songs of love and death

REZA is a singer-songwriter living in Paris and by extension the name of the band of musicians playing with him. Their music is commonly described as indie folk-rock. The singing is characterized by REZA's deep baryton-bass voice and usually romantic style of delivery. His songs are arranged and performed with a specific mixture of both intimate acoustic and wild electric atmospheres. Themes in REZA's lyrics include relationships, familylife, moving from one country to another, love and death. The usual line-up of the band on stage is acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards and drums though the recorded versions of the songs often include subtle string arrangements and other additionnal instruments such as keyboards, mandolin, pedal steel or banjo. Since 2006 REZA has performed more than 300 acts, solo or as a band, most of them in France but also in other european countries like Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and Switzerland. New album Tornado was released early 2015 with positive reviews in major indie music magazines in France.
