The “mad scientist” of Thunder Bay, Ont.’s music scene will be bringing his one-man band to Red Deer.
Jean-Paul De Roover, who was given that label by Exclaim! magazine, will perform on Saturday at the Slumland Theatre at 4732 Ross St.
Using live looping to blend rock, pop and electronica, De Roover creates his own “post-pop” sound that has been hooking audiences across Canada.
De Roover’s latest album, Complexity in Simplicity, was co-produced by Juno-award-nominated Ben Leggett. De Roover goes for a minimalist approach on it with live drums and bass added to his guitar, vocals, keyboards and synthesizer.
The musician, who was raised in Africa, Asia and South America, has lived in Canada since 2001, performing at festivals and sharing stages with acts including the Beach Boys and Goo Goo Dolls.
