Born in Toulouse in 1979, he began playing the guitar himself at the age of fourteen. His first approach to the Blues was through a friend who showed him the basic tricks on the guitar, plus three albums he listened to:
Guitar Watsons “Witchcraft”, B. B. Kings “Live at the Regal” and Robert Crays “False accusation”. He’s been playing since then, on stage since 1997. In June 2009 he finished his studies at the Conservatory of music of the Basque Country, Musikene.
