Although Vancouver audiences are just discovering Marc Rivest, he is no stranger to audiences further East. Clocking in an impressive 2000+ hours of performance in Calgary, he has quickly gone from an unknown to what CJSW FM refers to as "the soundtrack of Calgary". Marc's prolific performance schedule has brought many exciting things, including endorsements from Godin guitars and Kyser capos, participation in VIA Rail's Artists on Board program, a music therapy job with Miller and Miller Consulting and a contract as a children's entertainer with ArtsPlace Canmore.

In December 2014, Marc released his debut album, "Breathe". The album is a concept record centered on the idea of happiness. It aims to help dispel whatever negative thoughts and feelings the listener may be experiencing. It accomplishes this goal in a number of ways. The album's lyrics were written with calmness in mind, quoting the wisdom of Buddha, Thich Nhat Hanh, and Randy Pausch. Using truthful, kind words, the lyrics explore various methods of dispelling unhappiness; ranging from taking a deep breath to letting go to forgetting the past. The calmness of the lyrics is then combined with up-tempo harmonic reinforcement from Marc's guitar, aiming to create the illusion of a full band on one instrument. Each song on the album is in a major key to further communicate the positive message behind Marc's music. The end result is an uplifting folk sound that brings a smile to the faces of both the listener and the performer.

Marc is currently studying jazz guitar and voice at Capilano University while continuing his busy performance schedule. He performs every weekend with Granville Island Buskers, as well as various gigs throughout the month. To find out where to catch him next, please visit or follow Marc on Facebook.

Was cheerful and you could tell he enjoyed being a musician. Was disappointed that he was dependant on transit to get him to our farm, which added the expense of us getting him here by cab. Can't remember last time I wasn't responsible for getting myself to work. Other than that, he tried hard to please the group with his music and played well and worked hard.
