“A Voice, a piano, a double bass. That is the sound I had in mind for this repertoire of songs and poems inspired by Nature and its treasures, so that I could create several moods and music as dense as aerial. All these works not only celebrate this Nature, its strength, its multitude, but they also describe Man and his state of mind through love songs.” explains Paul Lay about Alcazar Memories. Alongside with Simon Tailleu and Isabel Sörling, Paul Lay also introduces here songs from his upcoming album Deep Rivers, which dives us into the American folk repertoire, from the end of Secession War to the 1960’s.
Gaëlle Buswel has turned to 70’s music as soon as she had ears.

Gunwood is Gunnar Ellwanger (guitars and lead vocals), Joao Francisco « Jeff » Preto (bass guitar, harmonica, banjo, percussion, vocals), and David Jarry Lacombe (drums, keyboards and vocals). From the Gladiators to the Dubliners and Leonard Cohen, any excuse is good for endless musical jousts. Thoses three guys, far from any nostalgia, were born in the good old times: the 90’s. Even if their deepest influences are bluegrass, folk and blues, they also widely listened to RATM or Radiohead. Their first album Traveling Soul gives an immediate smile. The pictures come, as well as beautiful and humanist values.
Southern Avenue is an American five-piece funky blues and soul band from Memphis, Tennessee, United States.
