Everyday, Slow Joe sings improvised or written songs of his own. In July 2007, fate has it that he meets paths with Cédric de la Chapelle, a young French musician. Instantly charmed by his voice, he has him do some a cappella recordings. Back to France, Cédric spends two years with his friends, the Ginger Accident, writing the music he hears behind the voice. The result sounds like some black blues with a white soul.
