Early Life

Sioul was born in Martinique on the 2nd of July 1973. At the age of three, his parents moved to France where they founded a folk music society for Reggae and West Indian music 'Cannes a Sucreses'. Sioul travelled all over France sharing these traditions with people. Growing up in such a musical environment Sioul learnt to appreciate a variety of music from an early age and was playing the piano, keyboard and drums by the age of 12. At school he composed tracks and songs for his pop band Atlanta. Sioul's interest in different genres developed and he became a huge fan of U2, Jean-Jacques Goldman, Michel Berger, Depeche Mode and AHA, all of whom gave him great inspiration.

Career

During the early 1980's rap music was born. Sioul worked with artists in the studio and toured with bands, such as Saian Supa Crew and Fun, often accompanying them on stage on the keyboard]]. During his spare time he continued to compose songs, heavily influenced by Electro. By the late 1990's Sioul's work started attracting attention from record industry professionals who worked with him on a variety of projects including Cunny Williams ‘Come Back To Me’ and the Sugababes french version of ‘Stronger’. In 2002 Sioul was approached by Universal Music to take part in ‘Star Academy’ as a vocal coach and producer. Similar to the UK version of ‘Fame Academy’ Sioul worked on TF1’s talent show for the second series and produced the single ‘Musique’, the shows anthem selling 2,000,000 copies of the single and the album. The highest selling single the show has produced to date.

Following this stint on television Sioul moved to Dubai to work for CSM and Spellbind Records as an A&R, producer and concert promoter for artists, predominantly Nervcecell and Juliana Down, in the Middle East. Sioul soon realized the limitations of working in Dubai and missed the International Music Industry. Following a year in France rekindling his old network of industry contacts he produced a track featuring Snoop Dog in L.A. and later managed and produced the project Marc Antoine & Fanny J's remix of 'Kole Sere' in France. Antoine and Sioul decided to work together as artist and manager and produced 'Rester Seul' which was released shortly afterwards following a deal with Universal Music in France. Following this success Sioul negoitiated a contract with EMI where Marc Antoine was given the part of 'Little John' in the biggest musical in Europe, Robin des Bois, directed by Fichier:Michel Laprise.JPG ( Madonna, Cirque du Soleil ) and produced by Gilbert Coullier Productions
