After more than 130 dates around the world in 2019, a Boiler Room which elevated him as one of the most promising artists of the new generation, Folamour has become in a few months the spearhead of a solar and dancing music that affects the whole planet.
The experience and musical sensitivity of Folamour are plural and successful. After playing drums, bass, guitar and percussion, he worked with the Opéra national de Lyon and collaborated on projects ranging from pop to jazz. Therefore, his pieces are always marked by a rich musicality, imbued with romanticism, poetry and emotions. Folamour is inspired by the values of classical music, funk and disco, but brings it its own special touch.
After several EPs, he decided in 2017 to offer his first album, imagined and composed around the notion of balance, “umami”. A first opus that will have a resounding effect and will definitely place him among the artists to follow. He returns in 2019 with a second album «Ordinary Drugs», a new concept album, written like a story of which each song would be a chapter making us travel in his universe.
Two years later Folamour released his last album, The Journey. The autobiographical account of the last two years of Folamour, spent between airports and stages, London, France and the rest of the world, between crowds and loneliness, between ups and downs.
An album composed between metropolises and no man’s land, inspired by significant moments that greatly surprised and touched the artist. To express all these emotions, Folamour put aside samples and computers to focus on writing texts, recording strings and brass, drums, voices in order to be closer to the moment. No format or genre limits, total freedom to choose the right tool for the painting.
This album is the sum of chance and encounters, an initiatory rite, both in form and content, the tale of a life with all that it may contain of joys and trials, both in its writing and its production than in its message, «The Journey» mixes contemporary sadness, isolation of the artists, but also wonder of the simple pleasures of life and the discoveries it brings with it, it is neither a joyous story, nor a sad and disillusioned tale, it is the sum of all that and the rest too.
