Pierres
Pierres

Pierres is Pierre Leroy's solo project, launched last January and escaped from the band AZERTY just one year ago. Finalist that same year of the competitions 'des concours Du F. dans le texte et Parcours Francofaune'. He has since then revealed his universe made (according to him) of uncomplicated and intimate popette songs.

Ivan Tirtiaux
Ivan Tirtiaux

« A childhood passed in the theatre amongst actors, musicians and craftsmen gave Ivan Tirtiaux his first taste of music.

Sung in his deep, supple voice in his native french he has created a unique kind of ‘folk nouveau’ drawing equally on chanson française, folk, blues and latin music. Both chiselled and organic, poetic and precise, a rich spectrum of experience is refracted through his sparse narratives.

After « l’Envol » in 2015, Ivan Tirtiaux now presents « L’oasis » (out on the 3rd of may 2019), a new album of worldly and other-worldly reflections distilled into 8 shots of knowing tenderness, light and shade.

His voice of brandy and torn velvet stands comparison with John Martyn, his melodic sophistication and harmonic depth with Jeff Buckley. The whole is imbued with Tirtiaux’s meticulous lyrical vision and feline grace, and laced with delicate orchestrations that shimmer like ice palaces in the sun ».
