Steve Bilodeau

Just press record and see what happens. Over the past few years, it’s a motto that has come to embody the musical identity of Steve Bilodeau, a Boston-based jazz guitarist who has been performing, recording, and teaching music for over 10 years. Although he began as a rock and blues guitarist, Bilodeau went on to study jazz performance at prestigious institutions such as McGill University and the New England Conservatory of Music, obtaining a Master’s degree in the process. During this time, Bilodeau has studied with some of the greatest living jazz musicians – including Billy Hart, Fred Hersch, Miguel Zenon, and Jason Moran – and has attended renowned music programs such as the Betty Carter Jazz Ahead program and the Banff International Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music. Ultimately, these experiences have taught Bilodeau to embrace the improvisational ‘just press record’ approach to creating music, as it exposes the imperfections of even the most talented musicians. It is only through improvisation that a musician can truly push themselves to the limit, and the ensuing struggle and mistakes brings one closer to genuine musical expression. And that’s exactly what Bilodeau wants his listeners to hear when they listen to his albums or watch him perform live – genuine expression.
