Biography

Jonah Richard Guimond was 11 years old when he found a guitar in his parents' closet and unwittingly became P'tit Belliveau. Since then, the singer-songwriter from the small francophone community of Baie Sainte-Marie, Nova Scotia, has tackled music with never ending candor and an unconventional spirit.

In 2017 and 2018 P'tit Belliveau released three quirky, electronic-inspired country/bluegrass EPs. In 2019, he was selected as one of three Francouvertes finalists, cementing his reputation in the public eye as a playful, skillful musician. The next year, with the help of producer Emmanuel Éthier, he released Greatest Hits Vol.1, an undeniably rich debut album that earned him Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the GAMIQ awards and Best Album Production at the ADISQ Gala.

In 2021, the multi-instrumentalist offered a tribute EP to the late Baptiste Comeau. Now, with the confidence that comes with experience, P'tit Belliveau unveuled his sophomore album Un homme et son piano, on April 1st 2022 via Bonsound. Interacting with his fans via live streaming platforms such as Twitch, where he also pursues beatmaking, the artist continues to combine his love for rustic music and passion for electronic beats with a natural ease that never ceases to amaze.

Press Quotes

A big concentrate of happiness and joy... It's cool, smart and polished.

Tatiana Polevoy

P'tit Belliveau is creating a unique and totally explosive musical genre [...] It's joyful, geniously crazy and, to say the least, unavoidable.

François Marchesseault

You won't always know what to expect on Un homme et son piano, but you're guaranteed a damn good time.

CBC

Just like his hybrid French and English lyrics, P'tit Belliveau's music exists in the margins of two worlds: not totally absurd, but never really serious either, and this is what makes it so refreshing.

Exclaim!

Si on le savait déjà extraordinaire compositeur, l’artiste acadien vient de nouveau faire ses preuves avec le génial Un homme et son piano.
