Synopsis

Unless he has been practicing baroque music or Bantu harp for 60 years, no contemporary artist can claim he has been spared by the American media’s fighting force and enticing treats. As a child, Gildas Arzel discovered an album by John Fogerty who, freed from Creedance Clearwater’s communitarian contingencies, gave birth to a project in a class all of its own, gathering the songs that touched him in his early years. We found there blues, rhythm’n’blues, gospel, bluegrass, tex-mex, swing, country, cajun, old-time…

Gildas just like Fogerty in his time, has wanted to help us discover these styles, all inspired by blues, which shaped today’s music. The vocation of his new album Greneville is to go back to the roots, hoping to rediscover some forgotten elders, from Blind Lemon Jefferson to Ralph Stanley or Pats Domino, Hank Williams among others.

In this widely open Pandora’s box, Gildas freely draw his inspiration, as much in his singing as in his guitar playing that was the heyday of Canada and his solo career. Then as a songwriter and musician for all the artists he has been working with for more that 20 years (Johnny Hallyday, Dan Ar Braz, Garou, Jean-Félix Lalanne, Roch Voisine, Maurane, Céline Dion, Yannick Noah…). With his two old friends Gildas Lointier (sound engineer) and multi-instrumentalist Christian Séguret, they gave birth to a genuine homemade album, fed with passion, expertise and creativity. Talent in short.
