Raised in a Francophone home, attending English schools, and learning to play piano before he hit double digits, Geoffroy Sauvé has the perfect background to create his un-nameable blend of music. Add a master’s degree in industrial management of arts and music in Spain, music industry work and extensive travel while drinking in sounds and ideas that stretch from tundra to rainforest.
His music rummages through an international cupboard of sounds and time, dipping into throwback ‘80s synths, mixed rhythms, eerie folk-dusted vocals and guitars, and good old-fashioned pop, exploring each shelf and crevice to create smooth, lilting electro-textures and hypnotic melodies. His audience includes over 25 million listens to his 2017 album Coastline, which was long listed for the Polaris prize.
