Frederic “Lyenn” Jacques has toured the world extensively as bass player in Mark Lanegan’s band.
He has also had the opportunity to share his own music on tour – in Europe, USA and even China – and has moved people with his art wherever he has been.
His latest album "Adrift" was recorded completely live in Iceland, again with Lyenn’s faithful companion Shazad Ismaily. It contains some of the timid singer-songwriter, a multilingual Jeff Buckley on piano or Nick Drake on bouzouki. Miniature landscapes loom out of the fog, reminiscent of late Talk Talk or Mark Hollis' solo work. His pop music is refined like David Sylvian's, even if it is just two notes sometimes.
Lyenn’s music grazes the soul, using a wide variety of instruments sparingly and soberly. Nothing is forced neither planned. Spontaneity, freedom and improvisation are key, to step into a dialogue with his audience. Also in his live performances, no two sets are ever the same. All is instinctive, instantaneous and fleeting. And true magic descends upon the listener who is prepared to step into the moment with him. A powerful unity drifting upon the melancholic tide of a film noir.
Together with Bert Dockx and Steven Cassiers - Frederic "Lyenn" Jacques also makes up for 1/3rd of the jazzrock trio Dans Dans.
