I developed a passion for the harmonica about 20 years ago. The instrument chose me one night, while attending a concert. I immediately knew that the harmonica and I would have a long lasting relationship. I have always wanted to be in perfect harmony with my instrument so I could add my harmonicas to music and lyrics. Over the years, I felt the urge of leaving the traditional musical path that many tend to identify to the harmonica. The great value of freedom of expression, that is so dear to everyone but so difficult to set in motion, is also very important to the musician.
In order to express myself musically, in a free and honest way, I hobbled towards various musical horizons. Through this process, which at times felt more like an escape, the soloist suddenly became a melodist. My sound has matured into a swifter and more ringing musical phrasing. Latino and African sounds blend in perfectly with my playing while the main melody remains occidental. The influence of rock guitarists is very present in my music. The dynamic of the songs are very guitar oriented. My musical project is based on diversity and emotion. Life has showered me with many pleasant surprises. One of them was a short detour in Western Canada where I lived for 3 years. Over there, I fell in love with the magnificent Prairies.
That particular landscape was everything a freedom freak like me could ever hope for . The never-ending horizon, the constant winds, the wheat fields that turn into a blond ocean on windy days and the breath-taking sunsets , were all settings that greatly inspired me.
I'm a "RONIN" since i have no allegiance to any styles.
