When I was 17, I met a boy who led me to discover the world of music, this world that's been fascinating me since my early childhood.
He taught me the art of composition, he also taught me how to express myself in a world in which I had never found my own place until then. I shared almost two years of my life with him, working on projects, between love and hate, God knows this wasn't easy as I only was a lost child and he was like a family for me. I'll never forget everything he's done for me... never.
I came to discover the project that was just perfectly fitting me on 2013. When this boy and I had to split our way in two parts, I met the Depression. I faught this illness and this led me to compose "ARSENAL" and showed me that there are persons one can never forget, even throught the passing of time.
I have a disease. Every day, I'm fighting hard against a wolf but life is worth it and music means everything to me.
So this is my new album ; it almost drained me, I've been i'll about that, I've spent two years working on "PARAPLUIE" but, Oh Lord, it was so worth it all... I'm just feeling glad now.
I'm willing to share this album with you for free, this is a dark album, but a sincere one. It means my memories, my dreams, my fears, my hopes ... and, I'd like it to bring you as much as it brought to me.
Why is this album called "PARAPLUIE" ? Because there's always a trustful way to get safe from sadness and furthermore there are in this world people who happen to feel so much love for you that they work like an umbrella (parapluie is actually the french for umbrella), like a shield against the wounds of life.
I'd like to end up this message with a little saying maybe common or cliché but full of truth ; Believe in yourself and never hang over... life is full of beautiful surprises even during it's most terrible moments.
