I write, produce and record for myself and other artists. I'd say my forte is melody-making. I've worked with Lewis Capaldi, Mr Hudson, Charlotte Lawrence, Ofenbach, Grand Corps Malade, Mosimann, Spike Stent, Léa Paci, Hey Violet etc. I also toured with Ofenbach as their lead singers on their European tour.
What I'm always looking for is finding uniqueness in every idea/song that I create or work on.
I can get bored pretty fast when listening to something so the way for me to not get bored is finding unique sounding melodies, interesting chords and one of a kind sounds and production.
My biggest influences are people like The Beatles, Kendrick Lamar, Tame Impala, Frank Ocean, Kanye West etc. and all these people have their own very distinctive sound. That's what I'm aiming for in my songs as well.
I sing, write melodies, chords, lyrics and produce as well. I can also do vocal editing etc. I've been doing it for 10+ years now. I went to Berklee & UCLA and signed a pub deal with Spike Stent a few years ago. I'm now pub free.
I'm looking forward to listening to your music and working together!

Jean is incredibly fun to work with. Not only is his production magic, his melodies are amazing. He’s a wonderful person to collaborate with and you’re sure to have a good time doing it. An absolute inspo!!!!
Jean is an amazing singer and topliner! I love working with him, he always finds great melodies.
Jean Castel is one of the very best artists I've had the chance to work with. Talented singer, topliner but also very polyvalent producer and instrumentalist, I would highly recommend Jean as your next guy if you're looking for a modern hip/hip - pop songrwriter or producer :)
