La même histoire
Le Meilleur de Moi
Born in Paris and a drummer by training, Michael Jacob is a songwriter and performer.
His first influence, at the age of 13, was Stevie Wonder.
In 2013, he produced his first EP, “Blue” arranged by Julien Cohen and with guitarist Bruno Caviglia. This was followed by “Prelude to love” in 2015, the single “I can feel” in 2016 and “Moonlight” in 2017, a nine-track album with funk and soul influences.
In 2020, he surrounds himself with a string quartet and Cuban musicians for his new project “More”. With themed variations around “I Live For You” (his most complete composition to date), “I Wonder (where you are)” and the very personal “The Lonely One”, “More” has the ambition to make those who listen to it travel in as many musical universes as songs. “More” was released on Oct. 15, 2020. Two music videos were shot for “I Wonder (where you are)” and “I Live For You”.
In 2021, Michael Jacob began a shift to sing in French. Initially via a cover that was close to his heart (“J’irai Jamais Sur Ton Island”, by Fabienne Thibeault), which was recorded with ZikCorner (Smart Music Tour) which was released on Dec. 8, 2021 and a single (“Le Meilleur De Moi”) which was released on February 11, 2022 with 80s sounds and for which he surrounded himself with a lyricist (Fabrice Haddad) and his arranger (Julien Cohen).
At the end of August 2022, a second single (with the same team) was released. Imbued with soul and funk music, the aesthetic of “La Même Histoire” still combines the warmth of the analog instruments of the 80s with the melodic elegance of the new French scene. A shocking, dancing and singular cocktail that tells us the irony of a love story, where each difficulty resonates like a déjà vu. A clip is also to be discovered.
