About The Artist

Located in Coquitlam

ReeVay is the moniker of the multi-talented Marc Rivest. The Coquitlam based artist gracefully weaves the finest elements of folk, jazz and pop. His tender yet evocative voice poetically delivers his handwritten lyrics. His work is simultaneously soothing, powerful and transformative. It’s easy to get lost in the rich tapestry of sound he has generously created. He combines complex jazz arrangements with simple harmonic structures that are endlessly captivating. ReeVay is inspired by the likes of poetic juggernauts Cat Stevens and Leonard Cohen which is apparent in his material yet he brings something entirely fresh to the music table.

ReeVay is now a staple to the music scene in the Lower Mainland. His perpetually evolving material has been recognized by impressive radio and publications across the province as well as festival performances across Western Canada. ReeVay has been featured on Vancouver Co-Op Radio, CJSR, CJSF, Bonsai, The Hawk, Shady Pines Radio, and The River along with Sounds On the Couch and The Tinnitist. He has been a featured performer at the 2021 Richmond Maritime Festival, the 2022 Steveston Salmon Festival, and will be performing at the 2023 IGNITE! Festival in Calgary AB. His efforts as a recording artist have led to winning Jazz Artist of the Year at the 2022 Fraser Valley Music Awards. Stay tuned for all this truly gifted artist has to offer.
