Ricky Paquette is a highly talented musician from Gatineau who made a significant impact in the music industry a young age of 12. He has opened for several renowned Canadian and international artists such as CCR, Simple Plan, Buddy Guy, and Frank Marino. In 2019, he sold most of his assets to purchase a motorhome that he converted into a recording studio on wheels. Despite the pandemic, he continued to work on his latest album and was released in 2022.

With Gordie Johnson's (Big Sugar, The Glorious Sons, The Trews, Reel Big Fish) production and co-writing, Ricky's 9-track album "SPARKS" is a testament to his love for 70s rock and roll, a genre that is not commonly associated with teenagers in the early 2000s. The album's sound is reminiscent of Rod Stewart, Blackberry Smoke, The Rolling Stones, and Chris Stapleton, taking listeners on a journey through Southern California on a hot summer day.

Ricky has recently assumed the role of lead guitarist for the esteemed Canadian rock band, THE SHEEPDOGS. His exceptional guitar skills have earned him the opportunity to tour worldwide, sharing the stage with renowned musicians such as Bryan Adams and Neil Young. This summer, The Sheepdogs will embark on a tour across Canada, the US, and Europe, captivating audiences with Their electrifying performances.
