The word Mathieu Lippé follows its path over time and is colored by the people it crosses as if they were countries. A native of the Lower St. Lawrence, this winner of the Festival de la Chanson de Granby in 2011, deconstructs and reconstructs reality through his songs and tales punctuated with slam poetry. With a Bachelor's degree in Literature from the Université de Sherbrooke, Mathieu Lippé has been performing for over 15 years in many countries including France, Belgium, Switzerland, Romania, Poland, Lithuania, Lebanon, and India. However, his artistic career really goes back to his teenage years when he participated in many artistic events, including the Saint-Jean de Luz Theatre Festival in France. It was in Sherbrooke in 2001, that he gave his first show combining tales, poetry, and songs, announcing the arrival of a major artist in the Quebec cultural landscape.
Between 2001 and 2010, the inspiring singer traveled the French-speaking world with his tales. He then created a unique and singular concept mixing storytelling and jazz. From then on, he participated in numerous festivals both in Quebec and elsewhere in the French-speaking world. In 2007, Mathieu moved to Montreal and immersed himself in the slam scene, a poetic exercise that seemed tailor-made for him. That same year, he presented his first self-produced and independent album entitled Là où le cœur mène. In 2008, he won first place at the Grand Slam National du Québec and flew to Paris and won 2nd place at the Poetry World Cup. He multiplies collaborations with other artists of the slam scene including Ivy, QueenK, and David Goudreault. The path of words will lead him to Beirut in 2009 where he won the medal at the 6th Jeux de la Francophonie in the "storytelling" category. His travels multiply and inspiration grows. Mathieu then distinguished himself by his versatility and humanism.
In 2011, he is the winner of the Festival de la Chanson de Granby. He continues his path with a Canadian tour from east to west and accumulates trips to France. He is invited by Anne Sylvestre in Paris to share a Carte Blanche evening. He participates in the World Culture Festival in Berlin and animates a large crowd with his improvisational skills. In 2013, he releases his first album under the label, Le Voyage. Very well received by the public and the critics, this album consecrates him as a lyricist and poet. From then on, he multiplies great collaborations including the first parts of Francis Cabrel, Ima and Brigitte Boisjoli's shows. His lyrics and his talent for writing are prized and sought after. He collaborates in songwriting for Fred Pellerin, Ima, Brigitte Boisjoli, Amylie, Stéphanie Bédard and many others. His tenacious need to communicate will also lead him to give several workshops in primary and secondary schools as well as at the university level. On October 5, 2020, he released his new single, La Mélodie.
