Q : Do you currently endorse any brands or products?
A : No.
Q : How long have you been playing?
A : 13 years. The first 5 don't count.
Q : Do you do guest solos ?
Q : Have you studied music ?
A : I took private lessons with Jean-François Jarry for a few years then I did my own thing and taught myself the rest
Q : Where can I buy your merch and cds?
Q : Is your music also available on digital platforms (IE bandcamp/itunes/spotify/google play)?
A : Click here to stream all my music. Individual links to spotify/googleplay/itunes/bandcamp pages will be found on each of the album's players. Otherwise, this linktree url may help you out also if you're looking for something a bit more specific.
Q : Where can I find and purchase music tablatures of your bands?
A : Only Serocs sells tabs online. You may find them on Seroc's bandcamp pages. I otherwise don't sell digital tabs. Not into that idea for now. First Fragment is likely going to make tab books one day but not within the next year.
Q : Do you offer guitar lessons ?
A : For now I don't.
Q : What is the best way to book one of your bands to play in my country/city?
A : Feel free to get in touch with the agencies I have linked in my "links" subpage. Heavy Talent handles Funebrarum, SPC & Continent Concerts handle First Fragment, Gatekeeper Productions handles Chthe'ilist, CEA Music handles EE.
Q : How many bands are you currently in?
A : Seven! It's always between 6 and 10 and it often changes though. Just depends of the year. The more the merrier.
Q : What's your favorite band out of all the ones you're in?
A : I'm tempted to say the ones in which I end up acting as producer but all of them are really important to me.
Q : What's your favorite band in general?
A : That changes literally every month.
Q : What are your other interests outside of playing music?
A : I like to write fiction, do some occasional (and minimalistic) graphic design and work out. I also love to read horror literature and about history. I also deeply love video games. 90s JRPGs are my favorites. I'd probably join the video game industry full time if not for my musical career.
