Broken Back

The trajectory of Broken Back (Jérôme Fagnet’s stage name) looks like a boxing film screenplay. It tells the story of a young man who followed a promising career path who experiences physical collapse and fond salvation in music and major success as a result. Broken Back is the turning point in this dreamlike journey. The self-titled first album is filled with twists of fate, resilience and happiness regained.

The Breton artist had already defied expectations with his 2015 EP Dear Misfortune, Mother of Joy. Elegant, effective and illuminated, his work sits somewhere between alternative and pure pop, a hit with the press, radio and festival crowds (Solidays, Francofolies, etc.) that has taken him to some of the most prestigious stages in France (Le Trianon, Café de la Danse).

A world of space, sunshine, vast panoramas and a knowing depiction of ordinary and ephemeral life—these are Broken Back’s gifts to his generation. Is the current climate all depression and fear of dark days to come? Broken Back soothes the wounds, comforts you, guitar in hand, with a silky beat behind lyrics which speak of hope and joy, bringing blue skies where it was gloomy before.
