|Lyrics:||Quand nous chanterons le temps des cerises, |
Et gai rossignol, et merle moqueur
Seront tous en fête !
Les belles auront la folie en tête
Et les amoureux du soleil au coeur !
Quand nous chanterons le temps des cerises
Sifflera bien mieux le merle moqueur !

I grew up near La Rochelle in France and began as a rock guitar player in pub bands. Eventually I moved to Paris and worked in studios (mainly dance music or hip hop) as an arranger and co-composer.
I've studied Moroccan music and worked with the local musicians of Marakkecs. I've also travelled much to Africa and around Eastern European countries like Romania.
I now work for Shockwave-Sound, corporate video and documentaries, and sometimes as an attending or arranger composer. I'm also working on a pop album as composer, with a French record company.
I am a fan of Bruce Springsteen, Jonas Hellborg, Ravi Shankar, Bach, Terje Rypdal, AC/DC and David Gilmour. (a strange list, but I love music). I'm 45 years old, married with 3 children.
