Keyboardist and singer from Nathan Mahl. Guy LeBlanc has two solo releases:

Subversia

&

All the Rage

 

Strange that LeBlanc is not in this Canadian based archive. Please add him. He shares his solo discography with the Nathan Mahl website.

Here's a little more info taken from Kinesis:

Guy LeBlanc is Nathan Mahl’s leader and keyboardist, and on the first album under his own name, he is joined by guitarist extraordinaire Scott McGill and three other musicians. Subversia (1999) is much more of a fusion album than the Nathan Mahl albums. In fact, it’s probably safe to say Subversia is the closest any album has come to the classic Bruford albums. Since Scott McGill’s playing is very much in the Allan Holdsworth style, the integration of McGill into LeBlanc’s more structured approach is quite similar to Holdsworth’s role in Bruford. The album is mostly instrumental, but there are some excellent vocals from LeBlanc. Highly recommended to fans of Bruford and Holdsworth.

(I will second the opinion on that last sentence. Very One of a Kind.)

All the Rage (2004) has little to do musically with Subversia. It appears more than anything else that Guy’s tenure as Camel’s keyboardist has rubbed off on him, as All the Rage is musically and vocally closer to Camel than anything he has done before with Nathan Mahl or solo. There is even some Genesis influence present. We’ll go out on a limb here and say that this is our favorite of all the Nathan Mahl and Guy LeBlanc albums. It is the most carefully composed, and it shows a maturity in songwriting that may have come from playing Andy Latimer’s songs. There is more subtlety here and a greater depth of emotion, a composer’s album rather than a player’s album like Shadows Unbound, just an excellent symphonic progressive album from a tremendous talent. 71-minutes!
