Theo Hakola

An american in Paris (Un américain à Paris) - (english version)

1 hr 35 min / Published

VIPop #20

Theo Hakola is an invigorating soul ... This American writer-singer-songwriter who has been living mainly in France since the mid-70s has become one of the leading figures of the French rock scene over the years and has just released an album "Water Is Wet" of incredible fullness ... Wouldn't his secrets lie in a deep acuity of vision, an indestructible faith in the human being and a sense of humour that is so life-saving ? 

Theo Hakola est une âme revigorante ... Cet écrivain-singer-songwriter americain qui vit principalement en France depuis le milieu des années 70 est devenu, l'air de rien, au fil des années, une des figures tutélaires de la scène rock hexagonale et vient de sortir un album "Water Is Wet" d'une plénitude inouie ... Ses secrets ne résideraient-ils pas dans une profonde acuité du regard, une indestructible foi dans l'humain et un sens de l'humour tellement salvateur ?
