François Couture is a multidisciplinary musician who stands out because of his great versatility and solid experience in the field. Trained as a guitarist and composer, François also has many other skills. He is a multi-instrumentalist, arranger, orchestrator, sound designer, producer and musical director. Over the course of his busy career, he has received numerous commissions for major events, including the Quebec Winter Carnival, the Fête de la Ville de Quebec, the Montreal High Lights Festival and the Just for Laughs Festival. He has also won prizes and honours around the world and has been a member of several juries, such as those for Canada Council for the Arts, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Canadian Folk Music Awards and the Juno Awards. An accomplished artist, François produces, records, mixes and masters albums, short films and soundtracks for shows, and provides musical direction for major events in Quebec and abroad. His discography features rich and daring works that highlight Canada’s musical heritage. They are in fact intense collaborations with Aboriginal musicians, Inuit throat singers, string quartets, classical orchestras and choirs, along with fiddlers, folk artists and step dancers. Always with the aim of satisfying his love of discovery, François continues to develop his art and his experience of traditional, Aboriginal, classical, jazz and electronic music by working with artists from home and abroad.
