Corbeau was a Quebec rock group, very popular at the end of the seventies. The group was formed in 1977 by the film-maker, lyricist and singer Pierre Harel with Michel "Willie" Lamothe on bass guitar and Roger "Wézo" Belval on drums (all previously members of the group Offenbach) with Donald Hince on guitars. Jean Millaire completed the make up of Corbeau after a short tenure with Offenbach. Harel was the lead-singer up until the arrival of Marjolaine "Marjo" Morin, whereupon they shared the role until the departure of Harel just before the launching of their first album in 1979. Corbeau broke up in 1984 after the departure of Marjo and Jean Millaire.

In 2009 the original members (with the exception of Pierre Harel) re-united to record one track for Marjo's new album, Marjo et ses hommes. Corbeau re-recorded the track Demain.
