Benjamin Biolay won two awards Friday night, one for male artist of the year, and one for album of the year. For all of us that worked hard on the album “Grand Prix”, it was great to receive this recognition from the rest of the business. People enjoyed our version at the ceremony of the single “Comment Est Ta Peine”, which I believe is the biggest song in terms of airplay in Benjamin’s solo career this far…

For the back story of this performance, I have to mention my gratitude for the fact that Benjamin, the booking agency Decibels and his management decided to go through with preparing the tour in October. In the end we only played 2 and a half shows before France went back into confinement, so it might have looked like a bad decision to maintain the costly tour rehearsals for so few shows. But besides the fact that those show were like a shot of oxygen in these suffocating times for Benjamin and the rest of us, it also meant that we had a much more energetic and stage ready version of the song to perform Friday night, which sent Benjamin immediately to the top of the iTunes Charts for album, song and video. Hope you like it! And hopefully we’ll be able to do some more shows with this wonderful band soon!!!
