I´m profoundly in love with this Irish songwriter who you might recognise from the movie Once. Glen Hansard dropped out of school when he was 13 and played in the streets of Dublin looking for a future in the music industry. Since then he has recorded 9 albums and many EPs. His voice is sweet and his chords take me to a calm, worry free zone. His musical and vocal talent is beyond doubt.
Julien Doré is a french talented singer -songwriter who rose to fame after winning a french singing reality show in 2007. Since then he has released 3 albums that have been a major success.
His 3 albums are very different from one another. Truth is the first one i don´t really like, I feel there´s a lot going on and an undefined style… but the last two, im in love with. His music is versatile, acoustics, electronica and crazy beats can be found all over his albums. Even though most songs are in french and i cant understand, his scratchy, sensual and tender voice successfully transmits his smooth laid back music style.
His latest single is Chou Wasabi, my favorite song of his so far…i´ve listened to it a thousand times.
