I am thrilled to share with you a new name and sound, Yves Paquet, who hails from Brazil. In the first video and song released from his new Indie album, “A Southern Tale” brings us a voice reminiscent of Sting and Colin Hay, melodic and powerful, and stylistically very much his own and a very listenable and beautiful song.
Southern belle in a southern tale
Oh nightingale, why did you flyaway?
Composer: Yves Paquet & Iskander Moens

Background: Since my first visit to the Carnac stones as a child, I’ve been fascinated by old legends, myths and tales. Later, traveling all over Ireland, England, Bretagne, listening to folk singers in the pubs, there was always something in that music that struck a deep chord in my heart. After Rolling Stone magazine labeled my song 25-28 last year as “folk”, I’ve started writing songs in that feeling.
And now the video. Tell me what you think. Enjoy!
