Winner of the 2020-2021 Jazz Radio-Canada Revelation title, Carl Mayotte is one of the most prominent young bassists and jazz musicians in Quebec and Canada at the moment. Having started his professional career at the age of 16 and completed a master's degree in jazz performance at McGill University, his virtuosity and versatility have been recognized by several musicians and critics, from Alain Caron to Bass Magazine. His third album, "Escale," earned him a Felix Award for Jazz Album of the Year in 2022.

One of the young musician's goals is to democratize jazz and bring this musical genre to the forefront. He has just released his fourth album, an ode to Brazilian music.
