podcast of the interview:
My first interview programmed for an artist Flore M, accompanied by Patrick Faller guitarist and composer of “This is Who i M”. He is honoured in this studio of RDL Colmar. A nice show where the artists were able to play some titles live.
A nice meeting also with David Baerst, who at the beginning of the show made a very nice introduction on the artist Flore M, that I share with pleasure.
“Live from the studio with Flore M
If there is one notion that seems to have been cut out for our guest of the day, it is, without a doubt, that of spirituality. Indeed, the singer Flore M has already forged a fine reputation for herself, borrowing from the various meanings of this term.
Religion, since the young woman comes from the effective and rigorous school of gospel, but also philosophy which (in this case) opposes matter to spirit.
Finally, the word spirituality also sticks to her skin, because it is a vector of meaning, hope and above all liberation. A liberation expressed in sounds and gestures on the regional scenes of Chicago, Detroit or New Orleans when a few innovative artists (answering to the names of Clyde McPhatter, Hank Ballard, Etta James, Ray Charles, Bobby Womack, Sam Cooke, Salomon Burke or even Ben E. King) set out to clash their rhythm and blues with the sacred and secular music of their forebears, thus creating soul music at the end of the 1950s.
This is a genre that is still growing in popularity today, thanks to a large number of new musicians from all over the world. In their own way, they are revitalising a whole genre that is in no need of a facelift.
Flore M is one of them and will demonstrate this during the following hour, which will allow her to go back over her career and her aspirations… While presenting her latest album “This is Who i M”.
A record made up of original compositions, often elaborated with the one who still accompanies him here, the guitarist Patrick Faller.
Songs that all seem to have been written to heal our soul… On Route 66.”
