Tout est joli /

All is pretty

pop song

On the menu, musical fireworks combining pop, rock, blues and progressive country!

Duo from the start, Thierry Devillers and Michel Debrulle, formed this variable geometry group in 1990. The lyrics are always signed by Thierry Devilliers and up to now, they have issued 3 CDs, each one with a different crew:

 

‘(…) All is Pretty or Tout est Joli, it’s the same thing. Musical poetry mixed with humour and irony, intersected with hope, with doubt on a base of the rhythmic photography of our society. Timeless music surfing on the same wave as the famous Bob Dylan. (…) The duo formed by T. Devillers and M. Debrulle opens its doors to young talented musicians. Their music never ceases to evolve until becoming a genre in itself. Unclassifiable, it is true. We ask for more (...)'

Régine Kerzmann

 

Thierry Devillers ‘(...) forms the songs of his dreams, of what he reads, of his waking delirium, of his view of the world and the unsavoury. In English or in French, he writes and songs with humour and irony about what he thinks, of what he doubts, of what he secretly hopes beyond hatred. His rock is simple but alive, timeless music which crosses the decades and which swarms here and there between John Cale, Randy Newman, Talking Heads or Bob Dylan'
