Geyster, aka Gaël Benyamin, presents his new musical trilogy: “Knight Games“. This journey takes us into a subtle blend of melancholy, well-being, and sensuality.
As a nightly knight, Geyster entrances the listener with fleshly sensations: crescendos, aerial lifts, intense moments. 29 tracks spread out over 3 records, surfing between rock, folk, jazz and funky westcoast genres.
Influences are sharp and numerous. Here and there we hear the ghosts of artists such as Supertramp, Led Zeppelin, Billy Joel, Paul McCartney, or even Christopher Cross. Melodies and production unfold an overall 1970s feel, a time when today’s flaws tended to be a quality.
This reminiscent « flutter » tone going on throughout the 3 records is a good example. Geyster expresses here his wide and paradoxal personality and takes us on a rich, magical and unexpected ride, reflecting the image of an artist who keeps doubting and exploring within himself. Volume I includes a duet with the legendary brazilian soul singer Ed Motta.
Geyster started his career in 1999 together with the singer Pernilla Grönlund. In 2004 they released their first album entitled “I Love 1984“ co-produced with Joachim Garraud which included the hit single “Bye Bye Superman“. But Geyster kept reinventing himself for each album, 9 in total, from the classic frenctouch pop-electro style of his early recordings to the classic rock sound of his previous album « “Down on Broadway“ in 2013.
His creativity pushes him to even design his own records artwork, direct his music videos, and conceptualize his own live shows. A singersongwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer who embodies the spirit of the “westcoast“ sound through a pop-jazz-rock music filled with sensations and aerial harmonies mostly heard back in the 1970’s.
Geyster shows his whole dimension when playing live on stage with his musicians… Stay tuned for some live shows coming up in your area…
