2002 – MLE Narcisse
Edmond started writing lyrics as far back as 1996. His first titles are sung adaptations from instrumental versions of the trip-hop wave (Dj Cam). He has various influences ranging from Etienne Daho, Sho Ayami; for the voice, Mylène Farmer, Robert; for the lyrics and Deee-Lite, Pet Shop Boys right through to Pizzicato Five for the music.
In 2000 he left his native West of France to study Japanese language and civilization in Paris. It’s during this period that Edmond makes his debut as a singer-song writer by releasing his first album on the 20th of December 2002: MLE Narcisse (multimedia limited edition). For this album 25 limited edition copies were created and was a multimedia CD including pictures and videos. Each with its own promotional silkscreen picture.
2003 – Journey in Japan
In December 2002, Edmond then leaves Paris, for a year, to live and work in. During his time there he writes most of the lyrics from his forthcoming album “Tsumi”. At this point he also begins to improve and work on his voice particularly in karaoke. He also starts to learn to like new musical styles like rock/hard rock (Shiina Ringo, Hyde), r&b (Utada Hikaru, BoA). This journey will be an opportunity to immerse himself into new tendencies.
2004 – Tsumi
Now back in Paris, Edmond starts the composition of his new album “Tsumi”. The first single to be released in that year is “dream multimedia single”, on the 14th February. The single includes two instrumental sessions and a previously unreleased remix from the album titled “Narcisse MLE”: TAKO. It also includes as a multimedia bonus a photo gallery and series of videos made in Paris, Tokyo and Agadir (where Edmond spent holidays when he came back from Tokyo).
On the 1st May his latest single is released entitled “Playboy”. For the first time Edmond releases an electro-rock song, quite avant-garde for this moment in time.
This will also be the year of his first live performance in the 13th arrondissement of Paris as he releases the single “Back in Club”, on 21st June. The single receives very positive feedback from the public. The song is written in three different languages; French, English and Japanese all mixed together.
Following the release of the three singles, “Tsumi” is released as a limited edition on 27th November with video CD including all the videos made and edited by Edmond during the year.
On 2nd July a new single is released: “B Human”. It’s on the limited edition (12 titles) where you will encounter the first version of Edmond singing “Bang Bang”, originally sung by Nancy Sinatra. Two versions of the music videos were made: one in 2005 and another one in 2007. Only the first version will go on to be released officially on Youtube.
Before leaving France definitively, Edmond releases his latest album including 21 titles: “Free” in limited edition with 9 different versions of the album cover.
2006 – Strawberry
At the end of 2005 Edmond arrives in Barcelona, Spain. On 3rd March 2006 he releases a Myspace-only available single: “No entiendo” (the first song written in Spanish by Edmond). A French version is also published on the same single: “Je ne comprends pas”.
On 14th July he achieves success with one of his biggest hit singles;”Strawberry” from the single “XS single VIP edition”. The audience is amazed with the new music video made with MS Paint for his “kawaii” world. In this year Edmond goes back on stage for 3 concerts in Barcelona. The first live at La Casa Pluto is even officially released on Myspace. This will follow a second concert at the same place and then another in the bar Barrio Candela. This becomes an occasion where Edmond discovers a new enthusiastic audience.
2007 – 666
On 24th March a new album “666” is released (referring to the satanic number and to one of Hyde’s albums). This album is meant to be retrospective in order to introduce the cosmopolitan audience of Barcelona to his previous titles. It also includes new titles such as a version of “I wish I didn’t miss you anymore” originally sung by Angie Stone. The 8th October sees him release a new single on Myspace entitled “Desconocido” only available on this webpage.
