«Vanupié, one of the pleasent surprise of 2013!»
Stéphanie Binet - Le Monde - August 12th 2013
800 000 persons are beating their way every day in the Parisian subway’s Châtelet station, one of the biggest stage in the world! In front of the treadmill Vanupié created a buzz. Mixing skillfully soul music and spicy reggae with sincerity and subtleties Vanupié affects passers’ hearts creating smiles and tears.
His charming voice unique style resounding guitar and discrete charm slowed the subway rhythm.
After long years of subway music and crowd Vanupié is finally noticed by artists like Mathieu Chedid, Keziah Jones, Asa, Tiken Jah Fakoly, Luke and Madjo… In 2009 he released I-Land his first reggae EP, and this year has been selected as Europe 1’s 2013 new talent!!
Today Vanupié presents FreeBirds his brand new album on which he worked with lot of patience and passion with the same energy and believe in a simple and real music. Flox is at the control, the uk nu reggae/electro scene’s genius produced the album giving a reggae mixed with soul pop and sometimes even electro music. With his entrancing voice Vanupié is crossing styles and times brilliantly honing his craft... As such he achieves another reggae music, an eclectic and free reggae. That’s why FreeBirds is aptly named as the praise of social cultural and musical freedom of which Vanupié has set as a priority. Cliché are being to lessen and only the music really matter unifying music styles and rallying people around the same ideal. The jewel will release on October 8th...
Well it’s a cocktail of colored and well arranged sonorities an intimate and sunny project that Vanupié is offering, a quest for freedom love and sensibility through a music which built his life. Once again Vanupié plays for the others and for a better world.
