Bio

Bijou's music is a reflection of his childhood and life experience.Son of a Sephardic
immigrant and a nomadic father, his home life was
anything but conventional. He lived in various homes around northern California before settling in the small town of Mendocino, outside the radar of mainstream society. For most of his life he lived
in a barn with no indoor plumbing and infrequent parents, yet he was still taught to be an individual and find his own path in life. His parents eventual divorce during his early teens caused an uncertainty in how to express himself, but Bijou
would soon find solace and solidarity in a most unexpected place, the words of the legendary Tupac Shakur. The rap music that attracted
Bijou painted pictures that spoke directly to his
soul which he expressed in poetry. Eventually at the age of fourteen he began writing his own verse and joined other local youth in honing their voices.

Bijou became transfixed in creating music which carried throughout
high school. Performing locally to consistent crowds, he scored a regional hit with the song "Welcome to Mendo" which recieved local
airplay. After graduating high school he attended San Diego State where he continued to make music and perform at school functions. Bijou's international background also led him to perform in Israel and Morocco.

After completing his first music video, "Beautiful Struggle", Bijou
was part of a large DEA bust that resulted in him spending some time in jail. This experience only solidified his determination to put his past behind him and move forward into a professional career as a musician.

This year Bijou left college to complete his debut CD, "Where The Pavement Ends," which brings him back home where he finds himself more comfortable now than ever before.
