Hi Everybody, My name is Philippe BOUTHEMY, I'm a singer - songwriter inspired by the american black music as SOUL, RN'B and above all FUNK, the one of the 80's that I particulary like / Nevertheless, I'm staying attached to french language concerning lyrics, trying to join both things : french words & groove. / Before being able to play and compose some Funk, I played other musical styles, in groups as a keyboard player & as a chorus-singer. Then I became the singer in a group playing funk. We performed in pubs in our local area. These were my beginnings as a singer, and it is at this time that I really found my style. Until then I was a simple musician often hidden behind my roots. I moved to the front of the scene and I immediately loved it, then I discovered the feelings which the song aroused in me, which was a turning point. Finally I started to compose, initially by seeking a little bit of me, in various styles, then gradually I moved naturally towards what I preferred, Funk from my childhood!!!
