SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist - Soprano, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard, Piano.
Now aged 30, I thought until very recently that art was way more interesting than real life...I've come to a conclusion that all life experiences benefit to art...but in my book, the goal still remains God, beauty and art.
I currently spend everyday of my life commuting to the office where people come to make a living. The persons I work with are good people but as for the job itself, it's another story...
Apart from my beautiful family, the only thing that moves me from the inside is art. I tried several ones: first music, then drama, filmmaking and finally, I'm back to music because I realized it means everything to me. It brings deep feelings, ideas, joy, love...all positive emotions and you know what? As long as I remember, it has always been like this.
I want to put things in order and give back to music the place it deserves in my daily routine. I want it to fully be part of my life and for this, I'm ready to commit to a band: rehearse, put on shows, tour...whatever will be necessary to bring it to the next level.
I've had experiences in bands and musicals, mostly as a lead singer. I taught myself acoustic guitar and have been playing for 15 years. Prior to that, I took 5 years of classical piano lessons. I'm also a songwriter (with a guitar, a keyboard and a computer to reproduce instruments I don't play).
For now, I'm available nights and week-ends for auditions.

I'm from the French West indies. Consequently I have many influences and I must confess it was hard to select only 3 genres. Reggae, Country, Folk, Funk, "soft Jazz", Jazz Manouche, Zouk, Latin, pop, lounge and electronic are all genres that touched me at some point. As long as the rhythm, melody and groove are there, I love it! Among the artists who marked me, I could name Coldplay, Bob Marley, Matisyahu (King without a crown, Sunshine), Juan Luis Guerra (Estrellitas y duendes, no aparecen...), Eli (Stand, second hand clothing), Prince (the Work, joy in repetition, purple rain), Marc Anthony, Alan Jackson, Kassav etc...
