At five years old, he started playing the piano and he attended the Music Conservatory of Paris when he was eight. In 2007, he enrolled in Berklee College and he even wrote a song for French singer and actor Marc Lavoine album, Volume 10 in 2009. He continued working with other artists and he teamed up with Beck in producing Alyssa Suede Campbell’s third album, IRM.
With From Gainsbourg to Lulu, Lulu carefully handpicked songs that he felt properly celebrated his father. He has also placed a unique touch on each individual song with the help of his guest collaborators. The Berklee graduate has successfully debuted in France to positive reviews and is now setting his sights on making an impression in the US.
