Biography

A chance meeting in Paris between noted blues/rock guitarist Sylvain Laforge and New Yorker Angela Randall has now led to the formation of ‘Lux’, an electrified alt-folk sort of outfit. Many will know them from their gigs around Paris in in such clubs as OPA, Le Cavern, Le China, Supersonic, The New Morning, La Boule Noire, etc.

Having played the big festivals and all the major venues in Paris and abroad with the Rita Mitsouko, Lux is a more intimate affair for Laforge and one where he is no longer the guitar-for-hire but, as he puts it, ‘the boss’. A strong believer in the purity and tradition of American blues (‘Everything I do is the blues’) Laforge felt an immediate chemistry with Randall’s understated lyrics and, shortly after their first meeting, they were writing songs and gigging together.

Imagine Natalie Merchant wandering into Villa Nellcote when the Stones were recording Exile on Main St. and you’ll get a flavour of who they are and that seductive allure of punchy guitar and wounded lyrics. Laforge feels strongly that all songs should work with just guitar and voice and, similarly, Randall’s spare lyrics tap into that same traditional aesthetic uncomplicated by layers of production or studio gimmickry. As a purely acoustic act, their songs and performances were the gentler side of Americana. Following a first EP in 2014, they have now recorded their first full album with Peter Deimel at Black Box Studio to be released on 6 October 2017.  With Julien Boisseau (Jesus Volt) on bass and Franck Ballier on drums joining them in the studio and on stage, Lux is playing a rockier sound. With bass and drums behind Laforge’s stunning guitar work, these new recordings breathe new life into their repertoire as well as kickstart a catalogue of new songs, new performances and new followers.
