Bio

.fen was born in Frameries, small city in South of Belgium. From the age of 5 years
already, he shows great interest for music.
He’s strongly influenced by the 70ies and 80ies, he listens to « soul » artists as Chic,
Quincy Jones, George Benson, Marvin Gay, The Jacksons, Stevie Wonder, etc. But he also listens to oriental music due to his roots…
At the age of 25, he learns playing piano , while in the meantime, he continued playing guitar with friends. He also follows singing courses at the Music Academy where he lears controlling and managing his voice on the most famous opera arias. His professor discovers then a warm, powerful and extraordinary voice, capable of great extensions.
In 1993, he creates the band “Arias” with pop-world influences. Until the 1995, Arias
is not more than a hobby, but in 1996 ARIAS participates in the national belgian tv
show « Pour la Gloire », one of the biggest music conquests of the Belgian public
channels RTBF. They reach the final among more than 600 candidates. This first victory
changed their destiny. A great wind of confidence and ambition blows then over the
group. At that moment they auto produce their first album "Isla".
Thanks to Arias, .fen discovered his talent for composing and writing, in different
languages such as French, Spanish and Arabic. He even got the opportunity to perform on of the greatest stages in Belgium, the Francofolies Festival in Spa in front of more than 2000 people. Up then, .fen learns to perform on stage like a professional, to manage his voice and a public for more than 2 hours without loosing a cent of energy!
Since then, he did the most prestigious Belgian festival stages as, Cap Sud, Mano
Mundo, Couleur Café, a lot of Cultural centres, even in the MCM Café in Paris. Arias
will release several albums, getting very positive critics, paper releases.

In 2004, fen go to Paris, his music under his arm, searching for a producer.
The hits were recorded in Brussels and produced by the band with his sound engineer, Stephane Owen.
The major company Universal shows very fast interest. After meeting the Artistic Director of Khaled, the international artist, who was also charmed by the singles, very fast they decided to cover in the album “Ya Rayi” of Khaled, one of their songs “Zine Zina”.
The Artistic Director, Raphael Garoute from AZ - Universal will say: « It is the first time that I hear such a music with, all at once, so much style mixed and in the meantime remaining very actual in the sound ».

July, 2004, a deep disagreement separates the members of Arias, some people
decide to leave the band and any further collaboration with Universal seems difficult.

January, 2005, .fen decides to compose and to write his solo album. In this album,
fen expresses fully himself, with all his musical influences and matters such important
to him.
« It is my first own album, with its strenght and its weaknesses, but it is me. Through
this album, you’ll discover me, just by listening to it … »
At the beginning of 2006, he composed more than 30 songs and starts producing 6
of them.
May, 2006, he meets one of the most famous French “voices”, Maurane, on the
stage installed on the Grand Place in Brussels. He surprises her by the quality of his
performance in front of an audience of more than 6.000 people !

July, 2006, he starts recording his 6 songs: "Pardonner", “Si Tu Savais”, "Comme Un
Fou", “Mira”, “Partout”, "Dejen",
June 2007, Véronique Daffa (AVD Communication), artisitc agent in Paris, contacts him and become his Manager. August 2007, fen records his first video clip "Pardonner".
December 2007, the Album "Pardonner " is officially released. The adventure goes
further, his tourney in Belgium and in France starts.
In September 2008, the album is distributed in France by the music label Mosaic Music Distribution.
In the meantime, .fen still writes and composes, polishing his songs and purifying them, interpreting them on stage and always listening to the public interactions.
In March 2009, he will release his second album...

Welcome into his world!
