NICOLAS MICHAUX

Nicolas Michaux is a singer-songwriter and music producer. Born and bred in Belgium he now divides his time between Brussels, where he’s part of the collective Capitane Records, and the Danish island of Samso, where he resides with his family, growing vegetables and writing songs. Michaux released the critically acclaimed debut album “A La Vie à la mort” in 2016.

Michaux writes and sings both in English and French and his music stands at the crossroads of different traditions : the great era of the French « chanson», the American songwriters, the Brit rock n’ roll of the sixties, the early new wave...
Still he is guided by a deeply personal and distinctive style and spirit. His recordings, homemade and lifelike, conveying a certain idea of modernity : simple and organic. Michaux’s production style paints vivid sonic pictures rooted in a deep consideration of the musical instruments at hand and the textures they evoke. Like a landscape painter, his work is a meditation on the living world. His “paint” is the musical spectrum.
