Sébastien Tellier is a modern day enigma, a hirsute lothario, conquering hearts with soulful music that brims with a seductive élan. When not composing in his apartment, the Parisian has been shacking up with artists of international repute. Previous bedfellows include Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (Daft Punk), Quentin Dupieux (Mr Oizo), Philippe Zdar, SebastiAn, Tony Allen.
The writing process for each studio album begins in the same way. Changing his perspective on the world, Sebastien sets a new theme as the pivot around which his musical universe swirls. Reflections on childhood and family underscored his debut, the follow up played out to a skewed backdrop where politics reigns supreme. The emotive piano-led La Ritournelle emerged at this time, becoming the moment where Sébastien truly announced himself to the world.
With “My God is Blue” Sébastien seeks to unify his ’followers’ (fans) under the blanket of his message; love. A major pillar of Sébastien’s message is the notion of finding ones true identity through the supplantation of former ego with one of the individual’s creation. Always striving to present his oeuvre in a fresh and exciting manner, every show reflects the refreshingly individual nature of the man.
