Marc-Andre Belliveau releases new EP

By Derek Taylor

Back in the ’00s, Marc Andre Belliveau was one of my favorite skiers to watch. His ability to trick in big lines, revert to switch at high speed, and jib off unlikely obstacles made him one of a kind. In 2006 he lost the use of his legs in an accident in British Columbia. After that, he became one of my favorite musicians, and his song Sink in a Hole is still one of my favorite tracks. MAB has been off the radar for the last few years. But he’s back to skiing, helping his brother run a tour operation in the Chic Chocs in Eastern Canada. And he’s back to making music.

In January, he put out a new EP, titled Sideshow. It’s available on iTunes, and is worth every penny of the $4.95. All the tracks are worth listening to, but I particularly like A Second Ago and Easy. They are songs that will speak to anyone, but particularly if you’re a skier.
