Richard Laviolette is a Guelph, ON based artist who has earned himself a devoted fan base over the past decade while following his heart into folk, rock and roll, and country music. With homemade music he makes open-hearted statements against the systems of injustice in our world, without sacrificing poetry or ever falling into self-righteousness.  Over the years, Laviolette has ventured multiple times across Canada, sharing the stage with artists like Timber Timbre, The Weather Station, and Geoff Berner playing at festivals like Hillside, Sappy Fest, and Lawnya Vawnya. In 2010, Laviolette caught the attention of You've Changed Records (Shotgun Jimmie, Daniel Romano, The Weather Station) who re-released "All Of Your Raw Materials" nationally to critical acclaim.
