Festival Place...the place for Pop/Rock.
Born in Mont-Laurier, Quebec to a family of country musicians, Bobby Bazini was naturally encouraged during his childhood to sing and play guitar. Pushed by a radio station DJ in his hometown, Bazini's soulful voice soon impressed major players in the music industry, landing him a record deal, invitations to perform at festivals worldwide and on the set of prestigious French music television show Taratata. His talent is self-evident to anyone who's heard the Montreal-based performer sing, and is part of the reason his debut album Better In Time went platinum and earned him a pair of JUNO nominations for "Pop Album of the Year" and "Best New Artist". His second album Where I Belong was also a resounding success, selling upwards of 125 000 copies in less than 12 months, making it the best-selling Canadian album of 2014.
