Born in Saint-Hubert, in Montérégie, David starts to play the violin at eight years old. In his teenage years, he found a passion for Québec traditional music.
This passion led David to the professional stages at the beginning of his 20s with La Part du Quêteux, a band with which he records two albums including one that was rewarded as « Best Album – Traditional » at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. Later, he joins the epic Québec trad big band La Bottine Souriante, the two international projects Maja & David and COEFF 4, and recently, he gathers with his long-time friends in De Temps Antan.
Being truly passionate about Québec traditional music, and wanting to share his knowledge about it, he carries a unique repertoire that one can hear wherever David goes.
