Luc Herrmann is a Montreal based guitarist and a strong voice in the next generation of great jazz musicians the city has developed a reputation for. Having heavily studied the jazz guitar tradition, all the while appreciating current composers and improvisers, Luc’s sound is a natural blend of the old and the new. And as a recent McGill graduate, he has had the opportunity to study and perform with some of the best jazz musicians Canada has to offer.
His personal project the Luc Herrmann Group is a contemporary jazz quartet for which Luc writes all the music and features Jules Payette on alto saxophone, Louis-Vincent Hamel on drums and Levi Dover on bass. The band released their debut album in October 2017 to great acclaim from the local jazz scene, being called the “revelation of the season” by Ariane Cipriani of icimusique.ca. Each member contributes greatly to the ensemble's unique sound as they vehemently perform the young guitarist's ethereally inspired music.
