Meet André Bisson. . .
blues, R & b, soul, funk, swing and even a little gospel...
For over a decade André Bisson has been performing his unique blend of R&B and Soul Blues throughout Canada, U.S.A., and Europe. After graduating from the Applied Music Program at Mohawk College in Hamilton, Bisson went on to record, compose, and arrange six albums. The success of these award-winning albums has led to several international tours, packed houses, sold- out concerts, and the chance to open for esteemed artists such as Colin James, Jimmie Vaughan, Robben Ford and Steven Page.
A long list of industry awards include: Male Vocalist of the Year, Hamilton Blues Music Awards, 2015; Overseas Artist of the Year nominee from the British Blues Awards and New Artist of the Year at the 2016 Maple Blues Awards. André and his band recently won the Road to Memphis Competition to compete at the 2017 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee.
This multi-talented and multitasking vocalist, composer, songwriter, bandleader and guitarist is quickly proving himself to be a force to be reckoned with on the Canadian blues and roots scene. With the influences of Motown, Stax, blues, soul, big band, and gospel music, André has composed a repertoire of blues songs that reach orchestrations of up to 20 pieces. His 2015 release Left With The Blues further cemented his position as one of the genre’s most talented and remarkable artists. The album was released to rave reviews and extensive radio airplay around the world and reached #1 on the Stingray blues charts.
