Yves Léveillé

Origin: Quebec, Canada

Main instrument: Piano

Genre: Jazz

Since moving to Montréal in the early 1980s, Yves Léveillé has been following a most interesting career path. As a sideman, he served faithfully for singers Dorothée Berryman and Francine Poitras. As the leader of his own ensemble, he put together a stellar cast of musicians including sax man Frank Lozano. After making his mark in La Belle Province, Léveillé took his show on the road, travelling across Canada as well as visiting Paris, Vienna and New York. In 1999, the musician recorded his first album Signal commun, on the nascent Effendi label. Follow-ups Zone indigène (2001), Quantique (2003) and Soho (2006) confirmed Léveillé's compositional skills.
