Check out this Caribbean musician, ardent defender of raw pure music, a mix of Reggae and Folk, with rough and soulfull vocals. He is also producing music for documentaries and advertisements and has great skills for arrangements. Fuelled by his own existential and spiritual convictions, the ease and sensitivty with which FABRICE draws us into his universe makes us want to hang out with him and his guitar around a bonfire to put the world to right, with light and understanding.
FABRICE started working as a side man for artist in the 90's; taught in a school during the week and played music live every week-end. A couple of years later he released “La Brise”; an album well received by the French public. It’s a mix between Jazz, Folk and Gwo ka (drums as played by the slaves in Guadeloupe). It was prized by the store chain « La Fnac » and the French professional organisation « Sacem » gave him a grant for it. Then he started giving concerts in Europe. But the professional cross-over he was looking for as a musician seemed undefined.


After a concert in Paris he came across David Rubinson and Herbie Hancock. They likewise urged him to find "a style of my own". It all helped him refocus and I ended up finding the right recepy. FABRICE has finally created a new style : REDGOLD&GREEN FOLK

All the while, He continued performing opening acts for major artists, to give live concerts at festivals… working with musicians like Kery James, Zad, Franck Nicolas, Fanga, Tyrone Downie from The Wailers, Stéphane Détrez, Masta Flow, Inor Sotolongo, Aline de Lima, K2Rriddim, Cheikh Lô, Fanga, Keziah Jones, The Gypsy Kings, Oscar Sisto, Tiken Jah Fakoly, Stanislas, Grace & the victory riders, Alela Diane, Stéphane Cadé, Gasandji, Cristophe Isselee and many more...
