musical career kicked off
when I was 16, when I began playing
folk-style guitar and then took up the banjo. A group of friends and I
decided to create a bluegrass group called "BLACKJACK". I went on
tour with them every summer from 1987 to 1991. I learned to play the
in 1991, which coincided with the start of my professional career as a
musician. I play in groups that perform a wide variety of styles:
country (Les Westerners), cajun (Louisiana), Irish (I perform in a trio
Marie on violin & A. De Rosa on percussion), New Orleans (good
music), popular songs (mandolin with G. Quittot), Neapolitan music (
Co ), jazz ( 3eme Hémisphère ), unclassifiable
("Fredaline" duo with
A. Quéant on the accordion ), Latin American (Tequila trio).
the same time I
have created a home studio with my friend J-G Kerbiguet and I am now
concentrating on composing music. My first CD " 3eme
issued in 1994: this featured seven jazz-influenced instrumental
My second recording " jeux de rôles " came out in 1996: it
two original compositions and five reinterpretations of standards.
"like live" with a trio, the recording was distributed by
NIGHT&DAY until 1998. My "Zenitude" CD was issued in 2004. This
features four compositions: two instrumentals and two with singing. I
been involved in the recording of a dozen or CDs self-produced by
musicians with whom I have performed.
