As early as 1974 Guy Bélanger's musical career was heading towards traditional Southern blues. Armed with his harmonica belt, thriving music scene in Quebec City Canada.
Over the next few years he would soak up the influences of such blues greats as Muddy Waters, Koko Taylor, Big Mama Thornton, James Cotton and eastern Canada's own Dutch Mason. Collaboration with more than 60 Quebec and French artists soon followed. He also participated on 3 projects (Nuba, Wintuk and Viva Elvis!) for Cirque Du Soleil.
Guy hooked up with guitarist Claude Fradette in 2003 to record the soundtrack for the film "Gas Bar Blues" which won a Jutra for Best Film Score. Guy and Claude are the team behind the music of the Louis Bélanger film "The Timekeeper" (2009) as well as numerous television scores since then. Guy was awarded a second Jutra for Best Musical Score in Louis Bélanger's 2011 film "Route 132". Soloist this time, with the music of the film Les Mauvaises Herbes by the same filmmaker in 2016. He will also join Céline Dion's Quebec tour in the summer of 2016 as a special guest!
The first album released under his own stewardship received wide critical acclaim in 2008. This was followed by his second album "Crossroads" in 2010, "Dusty Trails" (2012) "Blues Turn" (2014), and now "Traces & Scars" in march 2017.
