Sébastien Lefebvre (born June 5, 1981) is a French Canadian musician, who is best known as the rhythm guitarist and backing vocalist for pop punk band Simple Plan. He also released his debut solo album “You Are Here/Vous Etes Ici” via Coalition Entertainment Records in 2009.

Lefebvre’s surname is properly pronounced, among French speakers, “le-fev”, but English speakers generally pronounce it “le-fevra”. He has commented on the difference, without pronouncing the French, in his podcasts. On the DVD A Big Package for You, he pronounces it “le-fever” when he introduces himself; however the other band members can be observed smirking as he does so.

Equipment

Sébastien currently uses Framus, specifically the Mayfield. He currently uses Mesa Boogie and Framus amplifiers. He uses a modified Boss chorus pedal and T Rex Replica and Tremster

Early life

Lefebvre grew up in Laval, Québec with his parents and three siblings. He is very close to his older brother, Jay Lefebvre. He also has two younger sisters, Andrée-Anne and Héloise. Jay is mentioned in the album “Still Not Getting Any…” credits as well as the “Simple Plan” credits and on the Man Of The Hour website and MySpace, where he is thanked for “catering”. Lefebvre’s parents divorced when he was in high school. Both remarried, according to the “Simple Plan” credits where he thanks “My four parents.” His mother, Lorraine Pépin, works as a children’s psychologist and social worker in East Montréal and his father, Jean Lefebvre, works at Human Resources in Central Montréal.

Man Of The Hour

Broadcast on Virgin Radio CJFM in Montreal. Sundays 9:00 pm to 10:00 pm

For over 3 years now, Sébastien Lefebvre and long-time friend Patrick Langlois from MusiquePlus have teamed up to create Man Of The Hour, a new music podcast available on iTunes. Through their extensive knowledge of music and obvious camaraderie, Sébastien and Patrick fill up the Man Of The Hour Show with fun, facts and the best new music.

“Man of the Hour” began as a proposed side project to include himself, Patrick Langlois and Bowling For Soup’s leading man, Jaret Reddick, though no songs were ever actually recorded. However, T-shirts and other promotional items were made. With no spare time to devote to developing the band, it turned into the radio show they have today; “Man of The Hour Hour”, on Virgin Radio airs Sundays 9:00 pm to 10:00 pm

Solo Project

During early 2009 Lefebvre recorded an acoustic EP entitled “You Are Here/Vous Etes Ici.” You Are Here / Vous Êtes Ici was released October 20, under Coalition Entertainment (Records) Inc. Sébastien was inspired to make “You Are Here” purely by his love of writing and recording music. The EP could not sound more different from Sébastien’s previous work with Simple Plan.

With all the songs having been written, recorded and produced by Sébastien himself, “You Are Here” brings to light the depth of his talent. This seven track EP is a departure from Sébastien’s punk rock roots and showcases his folksy, laid back side.

The first single “I Fall For You” was released on September 8. A music video was recently released on YouTube[1]. The music video is directed by Simple Plan band mate, Chuck.
