recording, I've been playing acoustic guitar for over 40 years, mainly on my good old classical Ovation although I now have an old Fender cutaway and a Sigma tuned in DADGAD and also went electric a couple years back getting a Godin Jazz Multiac, a GR33 guitar-synth. At some point I sold some gear to buy a Mac and what I needed to make a workable small home studio.

Talking of work - and music - when I'm not lost in learning how to use Logic and all the rest or in practicing guitar and composing, I'm assisting a musical therapist on a regular basis since some years, while in the summer I do renovation and some decorative arts - mosaic, faux-finish, etc - and put money aside so I can take it easy in winter and concentrate on music. I play with friends every now and then. A couple of us meet every other week. Then there's the odd gig. In the long run, I'd love to publish some music and also play live more - I have a lot of solo guitar pieces going in all kind of directions and enjoy making arrangements too with the guitar-synth and softwares. I'll post some of that here by and by, for the joy of sharing, rough as it may be.

As for my music's style, good question. From very early on, I started to fool around with the chords I'd learn and search for my own color. Let's say it incorporates elements of classical, folk and jazz music, with a pinch of. . .

My all-time favorites ? Well, Bach, James Taylor, Bobby Mcferrin, Al Jarreau. Keith Jarrett and Lyle Mays. Pat Metheny and Nando Lauria. The Yellow Jackets. Michael Brecker and Ian Garbarek. David Darling and Lama Gyurme. To name but a few.

In any case, great to be here
and looking forward
to join the
sharing.
