BIO

Guillem Duquette is an independent Spanish musician, actor and multidisciplinary creator.

                                               

Born in Vilanova i la Geltrú (Barcelona) in 1992, he's lived all around Spain, in London, New York and, recently, Stockholm. He's currently based between Madrid and Stockholm.

He has studied classical music and violoncello (Professional Conservatory of Music), musical theatre (ESAD Málaga), text theatre (RESAD), contemporary dance and music production (SAE Stockholm). Besides that, he's been trained in singing technique by Helen Rowson, Daniel Anglés and Yasmina Azlor.

Throughout his career, he has also largely worked as both a stage and a film actor, be it in theatrical productions, short films or commercials.

In 2015, he premieres [Salita de Estar], his first original production. From that moment, he focuses on the creation of pieces of work where music, performance, literature, audiovisual production and fashion are equally combined, usually as both the producer and the performer.

His first single is released in 2017 as a collaboration with the Swedish hip-hop duo Clutterculture. Thenceforth, he works with musicians such as NIGHT (a duo constituted by the producer Gustaf Johansson and the composer Adam Sabani), Odin Kaban and others and performs in numerous festivals, events and venues (more information about upcoming and past dates can be found in TOUR).

When defining his music, Guillem states that «probably due to the many places where I've lived, [it] is influenced by jazz, the Latin American traditional cancionero and flamenco», even though in recent times pop and electronic elements have started to seep in. He writes in Spanish, English and Catalan.

In 2020, he's signed by the Spanish independent record label Fritanga Records.
