"The grand alchemist of modern French pop"
- Montreal Gazette
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 11, 2012
(Le) Poisson Rouge is proud to announce that French rock icon Arthur H will be performing a rare, intimate show in New York at Le Poisson Rouge on Thursday September 27th.
Winner of the 2009 Pop/Rock Album of the Year Award at Les Victoires de la Musique, Arthur H will perform alone on the piano songs from both albums Baba Love and Mystic Rumba, released in the US in February 2012 to rave reviews.
Pianist, singer, and songwriter Arthur H has been hailed as the quintessential French chanteur, a musical heir to Serge Gainsbourg with echoes of Tom Waits and Boris Vian. Arthur H is known for his melodic, cracked voice, electrifying live performances, and lyrics that fuse poetry with sensuality and humor.
His singing is marked by a seductive musicality, delivered with passion and a charming nonchalance that, while distinctly French in style, transcends language. With musical influences that include Thelonious Monk, the Sex Pistols, jazz, blues, rock, electro, Middle Eastern, and gypsy music, Arthur H’s singular sound world has been compared to the striking paintings of Hieronymus Bosch—each album is a brand new trip, a new imaginative and sonic exploration.
