TSF: Bon Temps Rouler

Posted on 10/10/2017

I’ve been co-hosting the Blues/Soul radio show “Bon Temps Rouler” with Jean-Jacques Milteau the past couple of months on Paris-based jazz radio TSF. So much fun! Getting to hang with Jean-Jacques and listen to cool Blues/Soul tracks is the best – this music is what allowed me to become a musician and remains the foundation of most things I do. I’m looking forward to keeping on doing this for a while, TSF is a wonderful place to be.

LONDON GRAMMAR x CAMILLE

Posted on 08/10/2017

If you had told me a year ago that I would get to perform with Camille and London Grammar, I would have had a hard time believing you. These are two of the most beautiful and fascinating voices ever, and some of the most exciting projects around. But the occasion did materialize when Camille invited Hannah, Dan and Dot along when we did the French TV show Alcaline last month.


DBF

Posted on 24/08/2017

Anyone interested in music produced in France over the past 50 years should have a deep look into the work of producer / engineer / mixer / musician Dominique Blanc-Francard, nicknamed DBF. Getting an early start in the business in 1970 in the legendary Chateau de Herouville studios, recording the likes of Pink Floyd, Elton John, David Bowie, Cat Stevens and T.Rex, he quickly established himself as a succesful freelance engineer, and went on to work on much of the most classic and iconic music of the past 5 decades. I’ve been lucky enough to work with Dominique on several projects in his state of the art Labomatic Studios, and each time has been a precious learning experience. I’m currently thoroughly enjoying reading his memoirs “It’s a Teenager Dream”, and I would recommend it to anyone. I hope it will be translated into English someday, the content here is definitely of interest to many people way beyond the French language sphere. You can get it here.
