Mathieu Soucy

Born:

Mathieu Soucy is “an exciting young guitarist” (Laila Biali, Saturday Night Jazz) and composer living in Montréal. His first LP Recollecting (Inner-Bop Records, self-released) features brilliant voices of the new generation of Canadian jazz and is set for release in the Fall of 2022. JUNO-winning Caity Gyorgy makes a guest appearance on two tracks as a vocalist and lyricist. The album is a recollective act, i.e. it speaks the same language as the bop pioneers, but it does so with an accent; that of a 27-year old Canadian artist whose inmost voice has called for a spiritful recollection of its roots. The album celebrates the ever-futural propension of the bop language to reinvent itself through colourful variations.
