Who is Damien Robitaille?

Damien Robitaille is a Franco-Ontarian musician from the village of Lafontaine, Ontario, which is located in the Georgian Bay area, two hours north-west of Toronto.

Robitaille started his music career at a young age, when he started playing the piano when he was eight years old, and later in his childhood he learned to play such instruments as the trumpet, guitar and violin. Later on, Robitaille attended Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo to study classical music. While at Laurier, he was a member of the rock band The Mezameeze. Halfway through his university career he was a finalist in Ontario Pop, a Franco-Ontarian competition, in which he won a scholarship to attend a one year program at "L'Ecole Nationale de la Chanson" in Granby, Quebec. In 2004, Robitaille, a young poetic musician, played at the Festival de la chanson de Granby in Granby, Quebec in which he was a finalist. This festival, as well as the Francouvertes festival in Montreal, Quebec where he won first prize, helped Robitaille become a successful musician in Quebec. Robitaille performs the vocals, guitar and piano for all of his songs.
