B.U bio (english and french)
With more than a thousand shows in the bag, B.U has a story to tell.
Here is one of Montreal’s most anticipated and most promissing artist. Since the beginning of his journey, B.U’s broad musical direction has demonstrated his love for many genres of music. The name B.U stands for be you or be your self, wich the artist does in his music.
Very few entertainers control a band and a crowd the way B.U does.
Promoters and bookers always feel secure when the experienced artist hits the stage because the list of shows and collaborations doesn’t lie. From the Montreal International Jazz festival, The Montreal Reggaefest, Frances XXL Performance festival, The Olympic Stadium to the Metropolis and The Spectrum with Stars like Beenie Man, Akon, Elephant Man, The Roots, Ludacris, Chingy, Mobb Deep, Sizzla, T.O.K, Cappleton,BeatNuts, I AM, Booba, 113, Posse, Pit Bacardie, La Brigade, JadaKiss and so many more; B.U hasn’t slept for years and it shows in concert as well as in studio.
Multitalented, B.U is the man you call to host your party. He is the voice you sometimes hear on tv singing or voicing jingles. He is a song writer in genres of music like pop, pop-rock, funk, Jazz, hiphop, rnb and soul. He is also, without a doubt, one of the best live performers in Canada.
The Montreal based artist has been there and done that from making music with FlipModeSquad’s Rah Digga, with T.O.K and I Am’s Freeman to writing the words for Gage’s title album song called Changer le monde and the first french song ever sang by Akon and Paméla Lajoie called Le Sang des innocents. It is also a common thing for B.U to find spots for his music on the big screen in movies like Hank and Mike or Y’en aura pas d’facile, a movie soundtrack written by B.U for Maco with high commercial radio airplay on CKOI and NRJ. B.U singed and voiced an impressive amount of tv commercials such as the Molson Dry A.P.P. and Cold Shots tv commercials; the list goes on and on with advertisers such as Rogers, Bell Canada, Diane 35, Vibe GM, Nestlé, Galaxy, Coke, and many more.
B.U has been working many angles of the music scene and has been very patient to gain experience and credibilty before dropping an album. He is now back in the spotlite with the will to take it to the next level.
