In a testament to his growing prominence, he was honored with the title of iHeart Radio Future Star in February 2020.

Born to an American mother and Salvadoran father, he proudly represents his French-speaking Quebec heritage while expressing his artistry in the English language. He’s already made a mark with his original song “Not Alone” for the film “The tuque race,” a production distributed in over 200 countries. His duet with Corneille on the song “I will be there” is featured on the French-language soundtrack of the same film.
His most recent contribution to a film soundtrack has garnered even more attention, as two of his compositions are featured on the soundtrack of the film “The Legend of the Butterfly/Butterfly Tale,” alongside performances by renowned artists like Patrice Michaud, Coeur de Pirate, La Zarra, Johnny Orlando, and Shawn Mendes. The film is set to hit Canadian theaters on October 13 and later in the United States. Continuing his prolific journey, he has also contributed three songs to Jeanick Fournier’s latest album.
