Magnetic singer

Nosfell may be the best voice of today's French music. He can do everything with his voice : ethereal high-pitched like Jeff Buckley or Bjork, heart breaking folk-blues like Ben Harper, but also human beatboxing, and even sometimes avant-garde like Meredith Monk and west-african music... all in the same song!

He has a very personnal and mysterious universe, between Tim Burton and Brothers Grimm's :children's fears and dreams, violence and beauty of fairy tales told in captivating and experimental songs. Nosfell sings in French and English but mostly in Klokobetz, a language he created.
