SLIM discover English and music
African-American at the same age.
In contact with the latter, English is gradually becoming
his native cultural language
BLUES becomes like a religion. and Fervent practitioner
he learns stories, legends, anecdotes, quotes.
he is inspired by the great as well as famous unknown and
his guitar becomes his soul complement.
Being perfectly aware that his life is very different
of the blues pioneers in the racist south of the United States,
Slim Paul is inspired by his predecessors to tell his rages,
his demons and those of his generation.
Among the routes taken for 10 years
with his, now, former Blueshiphop band,
those of the United States remain the most memorable in the mind of Slim.
Love at first sight with NEW YORK.
The crossing of TEXAS and the festival SXSW of AUSTIN.
The wonders of NEW ORLEANS.
He writes his third EP, No Yet Man, resolutely blues
that he registers upon his return to France.
He brings back, especially, all the frame of his future first album,
Certainly already dead
As if all the concerts, all the recording sessions,
all the jams, every hour of road,
every heart trouble and every worry of money,
the thunderbolts like the big passions,
had led Slim Paul to this album.
A little death for a new trip.
