Sule Heitner

As a regular performer at the legendary Jello Bar in Montreal, Sule (pronounced Sou-Lay)
had many chance encounters with musical royalty. Although each would make for a great
story, one such encounter remains particularly dear to him. “I remember this night
specifically because I was going through one of those inevitable moments of doubt that
happens periodically with young artists. I was genuinely considering throwing in the towel
when a gentleman approached me with his hand extended and said, ‘You’re Sule. I’ve
heard of you. You’re a very gifted artist’.” The gentleman was Edward Ellington, son of the
great Duke Ellington. “He and his sister April’s kindness and encouragement helped me put
any self doubt I was feeling to rest.”

Sule‘s solo career may seem shiny and brand new by industry standards, but calling him an
emerging artist falls somewhat short. An experienced artist known for his dedication to his
craft, he’s supported acts such as Sky, Corneille and Stephane Moraille (Bran Van 3000) to
name a few. He’s also shared the stage opening for acts such as Celine Dion, Kool and the
Gang, Sean Paul and Akon, and is heard on albums such as Lionel Richie’s “Coming
Home”, Bet-E and Steph’s debut record, singer songwriter Katheryn Berry’s EP and the
Café Méliès compilation series Vol 1. He reached the quarter finals on season three of “La
Voix” (Quebec’s version of “The Voice”). Now, Sule is now forging onward under his own

Whether writing and recording or performing live on stage, Sule shoots for excellence,
aiming to give listeners the kind of experience audiences must talk about the next day. “ I
want people to have to tell their friends, their neighbors, their co-workers, what they saw
and heard. Surpassing expectations is always the goal.”

Consuming a healthy diet of everything from Rock, Folk, Americana, Soul, R&B, Gospel,
Funk, Blues, Jazz, Reggae and the music of the Caribbean, Sule is clearly well acquainted
with various styles of music. He’s achieved a unique yet familiar sound through cross
pollination of these genres, which has enabled him to easily stride over musical boundaries,
it’s an important element of all of his original compositions and informs his approach to
material he decides to cover.

To truly experience Sule‘s music, artistry and energy you must hear him live, this is where
all the colors and versatility of his work come out in their full spectrum. Sule is committed to
putting on shows audiences can’t ignore and won’t forget. His live act is a dynamic sonic
experience with a full range of emotions. He adeptly goes from intimate ballads to head
bopping rhythms to high octane, full out rockin’, and combines these to suit any audience.
The repertoire is a careful selection of Sule’s original compositions and exciting new
arrangements of songs from some of his favorite artists.
