Johan Asherton

La force des tendres (The strength of the tender) - (french version)

52 min / Published

VIPop #27

Heureux ceux qui découvriront aujourd'hui l'oeuvre du musicien français Johan Asherton, ils appréhenderont là un artiste au talent et à la résilience infinis ... Commencée il y a plus de 35 ans avec son groupe "The Froggies", sa carrière est tout autant un modèle d'audace que de fidélité à lui-même ... Balancant toujours entre folk et rock, c'est essentiellement outre-manche qu'il a puisé son inspiration pour créer son propre espace musical ... Et si son choix de chanter en anglais a pu le desservir par moment, la cohérence viscérale de ce choix en fait à présent un atout certain ... Incontestablement romantique, mais jamais complaisant, cet univers-là se réinvente toujours sans ostentation ... La marque des Grands.

Happy those who will discover today the work of the French musician Johan Asherton, they will understand an artist of infinite talent and resilience ... Started more than 35 years ago with his band "The Froggies", his career is as much a model of audacity as of fidelity to himself ... Always balancing between folk and rock, it is essentially across the Channel that he drew his inspiration to create his own musical space ... And if his choice to sing in English may have been a disadvantage for him at times, the visceral coherence of this choice now makes it a definite asset ... Unquestionably romantic, but never complacent, this universe is always reinventing itself without ostentation ... The mark of the Greatest
