He studied at Laval University, UQAM and at Carleton University, where he contributed to the research for the “Encyclopedia of Popular Music of the World”. Mr. Sévigny’s interests are the preservation and documentation of Canada’s musical heritage. In 2005, he founded Gala, a record company dedicated to heritage recordings.
