MarieVeronique Bourque

Marie-Véronique (MV) Bourque, an extremely talented artist from Saskatchewan, is not afraid to think and act outside the box. Her original songs and unique interpretations of jazz standards (by flute and voice) pair beautifully with her hard-to- define music genre. Marie-Véronique is a nominee for the 2021 Trille Or Awards Gala, which will take place May 29 at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa. In 2019, MV was brought to Oxford (UK) for a recording session on Will Cox’s debut album, “A Darkling Shore”. The session also included a number of other accomplished artists including Orlando Harrison (Alabama 3) and Lily Dior. This invitation came about after MV’s participation in Pro7ect – a songwriters’ and producers’ retreat in Brighton, UK. In 2018, Marie-Véronique released her debut album, ‘Une porte s’ouvre’. The album was voted #5 at the 2018 Saskatchewan Music Awards and landed on the !Earshot National Jazz Charts. The song ‘Excusez-moi’, a co-write with Michelle Gregoire, was a semi-finalist at the Canadian Songwriting Competition and at the Unsigned Only International Music Competition. Marie-Véronique is a member of the Regina Symphony Orchestra. She is also part of the Quarter Tones Flute Ensemble and they released an album, “Combine” in 2015. MV has toured throughout Switzerland, France, as well as in Québec, Manitoba, Alberta and Saskatchewan

The bands are super tight and the sound is great. It sounds amazing. Vocals are warm and close and emotive and sexy!!! There is a real retro, 1970's, cool vibe going on. Velvet tuxedos and dry martini... Lisa Fitzgibbon, Producer, Pro7ect Creative Director, United Kingdom

Gostei muito do seu trabalho, e como é contagiante ficar ouvindo sua música. Você tem um talento incrível e por isso a perfeição dessa música. Harmonia musical está perfeita, o Jazz é um estilo musical que só cresce no mundo todo e você representa perfeitamente bem esse estilo musical. Celso Teixeira, Ceo. Setemusic, Brasil

About Rues désertes: I really enjoyed this track! You play the flute beautifully, and the whole track was very tasteful and musical[...] I will share with anyone who is interested in jazz, and in particular, young jazz musicians, who I think would be very influenced and inspired by your work! Noel Chambers, Mentor, United Kingdom

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
