Born January 22, 1957, Drummondville, Quebec, Canada is a contemporary Canadian composer and performer-guitarist.
He studied guitar at the Boston Berklee College of Music and from his youth developed an interest in the jazz fusion genre.
In the late 70s, Cusson toured North America and Europe with the group UZEB he had created. The group won the annual Quebec Music Awards "Felix" in 1984 and 1989 as the best group of the year, and their jazz albums have received this award four times. UZEB disbanded in 1990 and Cusson recruited a new group, Wild Unit, whose first album was awarded the Felix jazz prize the following year. In 1999, Cusson assembled his third group, Projet # 3.
Cusson's music is often featured in Canadian films and TV shows. His songs and music were repeatedly nominated for the Gini Award, and for the music for the film Wild Autumn (L'Automne Sauvage, 1992) he received another Felix. His music for the film The Final Chapter won the Canadian Gemini Television Award.
Cusson is popular as a guitarist. During his career, he worked with such performers as Daniel Lavoie, Lauren Demarais and Moran.
