Philippe Katerine

A french singer-songwriter known for his eccentric presence, high-pitched vocals and absurd humor, who describes himself as a melodist rather than as a straightforward musician.

A french singer-songwriter known for his eccentric presence, high-pitched vocals and absurd humor, who describes himself as a melodist rather than as a straightforward musician.

Born Philippe Blanchard in 1968, he began releasing music under the name "Philippe Katerine" in the early 90's with a series of records composed of short songs, bringing a fresh and bittersweet perspective to french chanson. In 1999, he released two records, Les Créatures and L'Homme à trois mains which further expand his sound with the notable inclusion of bossa-nova influences. He followed these albums with Huitième ciel, once again with recurring collaborators The Recyclers.2005's Robots après tout brought him more public attention than ever thanks to the success of its humorous single "Louxor j'adore" ; it is an electropop record filled with darkly comedic songs.

Since then, Katerine has achieved a place of his own in the french music scene thanks to his always renewed approach to songwriting, as seen in albums like the sketchbook-like Philippe Katerine in 2010, the disco-infused Magnum in 2014, and the minimalist Le Film in 2016. « hide
