Pierre Sibille – Catch Me I’m Falling


Pierre Sibille announces the “organic” color of his new album, full of groove, harshed with his “pedalier basse” of his Hammond. These 15 titles represent the fruit of his labor on that special and legendary instrument, the B3.
That soul/blues music is an international language and for this brand new opus Pierre gathered exceptional musicians that actually speak fluently that language, from Richard Arame blues to Moses Patrou drums and from Michel Gaucher sax to Jaco Largent percussions… Jon Handelsman, David Walters, Pierre Chabrèle, Henri Dorina, Philippe Jardin, Jerome Buigues, Laurent Menier, Gabriel Equerre, François Gomez, Gérard Murphy, James Powel, Franck Taieb, Christophe Violland… Tee Two Mariani & Earl Broadfinger and the voices of Valerie Simpson, Kania Allard and Joniece Jamison.
The songs are filled with encounters and experiences, from “Lou full of joy” written for his little girl, to “light in Senegal” duet with Valerie Simpson, from Claude Lemesle who signs the version of “Smartphone Blues”, to his encounter with Jack Robinson who wrote the major part of the English texts. Please note also the very touching version of “Mon Camarade” originally sung by Léo Ferré.

That new album is rich of all of this.

Pierre Sibille is part of these rare musicians that managed to have settled with success in the USA. His album “Since I Ain’t Got You” was well received from the American critics. Thanks to his passion for playing the music and singing Pierre managed to convince Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson to let him in in  the Legendary « Sugar Bar » in New York City where he has been officiating as a regular artist for four years.

Back from a festival in Dakar, Senegal, Sibille composes « Light in Senegal » as a testimony of the living conditions of the children in the streets. This song abolishes the artistic, geographical, social and human barriers to create more than ever a freedom of speech and build a project of actions that will eventually free the Talibés out of misery and give them an education.  Many artists, touched by that cause, gave their voices such as Sister Coumbis, Make iT Real, Mano Camara… The message will travel up to NYC where Valerie Simpson did not hesitate to give her support to this project that she personally cares about.
