Tampa is the brainchild of Nicholas Leblanc, guitar and vocals, Mathieu Leblanc, lead guitar and Marc-Andre Belliveau, drums. Alongside guest bass players during live performances, this trio creates original yet accessible sounds that draw from many influences. From Roots Rock, to early Post Punk to Glam Rock, these long time audiophiles, draw on what they know in order to create something new that reaches and feeds a large range of ladies and gents. With several years of hard work and play under their belts, they have many achievements to be proud of; such as three MNB nominations, for emerging artist of the year, rock recording of the year and anglophone recording of the year. They have successfully headlined several East Coast Tours. In the Summer of 2015, they were invited to perform twice daily at the Festival Interceltique de L’orient, in L’orient, France. A yearly festival hosting a million or more patrons during it’s two week run. They are committed to continuously pushing the limits of this creative collaboration, in order to produce authentic music, that is simple to take in, although skillfully layered with diverse and opposing influences.
