I am of French Huguenot descent, born in Africa, a kind of African Cajun, and my love of music has always encompassed the rather wide range of Blues, Bluesrock, Rock, Rock ‘n Roll, Country and Metal, but also Jazz, Mexican and other Latin forms of music. In spite of the fact that my family have lived in Africa since 1688, there is very little contemporary African influence in my music. So what! I play what I love to play, and that’s that. I have several bands, Erongo Conspiracy and BluesRock & Country Inc., but they consist only of me. Here on the wild Atlantic coast in one of the remotest spots and the oldest desert on earth, the Namib, with not a blues/country/rock musician in sight, I do it on my own: with the help of my seven trusty old guitars, plus all of my Production Software and studio equipment. I compose the music, write the lyrics, do the vocals, the mixing and the tweaking. I am a kind of one-man-band. I’m in love with rocking rhythms, hot guitars, my lyrical Strat, wild fiddles, funky Saxophones, rocking harps, honest resophonic guitars, growling organs. I love to experiment with the unbelievable potential of electronics. My approach is often eclectic: I refuse to be restricted to one style or category of music, and I use whatever I feel is right for a specific song. But most of my songs have an unmistakably bluesy and rock touch. If any band or singer out there would like to honour me by using any of my songs, you'd be most welcome to do so. I'll give you a special permission to do so, obviously without any charge.
