Member Profile

Marc Audet

Marc Audet is an active musician in the Ottawa Valley, performing close to 150 times since 2014 in restaurants, pubs, markets, festivals and live radio. His guitar/vocal act is an acoustic presentation of older and contemporary folk, rock and pop songs (in some cases with liberal re-interpretation), and his repertoire includes original songs written about life experiences. A wide range of songs are included in set lists suited for quiet and dynamic settings.

Central to the musical act is a Taylor 522E Grand Symphony acoustic guitar that projects the clarity and warmth of a very fine instrument. Musical styling is aided by guitar looping (electro-harmonix 2880) and harmonica solos.

From influences such as John Prine, Dave Gunning, David Francey and Neil Young, among other artists, Marc’s songwriting speaks to a range of life experiences; love, loss, decisions, struggle. About 20 songs have been written and more are on the way. Efforts are underway to record an album in 2018. Marc takes pride in being a member of SOCAN, the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada, as well as Folk Music Ontario.
