And Up… And Down… Life Is A Swing I’m Excited To Ride.

We may all be living in different realities, working in different fields, passionate about different things, but one thing is the same for all of us: Every day we live emotions and feelings that are triggered by what happens around us and in us. This past week I lived plenty of different emotions! First, it’s kind of special and funny to wake up to the sound of a hungry horse! Lol!! Queen, our pony, is definitely adding to the happiness of my surreal life! She’s proof on four legs that the most unexpected little dream is possible and can take life in a way I couldn’t even imagine!

Darkness rose in front of my eyes… but I wasn’t afraid.


At this very moment, I’m sitting alone in the biggest room of our Church/Studio, except for the dim light right above my head, it’s dark around me … In this humongous sanctuary, my space feels as small as a bubble as I have my headphones on, surrounding my mind with the rough cut of the new song we have been working on this week… I’m absorbed completely by the music, my soul beats with the drums, my blood flows with the guitar melodies, my head dances with the bass, my fingers are writing this blog as I would play on my synths and organs… so peaceful…nothing can come between the music, this blog, you and I… until Ben jumps beside me and scares the hell out of me!lol… he’s a champion at that…I hate that! lol but I love him…so I guess it evens out.

Family, Studio time, Music creation, Dreams…


My dear family, the one I chose, the one I’ve been chosen, the one I believe in, the one that believes in me…

It’s easy to think that we are separated because our reality is different, because our daily lives don’t look alike, because we can’t talk or spend time together as much as we would love to. Of course our brothers and sisters living in other countries can feel this way, but I can tell you that it’s also how we can feel sometimes even here at the YFE HQ within our house, the close crew, the ones sharing the same roof, the same table. As we are back in studio recording right now mostly keyboards, lead guitars and vocals (oh… and we also have a section called “Chaos”!lol…), we are again quite isolated in the cocoon of the Studio. The five guys and I, Big Byrd and Sean are spending all day in that one room, letting the music we carry inside of us flow freely, trying every idea, encouraging each other to take part in what we believe is our destiny. We get out of the studio only to grab a coffee, a tea (for our English producer Sean), to go pee and we take a short break for lunch and dinner giving us the chance to see if it’s raining or sunny as we walk the 30 meters between the studio/church and our house. This little time away from the mics and instruments is also our occasion to talk and share with the rest of the YFE crew who are working so hard in their office based in the YFE house… Do we feel separated sometimes?… I do. But I know how to break that feeling and first it’s by believing we are united by the love we decided to build, by the trust we have, and that we care for each other, by every little note, hug, short conversation, the inside jokes, and also by knowing we are all walking for a common dream to touch the world with our common vision, our common heart.
