Ben L’Oncle Soul is a 27 years old French man from Tours who, in 2010, released a great record produced by the French Motown. If I had to describe his music, I’d say he is a sort of French Amy Winehouse. The young man man light and fun versions of songs like Seven Nation Army, Barbie Girl (remember? big hit from Acqua in the 90’s) and he even recorded a cool version of Sympathique, by the Pink Martini.
In his debut record, entitled Ben L’Oncle Soul, there are also original songs and everything sound deliciously light and it always puts a smile on my face. His live concerts are full of life and even his back vocal singers dance copying that amazing Temptations style. Not to mention that his video clips are always very cool with a vintage, retro look and great art direction.
