How far is a blues musician able to risk to reach the twenty-first century by surrendering to the twelve bars but making innovative, contemporary and avant-garde music? It's not easy for purists, but Slim Paul carries it in the head and the soul. With his guitar and his ragged and ravishing voice, this French from Toulouse, a magnificent composer and with clear diaphanous ideas, has been on the road since 2005, first with the challenging band called Scarecrow, with which he released four albums in which blues and hip-hop go hand in hand, and since 2016 by his own name having recorded three introspective albums where blues and folk caress over by gospel, soul and even with moments of great pop beauty. "Good For You" is his third work, a marvel of creativity and interpretation from start to finish, a gift for the ears most willing to dive into a sea of triviality.
