Hailing from Pré-d’en-haut in the Memramcook Valley in New Brunswick, George Belliveau was born into music. Growing up in a popular family on the musical scene, La Famille Belliveau, George was surrounded by violins, guitars, pianos, and a chorus voices rising up to sing at every occasion. At an early age, he is initiated by his mother to Acadian music and tap dancing. Music will soon become his hobby, his passion and even his livelihood.
Over the years, George’s passion for music will materialize in a rich cultural venture. In 2000, he decides to put his determination and his skills to work for all the artists in his region by building, with his brothers, a recording studio in Barachois, New Brunswick. The Studio Belivo translates into an immediate success thanks in part to George, who works full time as a technician and producer for many Acadian albums.
If George has the skills needed to immortalize on disk the talent of a variety of artists, it is that he himself is an accomplished artist who has a great experience in the Acadian musical industry and beyond. As a young boy, he stood out with his exceptional talent by performing in numerous musical contests in which he often won the honours. He also took part in a number of radio and television programs where he instantly seduces with his voice and an obvious musical talent.
As a teenager, he and a group of friends decide to try their hand at the musical adventure with Les Rigouaîches. The young music lovers will interpret the great successes of Acadian music for two years. Some time later, George and his brothers Jean and Martin will found the music group Belivo. The trio launches its first album Generations in 1999. The album contains original compositions, interpretations, and traditional songs. Always in search of new challenges, George and six other musicians form the group Bois-Joli. He will be singer as well as artistic and musical director for the group during its nine years of existence. Bois-Joli has left a profound impression in Acadian musical culture with three albums, performances in Canada and in the United States, four Étoile awards in 2001 and the francophone recording of the year at the East Coast Music Awards in 2002. The songs of Bois-Joli still make plenty of people dance in celebrations all across Acadia.
During his musical journey, George has always cultivated a sincere love for his own music. Between two songs or two studio sessions, he always finds the time to work on his passion that has never left him during all these years of singing and playing with a variety of groups. He has presented his original compositions during contests in the Atlantic Provinces and Canada. He has won second place in the Atlantic contest Startrack 98 and took part in the national Project Discovery contest which led him to performed during the 2001 Canadian Country Music Awards in Calgary.
In June 2006, he launched his first solo album L’amour viendra nous sauver.
