Benjamin Clementine

Grâce à S.R. j'ai découvert Benjamin Clementine, poète, ténor lirico spinto, pianiste, guitariste, qui mélange allègrement Nina Simone, Satie et Glass.

Quasi clochard à Paris, ce British black a été - heureusement - remarqué et je dois bien être le seul sur cette planète à ne pas le connaître déjà.

Comme dirait l'autre, better late than never.

I saw a girl in my class who had a toy piano.
I asked if I could play and she said no,
so I waited till she went for lunch and I took it home.
I played, I heard sounds, I just liked it, I didn't understand why.
The next day, obviously, I brought it back,
 after a bit of trouble with my parents.
I got into detention but that was one of the best
unforgettable moments of my life.
