Jeff Beaulieu is Montreal’s Your Favorite Enemies guitarist, Hopeful Tragedy Records owner, Upper Room Church Studio co-owner and non-profit Rock’N’Rights founder. Since YFE’s creation in 2006, influenced by the likes of Ian MacKaye (Fugazi/Dischord) and Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion/Epitaph), Beaulieu based his career and social involvement on a DIY ethos and community values.
His vision led YFE to not only become an international act, a Juno nominee band and spokespeople for Amnesty International, but also pioneers of online live concert broadcast, direct-to-fan merch and fanclub services. His unique interpretation of today’s entertainment business makes him a most appreciated speaker, debater and mentor.
