WHITE FROM BLACK

YOUNG TALENT SPRINGBOARD 2018 WINNERS

Bound by both friendship and their common passion for music, pianist Michaël Vigneron, bassist Benjamin Clément and drummer Simon Prudhomme met in Rennes in 2016 and created the acoustic and electric trio “White From Black”. Influenced by a multitude of genres, from jazz to hip-hop via rock and electro music, they recorded their first EP titled “Where Is Africa” and performed on the “Jeunes & Jazz” (Young & Jazz) stage the following year. In 2018, the consistency and uniqueness of the trio’s sound seduced the Young Talent Springboard jury, who crowned them as the winners of a solid boost in the distribution and professionalization of their work.  White From Black’s first album will be released in the fall of 2019.
