BIO

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

                                               

He was born in Vilanova i la Geltrú (Barcelona) in 1992, and after that he's lived all around Spain and in London, New York and, recently, Stockholm. He's currently based in Madrid, even though he spends periods of time in Stockholm, where he continues to work with some habitual musicians, composers and producers.

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). On top of 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 scree actor, be it in theatrical productions, short films and 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 is equally combined. He's usually in charge of all those tasks.

His first single is released in 2017 as a collaboration with the Swedish hip-hop duo Clutterculture (with who he'll work again). 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.

Nowadays, he's preparing the release of new songs as an independent artist, he continues to collaborate with other musicians and he's looking for the support of a publishing company/record label.
