I compose, write, arrange, produce music and sing for albums, commercials, films, theatre. Lead, backing, guitar and saxophone from time to time. I sang on the latest Orange commercial, did some backing on the latest Bosch commercial, wrote, composed, sang and did the voice over on the latest Mademoiselle Rochas commercial for web, radio and TV.
I am a singer songwriter and music composer from France. I work in a nice home studio with an AT4033 and a Bluebird on Ableton Live 11 with a Focusrite Saffire Pro 14. I can sing in English or French, lead or backing, on a lot of different genres of music. I can also compose music and write songs.
I am a professional musician since 2011. I compose music for the theatre, I sing for commercials and I write songs.
