Hyleen    

Born in 1991, this singer-songwriter and guitarist from the French (French) coast, surprises us with the single Looking At, which belongs to the 2017 production B-SIDE. This was pressed by the French label La Note Bleue Productions and has 13 tracks. This album is available in Japan thanks to the label Sweet Soul Records. For this album, Hyleen was as always accompanied by recognised musicians of the local scene, with whom she had already performed several times. They are the drummer Nicolas Viccaro, the pianist Fred Dupont and the (counter) bassist Ben Asnar *.

Thanks to her talent and trajectory, Hyleen was part of Jam to the Wild that paid tribute to Nina Simone in 2015; was selected to be the opening show of renowned jazz and R & B singer, José James, at the famed New York jazz club Paris. However the show had to be canceled due to hearing problems on José James. She also shared the stage with French pianist Michael Lecoq for the Yamaha NAMM convention in the summer of 2017 in Los Angeles, California.
Despite her young age, Hyleen has always been surrounded by great artists. For her 2014 album, U & I featured English singer Omar, pianist Franck McComb and drummers Chris Dave, who has played for Adele, Erikah Badu and Robert Glasper among others, and Markus Parker, also known as The Nephew and musician of the band of legendary saxophonist Maceo Parker.
