Im a singer/songwriter from France and I’ve been in the UK for 7 years now. I’ve been playing guitar and writing songs for about ten years. I’ve been in a touring band for about 3 years and been playing solo for a while.
After travelling for the last two years as a resident musician in hotels around the world, I’m back in the UK where I’m looking to build a band under my own name.
Currently looking for bass player, lead guitarist, keyboard player and drummer. I have a lot of songs written and want a reliable band to help me put them into life. Ideally I would like to record and gig with the same musicians.
Please only get in touch if you’re highly committed. I can send demos and we can have a chat and possibly a jam/audition. I’m looking to book a rehearsing space once all members are gathered. Would need to be available 4/5 times a week for practice.
There would be no money in the beginning so all members need their own income to start with.

Ballad of the Seasick Sailor
Ballad of the Seasick SailorAs I was going through the extensive list of demos and drafts I have on my phone, one of the earliest ones was a recording of the opening chords and the first verse that my friend and long-time lyricist Dave had written. When in Cyprus I got some kind of blues feeling like the enjoyment of my life travelling abroad had reached its limit for a while. I continued the song with that theme in mind, talking through the voice of a "seasick sailor". It was mostly written in one night after my shift. Hope you dig it. x Photo by Sam Artigau.

Water Is Wide
Water Is WideHere's my version of "Water Is Wide", which is an old celtic traditional. I fell in love with the main melody as a child listening to french singer Renaud's "Ballade Nord Irlandaise". I stumbled upon John Gorka's version on the incredible "Where Have All The Flowers Gone" which compiles songs sung by Pete Seeger and I was quite frankly mesmerized. My version is very much inspired by his. It was recorded very spontaneously (with some Irish whiskey on St Paddy's day 2018) at my family's home in the south of France with the help of my two sisters, Marie and Elise, on backing vocals. ___________________________ Produced, mixed and arranged by Lucas Bernard in Uzès, FRANCE.

Dead In The Streets
Dead In The StreetsDead In The Streets was the very first song I wrote on my own for JELA at the time. It started out as a punk song but we ended up leaving it aside and it came back in my solo sets later on in a very folky outlook. I was 17 when I wrote it, just finished college, it was a hot summer in the south of France and these "dead town's streets" felt like they were closing in. We had been lent a flat in town that we happily squatted for two weeks. We were dying to leave for Manchester and live our rock n' roll dreams but in the meantime were trapped in this same old place. It truly was written out of boredom. It's a song about youth, friendship, escapism and promises. It might not be my strongest work at all but I like it for its simplicity and naivety. Let me know your thoughts on it! ________________________ Written, performed, recorded and mixed/mastered at home by Lucas Bernard. Artwork by Sam Artigau.
