His story is reminiscent of that of Chet Baker: a jazz musician who discovers that he is a singer. Having accompanied Angélique Kidjo, Salif Keita, Jean-Louis Aubert, Alain Souchon, and even Vanessa Paradis, he made an impression both modestly and deeply. The fragility of his vocals immediately drove him to an intimate register, which today has become his strength. Albin de la Simone's last album was called Un Homme. The new one could have been called Une Femme, given the subject matter. It could also have been called Un Piano, since that is the common denominator of all his songs. In the end, he christened it L’un de nous, from the name of the most mischievous song on the album. His melancholy, and his wild streak, will cast a spell over the hall of the Montreux Palace as Albin de la Simone brings to life the characters in his songs.
