One of the great things about the post-genre world that we find ourselves in is that, without the constraints of the old tribal affiliations and the generic rule-books, wonderful new musical experiments are becoming conducted before our very eyes. 

One of the most unexpected, and brilliant, pieces of genre gene splicing is happening in the streets, even as we speak. Having learned classical piano at The Conservatory from the age of six, it would seem that Beranger’s musical career was already mapped out. 

To find him now delivering his unique classical-meets-grunge to gathered crowds in the streets says as much about his views on following your dream, as it does about his approach to music.

Built on sleek classical lines, it is the dexterous piano work that is at the heart of the music but with a powerful, percussive playing style and a deep, vibrant voice, the music soaks up more than a touch of the Seattle sound and the result is a self-titled “Classical Grunge.” 

And 2017 sees his music growing further than ever before, as not only is a European tour on the cards, but his debut "The Kissed by the Light" EP has just been released on Spotify and iTunes and is now available worldwide.
