David Bussières

Born on a beautiful winter day of 1977 (the year of the rain), David was leading a simple and happy life until his 15th birthday, when someone offered him a guitar. An ecstatic feeling and an ontological need to express himself through music took him over. 11 years later he walked out of the music school, a masters degree in classical guitar in hand, and wrote the music of La Spirale de l’Escargot. Besides this creative activity, David teaches guitar at the Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf, lends his talents as a pop, classical and jazz guitarist to composers of music for advertisements and television shows, accompanies the vocal gymnastics of many a female singer in concert halls, and often plays in less official settings, like cocktails and soirées in restaurants.

On a more serious note, David is Ipso Facto’s artistic director. He takes the final decisions regarding artistic and marketing choices pertaining to the group. Many years ago, he formed Ipso Facto with Chantal Bergeron and now more than ever he devotes himself to reaching the goals set by the group. A strong guitarist, he also takes care of writing music for Ipso Facto.
