Interview With Xavier Leduc

Have you always been interested in music? What is your story and how did you start making music?
I’ve been interested in music ever since I was a little kid. I started listening to my parents’ music. I liked Frank Zappa and The Eagles the best. I also really liked Michael Jackson’s “Dangerous” album. I really loved the guitar parts Slash did on the album and really wanted to learn guitar after hearing that. My mom got me a toy electric guitar and started me on piano lessons when I was 8. At 13 years of age I bought a real electric guitar with my own money and started lessons. I ended up studying Arts Administration at Bishop’s University in Sherbrooke (QC) in Canada still and furthered my music knowledge a lot and learned business too. I started producing music at home in 2017 and here I am now!
