François Houle's impassioned clarinet performances reveal a highly original artistic voice. His uncanny ability to hop between musical genres with characteristic aplomb and vitality makes him one of the most distinctive and versatile clarinetist of his generation. Inspired by collaborations with the world’s top musical innovators, François has developed a unique improvisational language, virtuosic and rich with sonic embellishment and technical extensions. His extensive touring has led to solo appearances at major festivals across Canada, the United States, Europe and Australia. A prolific recording artist, he has released over twenty recordings as a leader, earning multiple prestigious Awards. He is a faculty member at Vancouver Community College, a Civitella Ranieri Fellow, and Associate Composer at The Canadian Music Centre.
