Olivier Libaux is a French songwriter and musician whose investment in music spans worldwide. Heavily influenced by English television and radio, Libaux developed a stronger connection to English art and culture than he did French. As a child, only at the age of six, he dove into classic rock and roll and music movements such as punk and New Wave before becoming a musician himself later in life, with the start of his band Nouvelle Vague, who celebrate their 15th anniversary this year. Over time, he traversed through the evolutions of pop music, indie, 1950’s jazz, and Bossanova. Amidst this journey of sound exploration, he started his professional career as a musician in 1989 when his first band, Les Objets, (a French Pop band singing in French, influenced by The Smiths and The Pale Fountains) signed to Columbia Records.
