Grimaud on SoundBetter

I am a french singer-songwriter. I try to convey my sound through an exploration on what I call an emotional road-trip. Early on I developed an exaggerated passion for literature, philosophy, and songwriters like Prince and John Mayer. This blend of inspiration gave birth to my kind of Pop-R&B cocktail, infused with a little bit of rap.

Auteur-compositeur français, j'explore des sons à travers ce que j'appelle un road-trip émotionnel. Très tôt, j'ai développé une passion exagérée pour la littérature, la philosophie, ainsi que les songwriters comme Prince et John Mayer.

Ce mélange d'inspiration a donné naissance à mon genre de cocktail Pop-R&B, imprégné d'un peu de rap. J'écris, j'enregistre, je joue et je produis toute ma musique.
