The Wanderer / Roymusic 2008



When, as a young boy, Jil started playing his first tunes at age 7 on an old broken guitar, his mother couldnt have imagined that a few years later (at 12), he would be accompanying his elder brother on the bass at gigs in bars and pubs, puffing on his first cigarettes while hiding behind the amplifier when police patrols were around.

Its by travelling that Jil discovered himself and met, around street corners of Prague, Berlin, New York and Sidi Bel Abbes, the musicians who accompany him: the Memphies deput(i)es. The Wanderer, the bands first song, marks the official birth of Jil is Lucky.

Today, Jil, 23, and his associates release their first EP. Jils influences are not hard to find, but his trademark is truly the way he celebrates them. Listening to Jil is Lucky, youll surprise yourself thinking of Leonard Cohen drunkenly dancing to the sound of Otis Reddings devilish brass section; or the Beach Boys and Jonathan Richman
fighting over an Ipod battle in an anti-folk bar of Warsaws ghetto.

You never really come out unscathed when you meet Jil is Lucky, and the really lucky ones are probably us
