Appreciation for the intersection of poetry and music

Refining the same repertoire over the course of many shows in different types of venues and in front of different audiences.
When did you know you were destined for music?
in high schools with the first concerts
What is the best concert you have been to? What do you like most about playing live?
Too hard to answer, cause concerts at 13 are not the same as at 25. 😉
The best concert is yet to come!
Having an audience and the fact that every show is different and unexpected.
How have you evolved as an artist over the last year?
Chris : Priorities shifting to online presence whether we wanted it or not.
Clotilde : Taking time to create an interdisciplinary play involving projections, dancers and musicians on stage
If you could meet, play a gig, co-write a song, have dinner, have a drink with any band or artist (dead or alive) who would it be and why?
Chris : Prince because we have the same birth day and my music doesn’t sound anything like him but I like his approach
Clotilde : Marina Abramovitch cause I’m totally fond of her artistic personality
What’s next for you?
More shows, more new repertoire and more album releases
