In his mid-twenties, this young man from Saint-Étienne (France) has just released his third album in just four years, establishing himself as an emerging value on the French blues scene. Polyintrumentist, he's in charge of the electric guitars, the dobro, cigar-box and to compose nine of the ten songs that make up the album, only saluting the "Walkin 'Blues" by Robert Johnson. His proposal is based on delta blues, electrifying ideas and pleasing those who seek daring and heterodoxy in contemporary blues music. His voice fits perfectly into his narration and has the invaluable help of his mates Jean-Marc Henaux on harp and Gaël Bernaud on percussion. Listening to this album there is no doubt that in Europe there are excellent artisans of music who have their maximum degree of expression in the blues.
