If you need to take your songs further, I will put all my passion and experience at your service.
For more than 20 years, my profession as a musician has led me to become an independent producer, arranger and engineer for mixing and mastering.
I first produced, arranged, mixed and mastered the albums of my bands and of course for other artists too: Yules, Tara, Julien Ledru, SoPoP, Une Femme Mariée, Jagas, Camille Demon, Kandid...
I did a lot of mastering for Lonny, Victor Mechanick, Yarol, Julien Ledru, Entrée Libre, Etienne Détré, RiP le Dino...
Multi-instrumentalist, I can record for you acoustic and electric guitars, banjo, bass, drums, vocals too...
I mix on Pro Tools and master in the box, I record via interface and Audient preamps.
I did a training with Tchad Blake with MWTM at La fabrique studio in 2017.

Interview with Under Roofs Studio
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on my instrumental album and I'm preparing a session for a fingerpicking guitarist named Julien Ledru.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: François Michaud at Wild Horse Studio. A truly passionate guy with great ears.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital for speed and because as Tchad Blake says: "Well, I guess the debate about the sonics – digital versus analog – I don't find very interesting any more. I look at them now as two totally different but equally valid technologies."
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will give my best
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Meeting talented people, working with them and taking part in the creative process of a song and simply making music.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What are your needs ?
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: A Beyer m160, my Martin D18, my Tweed Deluxe clone by Denis Manlay, my Telecaster 62 reissue, my Tascam 8 tracks
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started working as a musician songwriter and leader of several bands in which my brother and I had the desire to take part in the recording process. We gradually became equipped and after recording, mixing and mastering all our albums, I realized that I could consider myself a producer, arranger of my own music. I then started to work for others with the same fervor. I work in music since 1997.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I work according to the songs, they are the ones who decide and you have to listen to that.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Leslie Feist, because she represents the synthesis of two essential things: the care of the songwriting and the artistic freedom.

A: Folk, Pop, French Pop, Americana, Singer Songwriter...
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: my sense of aesthetics
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: It's hard to explain but when I listen to a song or a demo, depending on its atmosphere, I have a direction that takes shape in my head, something related to my representation of music, my sensibility and what I can do. And when this destination is reached, my work stops.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I listen to the song carefully and quite quickly, I already know what I want to improve by following the direction I feel. It often happens that the artist gives me references and precise ideas of what he wants and in this case, the work is easier.
