Emmanuelle Caplette


Emmanuelle Caplette made her debut at the age of 9 years when joining a local Drum and bugle corps. For 8 years she played snare with different corps from Quebec. It is during these years that she won many awards including first place at the provincial individuals championship in Quebec, four consecutive years in a row! Upon her entry at Drummondville College, she studied drums in Pop/Jazz style with Camil Bélisle.

In 2001 she studied at Drummondville College and participated at the “Cégep En Spectacle”. She won the prestigious award of L’OFQJ (Office Franco Québécois Pour La Jeunesse) with her duo Drummologue, and in 2002, they opened the Montreal Drum Festival.

In 2003 she was chosen to represent Drummondville College in a Rising Star Contest at the Montreal Drumfest. Following her College Diploma she decided to continue her studies at the University of Montreal in Pop/Jazz Interpretation with Paul Brochu. At the end of her first year at the University Emmanuelle was hired by the Troop Cavalia (for the american tour) which was composed by Michel Cusson.

Some big opportunities started for Emmanuelle in 2007 with the realization of her objectives, she got the opportunity to play drums on television and go on different tours, with several Pop artists in Quebec. She participated 2 years in a row at the “Gala Des Jutras”, and she performed at Quebec’s National Day (St-Jean-Baptiste). The same year she went on tour with Ima (Smile/A La Vida) and Marilou (Tout Simplement).

In 2008 and 2010, Emmanuelle was hired to play on a new Children’s Television Show on Radio-Canada with Annie Brocoli: “The Broco Show”. This opportunity allowed her to meet some extraordinary people like Quebec’s Producer Guy Tourville, who gave her the chance of a lifetime to record her two first singles on the radio, “Une Fois Pour Toutes” from Marie-Chantal Toupin and “Tu Ne M’aimeras Plus” from Cindy Daniel. She then recorded the entire album for the Broco Show.

Today Emmanuelle is keeping busy touring with Ima (Precious tour), performing in music festivals, workshops & clinics, drum festivals and recording sessions.
