  • ALIAS (QC, Canada)

    Raised in the picturesque town of Aix-en-Provence in south France, ALIAS studied jazz at prestigious conservatoires in both Marseille and his hometown. But growing disillusioned with the strict rules being placed upon him, he decided to step out on his own, first to New York, then to Montreal, Canada, where he was enlisted as a contributor for hit TV shows including Big Little Lies and Sharp Objects, and worked as music director for Cirque du Soleil.

    So as the pandemic hit, ALIAS hunkered down and made his debut EP, It’s Not Funny So Stop Smilin’, an ambitious work where the rulebook went sailing out the window. Released via Simone Records in 2021, his first EP was swiftly followed by Jozef, ALIAS’s acclaimed debut that happened to mark a drastic shift in tone in his music. Which brings us to EMBRACE CHAOS, his latest opus to be released in April 2024. Like Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, ALIAS is both the genius and the monster on this record; the creator who hides behind the terror he’s unleashed.
