"They say I’m an underground singer, which sounds cool so I decided to agree.
And here I am, underground singer. Singing love songs after dark on cult albums.
Quite underground, isn’t it?"

(Gilles Snowcat, 2020

Gilles Snowcat

9 facts

Did you know?
1- Aquarius born on Mardi Gras day.

2- Launched his troubled AWAKEN project in high school, early 1988, with an old Crumar synthesizer, a detuned piano and some bad (but tasty) mixes of booze.

3- Recorded Memories Of A Teenage Cat early 1989, an urban blues vaguely inspired by the suburbs of the city in winter.

4- Enneagram type 4 (occasionally trying to step into type 8's shoes for fun). You've been warned.

5- Designing some massage music too, and hypnosis music...

6- Making you dance with colourful EDM / Trance music, even wearing the costume of beatmaker... sometimes.

7- Wrote a book, The Rock Star Paradox, in order to help you shy musicians to unleash your inner rock star.

8- Signed by the Japanese label it's Oh! MUSIC but created his own vanity label We See Limes for the only sake of giving his ego some pleasure time.

9- Has 9 as lucky number. Cat.


When Gilles is on stage with the usual suspects,
you never know what might happen. He doesn't either.
