Jean-Denis Belanger AKA J.D. Slim was born in Mont-Louis in the Gaspe region. Author, composer, singer and guitarist, since over three decades, he goes wherever the music brings him. The following short summary of his career is proof of his worth. In the ‘80s, he recorded three opuses: “Rock’n Roll Graduate”, “Caribou et Blue Rock” and “Special” from which comes the single ‘Honey Bee’. This Rock firebrand sounds kind of like Memphis mythical Studio Sun, so valued by 45 RPM collectors. By then, J.D. Slim is already in full ascent: regularly on T.V., invited to the Montreal International Jazz Festival, and present everywhere on the Blues scene, very much so at the Blues Sessions on St-Denis Street, in Montreal. He even performs on the same shows as John Mayall, Mick Taylor, Jeff Healy, etc.
One of the most versatile guitarists on the Blues scene, be it acoustic Blues, electric Blues, country Blues, Cajun, as well as Folk and Rock, this artist, so well known for his unique slide guitar playing always comes out with unforgettable one-of-a-kind performances, meaningful to every listener. With J-F Paradis on drums, Carl Rufh on bass and with his guest, Henri Breton on guitar.
