Known primarily for his discovery of young new talents and for helping them progress towards their goals, producer and mixer Luc Tellier has also worked with well-established artists such as Simple Plan, Marie-Mai, Jeffrey Piton, The New Cities. His unique talent for mixing has been called on by bands across the world. To this day, he has mixed singles and albums for bands from Canada, the United States, France, England, Sweden, Germany, Romania, Italy, India, Istanbul, Australia, Turkey, Hong-Kong, Spain, Slovenia and many other countries. His list of clients includes major labels such as Universal Music, Sony Music, Warner Music, EMI Music.
Luc started playing music at eight years old and quickly learned to play any instrument he could lay his hands on. His passion for music kept him busy for a countless number of hours spent playing the drums, bass, guitar, piano as well as singing. At the age of fifteen, his interest in the magic behind the music began to grow as he started studying the physics of sound and everything pertaining to it. He therefore rapidly became a recording geek through his book readings, microphone testing, and by experimenting new recording techniques. He developed his craft mainly by producing, recording and mixing albums for the bands he played in. He generated his own sound signature and other local bands started approaching him for his special touch.
Meanwhile, he was playing drums and performing back vocals in a rock band called DelsonDrive. The band became well known in Quebec and started touring across Canada and playing in events such as the Vans Warped Tour and Taste of Chaos. DelsonDrive had the opportunity to open for international artist such as 30 Seconds to Mars, The Used, Soasin and Hedley. One thing leading to another, after an enriching journey of six years, the band members finally parted ways and Luc decided to focus on his own career as a producer and mixer.
In 2010, Luc was invited by his mentor, David Bendeth (Paramore, Breaking Benjamin, Papa Roach, All Time Low) to his House of Loud studio located in New Jersey. Luc was given the opportunity to spend some time with David and to learn quite a few tricks. To this day, a lot of Luc’s work has been heard on major radio stations as well as Much Music, MTV and VH1. In the past two years, several of the bands he produced and mixed have been featured on Kings of A&R which has been recognized as a music industry leader by UK’s Financial Times, CNN, Billboard Magazine, Spin Magazine and the Rolling Stone Magazine. Until now, Luc’s career has seen many highlights over a short period of time and this is only the beginning as he continues his work with more bands from around the world.
In 2011, Simple Plan’s lead guitarist Jeff Stinco gave a great opportunity to Luc by asking him to make a remix of their hit song “Jet Lag”. A few months later, Luc was asked by Marie-Mai to mix a new version of her single “Je Cours” to be released in France on Warmer Music France. The year 2012 was filled with mixing projects from all over the world including artists from Columbia, Sweden, Croatia, United Kingdom, Romania, United States, France and many more.
