    When staying in Paris, I got in touch with Didier for producing my first song. We went on a magical journey, finding my sound and dynamics in my music and the song. Didier is very talented musician and producer. He understood me very well and manage to capture me as an artist and helped me in recording the song, how I envisioned it. Thank you Didier for the amazing work. Until we meet again on a new project.

    I’m a drummer/singer and I know Didier Théry as a bassist, composer and sound engineer for 15 years. I play the live and studio drums for V1NCM4N (a French Pop Rock Band, Did is the bassist and producer of the band) and I can say that everything seems to be easy with Did. When he’s in the team, on stage or in the studio, YOU FEEL SAFE ! He’s very talented and efficient. This guy is well known in France and it’s fully justified..

    I'm a french professional composer/arranger.
    I have had the opportunity and pleasure of working with Didier many times. Each time, he knew how to take my musical project much further than I would have done alone.
    This guy ROCKS ! (in every situation). And (most important for me) he's also really cool.
    When you’ve worked with him once, it’s hard to work with someone else after...

    Not only Didier is a skilled technician with a perfect knowledge of vintage/modern tools (and the curiosity to dig new sounds) but he is also a talented musician with tasteful ideas. It is a pleasure to work with him: fast, effective, and cost efficient. He will make you play better and sound great !

    Didier Thery est le meilleur réalisateur producteur avec qui j'ai travaillé.
    Nous avons travaillé sur 2 albums ensemble "Black to blue" et "Your Journey".
    Sur"Your Journey" sorti en 2021, nous lui avons laissé les commandes de la réalisation à 100% , et c'est un de nos meilleurs albums et le plus soutenu par la presse.
    C'est un vrai bonheur de travailler avec lui, toujours à l'écoute, bienveillant, professionnel, musicien hors paire et de bon goût, une créativité toujours en action, il pousse au plus haut chaque chanson dans chaque style avec un son très actuel et toujours avec le sourire.
