Kevin Laliberte offers Elation, an album of music you're guaranteed to enjoy over and over again. From the first play you'll be drawn in by the seductive, infectious rhythms, and haunted long afterwards by melodies you just can't forget. The mood is upbeat, sometimes bittersweet, always engaging.
Kevin Laliberte is a Canadian guitarist and composer with a knack for blending the sounds of the flamenco guitar with a jazz improvisational approach and a pop melodic sensibility.
He began playing as a young child, and explored a number of different sounds and styles over the years. A growing interest in flamenco drove him to purchase his first flamenco guitar in 1995, beginning a love affair that continues to flourish.
In 1999, he was asked by Virgin recording artist Jesse Cook to join his touring band. Touring with Jesse has taken Kevin to many parts of the world, performing with the likes of the Chieftains (in Japan and Canada), Charlotte Church (TV special filmed in Wales, appearance on The Tonight Show) and Chinese recording artist Dadawa.
