here it is, finally! “Past Forward”, the new Grand Pianoramax 7-track EP is out now on all digital platforms!
It was created in collaboration with my longtime partner in crime Dom Burkhalter, who also mixed it (and co-produced its content), as well as with special guests Neo-soul singers Gaspard Sommer and Angelo Powers, both from my hometown Geneva.
As it came out only a few weeks ago (on September 11th), media coverage is still coming in, but here are a few quotes about it:
“Past Forward succeeds in pushing further the adventure of Grand Pianoramax: there is no repetition in this album, but instead the feeling of an exploration that continues.”
–Le Matin Dimanche (CH)
“Grand Pianoramax is making a big comeback with a new EP that is both coming back to its roots as well as a fascinating new step in the band’s discography.”
–Les Oreilles Curieuses (FR)
“The guest appearances by Gaspard Sommer and Angelo Powers give the project a Neo-soul dimension tinged with Hip hop, a cleverly mixed cross-genre attesting of a protean evolution in constant mutation.”
–Benzine Magazine (FR)
“An album not to be missed.”
–La Gazette de Paris (FR)
I was recently live on the Swiss-french speaking news on La Première to talk about this new release. To hear the podcast from this interview, click here.
A fantastic music video for “Un peu de temps”, the album’s opening track, was created by the talented Portugal-based team of Henrique Vilao, Luis Ales and Tiago Damas.
We’ll soon be performing this music live in Lausanne, La Chaux-de-Fonds, Geneva and Bern (visit the concerts section of this site for more infos about it).
