Producer, musician, performer, lyricist, composer and arranger, today Benjamin Biolay is one of the great figures of the French musical scene. On 22 May next, he will climb on stage at the Rockhal for the very first time.
Benjamin Biolay, a complete musician and artist, will release his new album entitled “La Superbe” on 19 October 2009 at Naïve, his new artistic home.
“La Superbe” is a work containing a perfect blend of chanson and pop. From the precision of the XTC arrangements, through melodies inspired by the first Smiths, to the raw but refined sound of the Label Factory of the Eighties or the political hip hop of The Streets, for the first time Benjamin Biolay unveils his love for a certain English scene.
It is through his personal work, his many collaborations and his strong stage presence (tours of France and abroad, in particular Germany, Spain and South America) that Benjamin Biolay reveals all the facets of an unrivalled talent.
Today, at only 36 years of age, Benjamin Biolay is one of those personalities who really count in the world of French chanson!
La première partie de ce concert sera assurée par Marie Warnant, jeune artiste belge dont le nouvel album intitulé "Ritournelle" sort ce mois-ci. Un album arrangé et réalisé par Vincent Liben (Mud Flow) et qui renferme le titre "La Valse", écrit et composé par Benjamin Biolay.
