Charles Boyer

As a child Charles Boyer's world was encompassed by rock n’ roll music. His father was one of the few Canadians to attend Elvis Presley's concert on April 3, 1957 in Ottawa. From this show, the passion for rock n ‘roll was passed on from father to son.

Consequently, his love of music led him to positions in radio such as, coordinator of a student run college radio station and host on a community radio station (Radio Centre-Ville Montreal).

With a background in computer sound engineering, he worked on various commercial soundtracks for companies such as: Rogers, Yoplait, and Volkswagen.

After winning the Coup de cœur award at the International song festival in Granby with his group Chapeaumelon, he toured various clubs and festivals throughout Quebec and made three appearances at the renowned Montreal Francofolies. In 2003, his first album made its way to the top ten on the charts of the newspaper Le Devoir; and was ranked among such artists as Jean Leloup and Ariane Moffat.

Always in his element on stage, he did, however, not leave behind his love for studio recordings. His material and songs were used on various American TV shows, including Las Vegas and Scooby Doo to name a few. One of his compositions was also incorporated into the Hollywood film "Eurotrip".

Having evolved in the field of music for several years, he is now pursuing the musical adventure of the creation of musical content for the Galaxie music channels.

The spillover of his father's love of rock n' roll had an enormous effect on Charles as he is now the content manager for several Galaxie channels; Nostalgie, Franco Retro and Jukebox Oldies as well as programmer of Souvenirs. The love of music is transcends time and generations.
