French chansons from Helsinki.

I moved to Finland more than 30 years ago and I am happy to live here. I never stopped loving the French language, which I even occasionally taught, and I write all my lyrics in French. Music never left me either and, on top of playing my own songs, I regularly play traditional Irish music and sometimes … Russian music. I especially love composing melodies on top of my own lyrics that I then sing. Writing a song is a very long-term yet fascinating activity, which is always rewarded in the end, as is the work of most craftsmen.

I almost forgot: I love translating great songs into French; from Finnish, English or Swedish… and almost naturally, a few years ago, in 2013, I started to record in a studio and publish my own CDs. Remember CDs! These small flat pieces of plastic that you keep in your car… Many thanks to Peter Thomasson and Jeanne Couprie for their kind support for my adventure as a French singer-songwriter in Finland. I hope you will enjoy listening to the fruit of our work.

Meet you soon en chansons!
