After studying at the Vincent D’Indy music school, Martin Vanier joins the band Talisma around 2000. With his creativity and his textural licks emerging from his guitar synthesizer, Talisma is soon labeled as a “pure progressive rock band”. It releases two albums with Vanier, the most recent being Chromium in 2005.
Soon, Vanier joins forces with Rodier in Specimen13 and some concerts are aligned with Michel Blanchet on the Chapman Stick, most notably, a memorable night with laureat rock poet Lucien Francoeur, frontman of the legendary canadian rock band Aut’Chose.
His greatest show of creative virtuosity however, takes shape in the songs he co-wrote and performed in Specimen13.
