Antoine Berthiaume

Artist of the Month | July 2014

 

I have been using K&K for a few years now on my acoustic Beauregard as well as on my banjo and currently on a gypsie guitar on Cirque du Soleil’s latest show Kurios. K&K pretty much sets the standards. They are amazing for home recording as well as live situations. No other pickups give me the ability to control so many aspects of my sound.

Antoine is a founding member of the western-folk group Rodéoscopique, and he is also a jazz fan. He has been seen performing in Montréal with Pierre Tanguay and Michel Donato, with whom he has recorded his first jazz foray for Ambiances Magnétiques Jazz. He also works regularly with Philippe Lauzier, Pierre-Yves Martel, and many others.

With grants from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and the Canada Council for the Arts, Antoine has furthered his skills in the United States and Europe. Photographer Ralph Gibson recently included him in his review of 81 avant-garde guitarists, which has yielded a book and an exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas.
