(NEAR GALE/MUNICH) De Britse Belg Fred Lyenn Jacques - artiestennaam: LYENN - presenteert een intrigerende debuut-cd. Een album dat niet meteen te vatten is, maar al na een paar luisterbeurten een diepe indruk achterlaat. De prachtige zangstem van de Belg snijdt diep door de huid en zijn - soms bijna klassieke - composities zijn gevarieerd en verrassend.

Het ene moment roept hij de sfeer op van de moordballades van Nick Cave, het andere moment brengt hij een prachtig luisterlied en net zo gemakkelijk zet hij een gekwelde zangstem à la David Eugene Edwards van 16 Horsepower op. Een intens luisteralbum, voor liefhebbers van eigenzinnige droefsnoeten. Rianne van der Molen

“Belgian Songsmith Fred Lyenn Jacques - who performs as LYENN - purveys spare refined art pop tunes with a powerful aura of mystery and menace” - Time Out New York (USA)


Ghinzu en tête, voilà qui n’étonnera personne, tellement on s’est tués à le dire. Le consommateur nous rejoint sur ce point, foi de l’Ultratop, puisque Mirror, Mirror fut l’album belge le plus vendu en Wallonie en 2009. Sinon, les Flamands pavoisent.

1. Ghinzu, Mirror Mirror
2. Madensuyu, D is done
3. Lyenn, The jollity of my Boon companion
4. Daan, Manhay
5. Saule, Western
6. Bony King Of Nowhere, Alas my love
7. Phantom ft. Jacques Duvall, Le cow-boy et la call-girl
8. The Rudy Trouvé 7tet, 2007-2009
9. Carl, Où poser des yeux?
10. Liben, Tout va disparaître - Le Soir (BE)


Né en Belgique, d’une mère anglaise, Fred Lyenn Jacques a enregistré entre New York et Asse ce disque intrigant. Tant la voix aérienne du chanteur que ses parties de guitares, renforcées par Marc Ribot et Shahzad Ismaily, nous emportent dans son univers magique. Longues séquences planantes et riffs bluesy destroy épicent un disque étrange et pénétrant.

Bio

Lyenn is a remarkable vocal talent. He produces melodious sounds, ranging from angelic, soft whispers to piercing, tortured screams. His vocals penetrate deep layers of emotion and create an intense, chilling experience for his audience. Lyenn’s music grazes the soul, using a wide variety of instruments sparingly and soberly.

As an accomplished live artist, Lyenn has toured extensively, in Europe and beyond, performing solo, in his varied bands, and accompanying Mark Lanegan as bass player. He has recorded with such exceptional musicians as Marc Ribot, Shahzad Ismaily, Ches Smith, Doug Wieselman, Joel Hamilton, Jolie Holland and Sam Amidon.

With “The Jollity of my Boon Companion,” Lyenn released a brilliant debut album at the end of 2009, on which ten breathtaking tracks plunge the listener into a tension filled rewarding journey.
“Vowels Fade First” was released in 2011. Its five tracks are calmer compared to earlier work, but still possess the same underlying intensity that Lyenn is known for. His music reveals rather well the contradictory nature of his alluring and elusive personality.

In every form, experiencing Lyenn’s music is an intimate encounter.

Lyenn is currently working on a new album and will be touring with Mark Lanegan throughout this fall.
