The spring fresco
Samuel Devin was born in 1998 in Evreux. A saxophonist, guitarist and pianist by training, he studied at the conservatory and musicology at the Sorbonne. Halfway between poetry and music, he highlights his texts through tales with the colours of his influences: jazz, variety, text-based songs (Brassens, Barbara, Félix Leclerc…) and the fantasy of gesture inherited from popular traditions. As a singer, he tackles serious and committed registers, but also lighter and more intimate themes, with the aim of offering a varied palette of interpretations of musical journeys, ranging from medieval poetry to contemporary compositions.
In 2020, he will publish a book of poems in the Poets’ Club collection. Between 2019 and 2021, he will release a trilogy of original audio stories entitled Les Décontes, followed by a variety album, Je chante par couverture, in 2022.
