Jean-Paul De Roover


With an innovative approach to music, Jean-Paul De Roover is much more than a one man band: he plays everything, and right before your very eyes and ears. With the assistance of live looping, as well as various effects, multiple guitars and layers of vocals, Jean-Paul will have you second guessing yourself and wondering if you really heard what you just did. One could compare Jean-Paul De Roover's music to a visual artist's venture, such as a painting on canvas. However, instead of admiring the finished product, he revels in the journey he takes you on over the course of a performance. Beginning with dead silence, his performance could lead anywhere, to full a capella harmonies, to rhythmic tribal beats, to orgiastic sonic explosions, to a noise layered world of ambient rock, or anything in between. Having recently completed a tour of Western Canada with AdverseVitalSigns (, as well as several mini-tours of the region, Jean-Paul is ready to take his music and performances to the next level. In September/October of 2007, he recorded a 4 track EP (soon to be released), and hopes to generate some excitement with these groundbreaking recordings.
