CharlElie Couture to Perform in California

February 10, 2017 | By Francerocks

CharlElie Couture has not only made a name for himself as a talented singer/songwriter, he has also established an excellent reputation as a painter, photographer and producer. He will be joined by Karim Attoumane (guitar) and Blake Miller (accordion, banjo and violin) to perform new songs as well as his classic hits in a set of two-night engagements in Los Angeles at the Raymond Kabbaz Theatre on March 24th and 25th and the 26th and 27th at the Lycée Français de San Francisco.

With his distinctive stony nasal voice and his strong regional accent, CharlElie Couture is one of the most colorful figures to have emerged from the new French music scene. Equally at home sitting behind his piano or strumming his acoustic guitar, CharlElie has experimented with a number of different musical styles in the course of his career, exploring rock and electronic music before re-discovering the blues on his latest album, Lafayette. The rock poet and musical painter went to the heart of the Louisiana bayou to record his twentieth studio album.

The raw, festive album wonderfully sums up the essence of the music he has been making for nearly four decades: an intense, profound, hot, sultry blues, swampy rock, but tinged with poetry. Lafayette was for him the best place to record this album because of the mythical idea he has that Louisiana is a ‘mix of cultures like the French island lost in the middle of the American world’. Once again the singer aims to build bridges between French and American culture.
