Vic de Sousa- Dress him up in an orange jumpsuit and throw him into the slammer to do the Jailhouse Rock. This man is definitely guilty of singing his mind, tearing up a stage and rounding up a group of admirers. DeSousa wears many hats these days. He is a well known Elvis tribute artist as a regular cast member of a touring theatre production “The Louisiana Hayride” where he plays a young Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly. In addition to this he fronts the Rock band Stereo Villain. Playing Elvis has taken him as far as Mexico and Portugal to sing. Nobody can blame him because he had a sweet alibi... love of rock and roll.

The story starts when Vic de Sousa co-founded and fronted his long time rock group Sweet Alibi. The longtime relationship with the boys in Sweet Alibi allowed de Sousa to tour Canada’s western region, expand his horizons and polish his already electric stage presence. 

While with Sweet Alibi, Vic de Sousa and his group were fortunate enough to open for bands such as Def Leppard, Sammy Hagar, and Loverboy.  The hard working artist has been featured several times on A-channel’s “Big Breakfast” and “Wired”, as well as RDTV’s “Music City” and Videotron’s “The Edge”, Global TV News and CTV News.  In addition, he has been featured on Edmonton’s premiere rock radio station, CFBR (“the Bear”) on its ‘Red, White and New’ program several times.  He has enjoyed regular rotation on commercial radio with his single “Blind” at the time of release.

De Sousa was faced with heartbreak when his mini music empire “Sweet Alibi” came to a halt a few years back. His 3 amigos in the band decided to pursue careers in something other than music. De Sousa took a year off to regroup and contemplate his future. De Sousa decided it was time to take matters into his own hands and embarked on a solo career, He started writing and recording for his 4th independent release. In 2005 he joined the remaining members of the group Final Offence to create a new force called, Meltdown and put his 4th indie release (Rockstar College) on hold.  Meltdown, "melted" the year after it was born...... A few months later Vic answered an ad in a local indie paper and was fortunate to find the 3 other hombres that made up the band “DeSousa Drive (DSD)”. Finally, thanks to the boys that formed DeSousa Drive, his 4th release “Rockstar college” was released and 2 years later “Smile for the wrecking Ball” saw the light of day. The line up in DeSousa Drive, took the one way street to other endeavors which put DeSousa in the position of having to regroup with yet another line up. Enter the first creation of Stereo Villain and the release of the EP “Blood & Soul”. The first creation of Stereo Villain showed promise just like all the other predecessors but again life got in the way and had other plans for the members of that line up including Vic. The Elvis tribute side presented other opportunities which lead to Vic's first official release as a solo recording artist, “Me, Myself and Elvis”. Today you can say that Vic has come full circle as a Christmas get together lead to the boys from Sweet Alibi to re-unite and make up the latest infusion known as Stereo Villain( Sweet Alibi name now belongs to a Country group). The re-united group has revived the old music they played back when they first started along with DSD and the first Stereo Villain creations. Vic and the boys are excited about the new music they are currently creating and bringing their energy back to the stage.
