PopTones Vocal Ensemble are proud to be accompanied by a rotating roster of incredible local musicians. Meet some of Montreal's best:
Lisa "Dee" Perusse
Dee's pedigree includes an undergraduate degree in music and a master's degree in choral direction, and her years in touring bands Throwback and Erik Lind & The Orchard made her a serious badass. These days, Dee is a professional yoga teacher and manager of Moksha Yoga's NDG and St-Laurent branches.
Co-founder, Assistant director, Guitar
Jake plays guitar and cracks jokes, and sometimes has to direct the PopTones when Dee is sick. He is most proud of his zany funk/jam band The Fuzzy Logic and his recent solo releases. He is also a serious dude with a masters degree in neuroscience, and is currently pursuing his PhD in clinical psychology.
Handsome Parisian and epic drummer, Michel is also 1/5th of Montreal indie band Erik Lind & The Orchard.
Hockey fanatic, superdad, and flag authority Erik Lind is a kickass songwriter and leader of Montreal indie band Erik Lind & The Orchard.
Multi-instrumentalist and man-bun aficionado Jeff is a member of Montreal group Perfect Strangers.
A recent addition to the PopTones team, super-nice guy Frank also plays drums in local band Perfect Strangers.
Multi-instrumentalist, successful business owner, and exceptional human Joel is the director of the West Island Music Academy (WIMA).
Piano genius and sweetheart Francis (or as Jake calls him, Franky Fingers) is 1/5th of Montreal indie band Erik Lind & The Orchard.
