Third Project Issued In December 2010 on Young Pals Records,
Ayhan Sahin’s Compositions in French
French master of entertainment—actor, singer, songwriter, host and voiceover talent—Lybert Ramade is releasing his third musical project “Une autre chance” in December 2010, on Young Pals Records. The album comprises songs composed by New York-based songwriter/producer Ayhan Sahin, sung in French.
Lybert Ramade began his musical career in the 1990s via baroque opera vocal “Four saints in 3 acts,” directed by Jean Claude Arnault, as a baritone-bass, a rarity in the genre. From there, he transitioned to dance-floor hit “Can You Feel My Luv.”
He also sang a duet with French icon Sheila on “Latino Flavour,” followed by debut EP, “Lybert,” produced by Eric Priva, in which he composed all lyrics. Continuing a flair for diverse projects, Lybert Ramade then returned to the stage, at the Article Theater, where he starred in the musical “Akoustik,” followed by a concert series at the Theater of Nesle in Paris.
First full-length album, “En haut là-bas,” was released in 2009, comprising 12 French- and Spanish-language songs, produced by Jean-Philippe Crespin. It offered a mesh of pop, Latin and electronic music.
Meanwhile, Lybert Ramade has studied acting in Paris and New York, and seasoned his chops in productions of Tchécov’s “La noce,” directed by Michel Praxis; and “Psychose,” a play co-written with Nikola Pareienty. Among film roles is “Prête moi ta main,” directed by Eric Lartigau; and TV appearances in “Nightmare,” “Opération Saint Esprit” and “Alors.”
Highlights of Lybert Ramade’s upcoming album “Une autre chance,” recorded in New York, include “Ecoute moi,” the jazz-infused radio-ready opening track; frenetic dance toss-ups “L’heure des heros” and “Je suis comme je suis”; elegant ballads “Plus loin” and “Si jamais”; playful pop finger-snapper “Laissez moi”; and pop confection “7 vies.” The project also includes English-language track “Another Bad Mistake,” a duet with French-Canadian chanteuse Karine Hannah.
