Geneva-born Nicolas Julliard decides to become Fauve in 1999. His previous non-career moves include various participations in great unknown bands such as Grammar & Use and Illford. Multi-talented and hyperactive, Fauve explores the margins of songwriting, blending pop, minimal electro, Broadway melodies, easy-listening and bossa-nova. A natural crooner, our man knows a good tune when he hears one and therefore tries to write good ones too. French magazine "Les Inrockuptibles" awarded him a nice spot in their annual compilation CD "Ceux qu'il faut découvrir". That was in 2004, and Fauve was then known as Sombre, God only knows why... Since then, Fauve has collected enough material to produce his first album, released in spring 2006 by Gentlemen Records.
In early 2005, Fauve also got together with Kid Chocolat and BellWald to create YYY, an Internet-powered label designed to host funny and weird musical experiments. (www.y-y-y.biz)
