Born in Montréal in 1992, Olivier Faubert was only 11 years old when he discovered his passion for music, earning his first role in musical theatre. His desire to write his own songs leads him to form multiple rock groups throughout the 2010s; Haniston, Head Check and his latest project MIIRAGES. After earning the silver medal at Trois pistoles en chanson, he is selected for Star Académie. This adventure had led him to another adventure: the creation of his debut EP with his collaborators Julyan, Benoit Massé and Steeven Chouinard. Olivier is thrilled to be a part of this year’s First Up with RBCxMusic program roster.
