Together with my friend Stéphane Mercier, we decided to make a cover band with awesome jazz musicians & friends: Soul Made. Our dear Igor Gehenot is on the keys, my faithful Joel Rabesolo on the guitars, The one & only Pauline Leblond on trumpet, Groovy Federico Pecoraro on bass and great Toine Cnockaert on drums.
Nice team indeed, with beautiful individuals. We had our first concert @ La Tentation & had a warm welcome from the public. Our repertoire is a taste of soul, jazz, groove.
With Gary Celnik (aka Hapaxx), we are still working on a video clip, in a beautiful place, hope you will like it!
I hope to see some of you at my next concerts! For exemple at Music Village Jazz Club, a beautiful old Jazz Club in the centre of Brussels (25 nov), where I sang last week with Pete Churchill, invited with the others singers of the Royal Conservatory.
I will also have the huge honor to sing with the Royal Band of the Belgian Air Force !!! On the 8 november in the Church of La hulpe for the 100 years of the end of World War I.
On top of that, I'm still studying hard at the Conservatory and sing in many private events of oranisations, companies or family events.
Thank you for your support :) I'll see you around!
Summer! Now I finally have the time to give you some news.
The concert @ Jazz9 Mazy was such a bless. I was so happy to have the opportunity to sing in an amazing & renowned Jazz club in the small village where I was born. Magical (as we called the people living in Mazy :-) : "Mazyciens")! The place was fully crowded. The musicians who accompanied me were perfect too: Igor Gehenot (Piano), Giuseppe Millaci (Doublebass) & Guillaume Malempré (Drums). We share the stage with Oleo Trio, beautiful & Inspiring music.A huge thanks for the warm welcoming of Jazz9 team & to the public. I'll release soon a video from this concert, keep posted :) (Huge thanks to Arnaud Ghys & Robert Hansenne for the photos)
Also I'm excited to announce you my collaboration with Gary Celnik (Aka HAPAXX), belgian pianist & produceur. We worked hard on this and we'll release our first song soooon...
After the finals exams of my first year in Conservatory, I have now the time to compose & focus on my projects. I'm preparing some surprises for you :-D !
Such exciting past few months!
I was pretty busy with my exams at Royal Conservatory of Brussels in january, some gigs, going to sing with a bunch of crazy/talented musicians in a ski hotel in France, and of course with the competition of "THE VOICE BELGIUM". That was a beautiful experience were I met amazing people & learned a lot.
Here is the first step, my blind audition with Janis Joplin - "Me & Bobby Mc Gee" (you can only see it in Belgium or with VPN).
Here is the second step of the duels with a song from Jessie J - "Do it like a dude" (you can only see it in Belgium or with VPN).
And the Live show with "Fly away" - Lenny Kravitz (you can only see it in Belgium or with VPN).
Thank you so much to all the people who supported me during this experience.
Hope to se you at my next concert in Mazy/Gembloux (Jazz 9), the 28 of April with amazing Igor gehenot(piano), Giuseppe Millacci (Doublebass) & Guillaume Malempré (Drums)!!
J'ai finalement succombé à la tentation et aurai le plaisir de participer à The Voice Belgique.
Si le coeur vous en dit, vous pourrez voir ma tête dans votre salon mardi prochain!!
La question est : BUZZ OU PAS BUZZ??
Merci à la douce Lara Herbinia, pour la photo
Ps: ceci n'est pas un gag
Ps2: trop hâte de partager ça avec vous!

I owe you some news since my latest news from January 2017. Already half a year has passed with plenty of musical activities for me.
This last year, I continued to learn a lot thanks to amazing belgian musicians (Philippe Laloy, Marie-Sophie Talbot, Guillaume Vierset, Olivier Colette, Fabrice Pillet, Toine Thys) and I can announce you quite a Big news: I have been accepted at the Brussels Conservatory in Jazz singing. I am very happy and excited to attend Pete Churchil class and of course all the others.
During this year I had a lot of private concerts and I had also some performances in public events for companies and organizations. All these different concerts have given me the opportunity to enlarge my repertoire and style of music (Jazz, pop, soul, latin, brasilian, chanson française...)
I had the chance to perform several times as a duo with Renaud Crols, a wonderfull pianist, including in the beautiful Archiduc. We also played with Renaud Dardenne on Guitar and Renaud Crols on violin.
Last but not least, I'll sing with a Jazz Big Band: The Blue Train Big Band the 21 of october! I'm very excited about it! Infos will come soon.
I am also working on projects with own compositions and I will let you know how it goes...
I let you with a little home-made video I made with the recording of Miss Celie's Blues and photos taken during my journey in New-York, 2 years ago. Hope you'll enjoy it!
