Marc-André Pépin was born in Beauce, Quebec, Canada. He began playing piano at the age of 8 and has been composing ever since. He received a Bachelor’s degree in music from Université de Montréal.
In 2008, he released “Songs Without Words”, his first CD, a collection of twelve original compositions. The album was played on radio stations across Canada and the world. At the end of 2010, he launched a second CD entitled « Rendez-vous ». This album received a nomination in the « Best instrumental album of the year » category at the ADISQ gala 2011. ADISQ is the Quebec province musical industry awards. In fall 2013, he released his third album « Variable Skies ».
His influences stem mainly from classical and movie music. His music is easy listening without being facile. We can thoroughly enjoy it as a background companion, or appreciate its rich flavour and subtleties if we wish to focus singularly on the music. The classical influence of the tight, beautifully-crafted composition is undeniable. The pleasure of listening to it only increases with time, like a bottle from a superb vintage!
