Biography

Bio
Hervé is Haiti's newest breakout singer songwriter to have landed on the American shores. He fits perfectly among a lineup of a small breed of new male singer songwriters to have appeared on the music scene in recent years, like John Legend, James Blunt, and Howie Day.
Hervé's uniqueness however is in his astonishing voice. A vocal quality that is commanding, distinctive, warm, and thrilling. His debut CD, Hervé Number 1, was produced by the dynamite producers of two career defining albums "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill" for the artist Lauryn Hill and “Mariah Carey” for the artist Mariah Carey. Under their guidance Hervé has emerged as a true musical discovery. They have managed to showcase his vocal dexterity with aplomb while maintaining their bright vision of the many possibilities of this artist.
In the end, we are left longing for more from Haiti's most promising star since The Fugees. Hervé's full LP "Seven Seeds" is due for release in the spring of 2009. The title track "Seven Seeds" is an ode to Dr. Maya Angelou on the virtue of courage. It is Herve’s most instrumental virtue along the path to his many successes.

Seven Seeds

Written By: Herve Coeur-Aimable

Seven Seeds



It’s a brand new day
On the street
Don’t bar your windows
It’s time to see
The fertile soil
Across the street
We had rainstorms
But not defeat

We’ve got Courage
To make this garden
With the Seven Seeds of Love

Freedom’s road begins within
Take a chance soar with the wind
Grab the prize and realize
The Seven Seeds of Love

We’ve got Patience
For longevity
She runs a distance until infinity
We’ve got Vision
For precision
The LaserWriter of imagination
She turns darkness to creation
With the Seven Seeds Love

Freedom’s road begins within
Take a chance soar with the wind
Grab the prize and realize
The Seven Seeds of Love

We’ve got Hope for direction
We’ve got Faith for motivation
We’ve got Joy for clarity
We’ve got Desire for unity
With the Seven Seeds Love

Freedom’s road begins within
Take a chance soar with the wind
Grab the prize and realize
The Seven Seeds of Love

Courage, Faith, Patience
Seven Seeds of Love
Joy, Vision, Desire, Hope

Mr. Blue

Written By: Herve

Mr. Blue
You wear a blinding smile
To mask a mystery
You’ve crossed an ocean tide
To follow Vanity
She makes a lovely bride
All sailors do agree
She sings her siren songs
To bring us all ashore
To the land of make believe

We all live in a world of make believe
We all burn for a chance with destiny
We all wish for our dance with vanity
We all pray to not be led astray

Mr. Blue
You wear a blinding smile
To mask another mystery
This city is a trap for dusty misery
It chokes you while you sleep
To grasp your thirst for life
It shades the morning light
Cause you long to be free

We all live in a world of make believe
We all burn for a chance with destiny
We all wish for our dance with vanity
We all pray to not be led astray

Don’t it make you sad to watch your dreams by the hour glass
Don’t it makes you sad to watch them fall in a weather lottery
Don’t it make you sad, don’t it make you mad
Oh Mr. Blue don’t it, make you, make you, make you…

But
We all live in a world of make believe
We all burn for a chance with destiny
We all wish for our dance with vanity
We all pray to not be led astray

Vengeance

Written By: Herve

You’ve been losing sleep
Like a bird on a wire
You’re suddenly restless
Your heart is on fire
You had your last kiss
Still you can’t find peace
Had to let go but
You’ve miscalculated
Now you’re lost in a recurring
Dream in the twilight of regret

I’m your vengeance baby
I’m your venom baby
I’m your monster baby
Your last one

Left me on a sidewalk to burn
With my desire
Had so much love to give
It turned to fire
Many man have walked
This earth to leave no shadow
You’ve lost the reverie
In your embrace
Now you’re lost in a recurring dream
In the twilight of regret

I’m your vengeance baby
I’m your venom baby
I’m your monster baby
Your last one
I’m your vengeance baby
I’m your venom baby
I’m your monster baby
Your last one

There is no second chance
When you’ve lost the right one
And it’s your heart that pays
When you’ve miscalculated
Now you’re lost in a recurring dream
In the twilight of regret

I’m your vengeance baby
I’m your venom baby
I’m your monster baby
Your last one
I’m your vengeance baby
I’m your venom baby
I’m your monster baby
Your last one

Pourquoi

Written By: Herve

Je ne t’ai pas vu
Pour une miriade de jour
Tu est parti en train
Ton menteau a la main
Tu as disparu avec le vent du sud
Sans aucun aurevoir ou des mots sur papier
Je me dessine des histoires
Pour m’ecarter de ce brouillard
Me voila maintenant Robinson egarer
Noyer dans la migraine sous le poids de mes doutes
Il faut quand meme s’echapper

Pourquoi le soleil
Qui ne se leve plus
Pourquoi le telephone
Qui ne sonne plus
Pourquoi le bonheur
Qui ne pousse plus

Je suis alle voir ta tante
Pour lui demander de tes nouvelles
Je lui racontais de tous mes desespoir
Et de tous mes nuits sans fin
Elle a dit mon fils
Ne te bas pas la tete
Tu sais que l’amour
Ne fait pas toujour de sense
Elle est tombe amoureuse d’un
American pour un autre paradis
Il va falloir du temps pour reflechir
Il va falloir du temps pour decouvrir
Que l’aventure et l’amour
Ne son pas pareil

Pourquoi le soleit qui ne se leve plus
Pourquoi le telephone qui ne sonne plus
Pourquoi le bonheur qui ne danse plus

C’etait un Jeudi matin
Des années on passé
Peut etre il fallait oublier
Je fermais la porte
Pour abandonner cette ville
Avec tout ces memoires étrangler
Je disais aurevoir a l’espoir et l’amour
Et tous ses reves de mensonge
Je prennait mon taxi pour aller ailleur
Vers mon nouveau paradis
J’ai entendu ta voix qui pleure
J’ai entendu ta voix qui pleure

Pourquoi le soleil qui ne se leve plus
Pourquoi le telephone qui ne sonne plus
Pourquoi le vent ne m’importe plus
Pourquoi le bonheur qui ne vole plus

Pourquoi le soleit qui ne se leve plus
Pourquoi le telephone qui ne sonne plus
Pourquoi le bonheur qui ne vole plus
C’est toi comme de l’or que j’avais perdu.
