L'Aupaire

(DE)

With his debut EP “Rollercoaster Girl”, released in 2014, L’AUPAIRE won the hearts of his folk-pop fans. Full of energy and always concerned with fan contact, he played his first tour of over 100 shows followed by a celebrated appearance at the SXSW conference in Texas, convincing international critics that he is one to watch. Four years, which saw the releases of hits like “Flowers” and “The River”, and many more concerts later, the Frankfurt-born singer-songwriter began a new era in 2018.

He returned to music in September 2018 with a reinterpretation of the Echosmith song “Cool Kids”, which managed to wow his established fanbase as well as attracting new fans across the globe. The song was promptly voted “Track of the Week” by Pulse Magazine: “L’aupaire slows down and reduces the track, packs it into an acoustic garb and turns a poppy party song into soulful storytelling. His characteristic voice is significantly involved in ensuring that this version works so well.” In November, two more songs followed, this time from his own pen. With the release of “Renegades” and “Cinderella” he demonstrates his songwriting talent, taking the playful folk-pop sound of the acclaimed debut to a new level.

However, one can hardly speak of luck in this immaculate career path because his talent is no coincidence but rather: luck is when preparation meets chance. While other boys from his neighborhood played football, L’AUPAIRE preferred to engage with his piano and recorder. At the age of eleven, he discovered his love of playing the saxophone, which eventually brought him to the Dutch conservatory “ArtEZ”, where he completed his jazz saxophone studies. And because the multi-instrumentalist still couldn´t get enough, he took up his mother´s guitar. He drew thematic inspiration from various impressions left on him by periods spent in Budapest and the USA. The result is a unique sound characterized by full-bodied, melodic arcs of pop, a striking voice and enthralling storytelling and promising a unique live experience.

And then there is this incredible voice, somewhere between Bob Dylan and Tom Waits. And the ability of letting his songs explode from every single note and thus provoke an unforgettable and matchless acoustic firework. Sometimes, one just has to be able to go long and winding roads to find one’s very personal musical voice. Then it may ound all the louder though!
