Stéphane Carreau

Origin: Quebec, Canada

Main instrument: Acoustic guitar/electric guitar

Genres: Latin, World

One half of acclaimed Montréal bossa nova duo Bet.e & Stef, singer-songwriter Stéphane Carreau studied guitar in Paris, under none other than Christiane Legrand - sister of legendary French composer Michel. Later in Montréal, he formed internationally renowned duo Bet.e & Stef. The pair released two platinum-selling albums of Latin classics, with 1997's Jazz/Bossa Nova and 2002's Day by Day. After parting ways with Bet.e, Carreau worked as a sound engineer in the home studio he built, before deciding to make a bold step and write - as well as sing - his own songs. In 2010, he released In from the Cold, a long awaited solo début, with the help of drummer Tony Albino (Pierre Lapointe), percussionist Sacha Daoud (Cirque du Soleil, Paulo Ramos) and ex-Bootsauce bassist Al Baculis.
