Interview by Carla Morton
Hello Jamie, nice talking to you again, how are you?
Hello Carla! Thank you to interest you in my other project. I’m fine and I have a lot of work because we are composing the second album of Azylya and I have to promote, at the same time, my solo album.
Beside Azylya, you have your solo project. What can you tell me about that?
The label Epictronic asked me to make a solo album in my mother tongue, French. Of course, I accepted this great proposal. Riccardo Daga, who is my producer, made all compositions and I wrote the lyrics. It’s a rock album with songs in French and others in English. The music is very energetic and rhythmic. The lyrics are darker in general. The songs deal with different topics: thwarted love, loneliness of the soldier, the suffering of animals, rock stars died very young … The album was recorded at Studio Titan Labs in Ferrara in Italy in August of last year and the album was released March 30, 2015.
