Yves has been the resident keyboard player for Canadian diva Celine Dion since 1990. He has played with Celine to packed audiences in every corner of the globe and recorded three live albums with her.
Here's what he has to say about becoming M-Powered :
Having been on the road for many years, I have seen many different music technologies come and go. I have toured extensively since 1986, and it amazes me how quickly technology is evolving and how the tools of trade continually redefine the way we work.
As for myself, I need it all! I want access to sounds. I want flexibility, reliability and creativity with the tools that I use.
Being M-Powered means for me, to be at the forefront of the new generation of live keyboard playing. This, combined with a laptop computer, gives me everything I need within a single box. The powerful and reliable M-Audio FireWire interfaces are the vital link between myself and the audience. No question about it - the future of music technology is here and it looks brighter than ever.
Thanks M-Audio for making this vision a reality!
