ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In 2013, Syl asked Ric if he could write a song in 10 days, in order to enter a singer-songwriters contest In Nashville, TN. Of course, he accepted the challenge. His creativity triggered, he composed 6 themes in a week! Syl had written 3 brilliant poems, used in priority by Ric to turn them into beautiful songs.
The following songs just flowed out of his guitar. Syl and Ric worked together to smooth off the rough edges of the 15 songs of their first albums. Their initial idea was to record demos but the songs took on a life of their own and the couple ended up recording two very pleasant albums, with a rooty acoustic sound.

CAUTION: Syl and Ric' songs provoke earworm! Once you have heard them, the melodies will get stuck in your head!

*About the band:
- Syl Chad plays the rhythm guitar and is the lead singer of the band. She has a colorful timbre of voice: with clear and ringing in its upper reaches, with gravelly and profound low notes. Her unique way of singing is inspired by the greatest French singers, such as Edith Piaf, Nana Mouskouri and Michel Jonasz. Among her favorite female singer, Ella Fitzgerald occupies the first place.

- Ric Meric plays the lead guitar. His refreshing guitar solos are a blend of Carlos Santana and Django Reinhardt styles, with a pinch of Indian sitar. When he was a teen, he started his musical career playing the bass in a Rock & Roll band. When we recorded our two first albums, he played the bass too, for the occasion.
- Andy Mackechnie, from Scotland, has picked up a multitude of influences from all round the world and has poured them all into his Drum playing. He has played in all sort of bands from Punk to Prokofiev. For the recording of our two first albums, Andy has just used a snare drum and a cymbal, as well as bongos for our Latin-flavored music.

*A short bio:
We are a couple of French singer-songwriters and visual artists, based in the south of Spain.
Our music genre is Folk Rock Latin fusion with a French romance touch, and a mix of styles and dynamics from ballads to up-tempo songs! Playing a fusion of modern & classic music, we mix unconventional lead vocals with acoustic guitars, harmonica & recorder flutes.
We have been together for 26 years as a couple, and 4 years as a band!
Syl was raised hearing Opera (her father was an Opera singer) and Rock & Roll (her brother was a Rolling Stone's fan). As far as she can remember, she always wanted to be a singer.
Although, she waited many years to make her dream come true. Meanwhile she did not waste her time: she has been a painter, an art photographer, a digital artist, and a creative web-designer.

Ric is a music lover too. He had played guitar and bass since he was a kid, performing in bands and solo acts across Europe. He had stopped playing music for many years, while he dedicated himself to painting and writing.
In 2011, Syl decided to learn how to play guitar and sing. Ric immediately supported her initiative and helped her with her first steps into music.
In 2012, "Syl & Ric's Folk Jazz band" was formed: Andy Mackechnie, a very gifted drummer, joined the band which started to perform an appealing repertoire covering popular international famous songs across the 60's to the 80's including Pop, Folk, Rock n' Roll, Blues, Soul, and traditional Jazz standards.
In 2013, Syl and Ric started to write our own songs (mostly in English), working together on the themes, lyrics and the musical arrangements. Along with meaningful lyrics, our songs have catchy melodies and strong instrumental arrangements in our own unique 'acoustic' style. They give the feeling of confidence, freshness, romance, and the upbeat spirit to enjoy the moment.

In June 2014, we have finalized the recording of two original albums called "The Morning Light" and "Smoke and Mirrors", using only real instruments (acoustic guitars, bass guitar, drums and percussions).
As international European artists, we sing in English, Spanish & French.

We are currently trying to place our radio friendly songs to music publishers, and also seeking a recording deal.
Our music stands out and is extremely likeable.
