Smoky Eyes - Indie Rock, France (E89)

About: Smoky Eyes, very talented band from Grenoble

"Smoky eyes was created in 2009 by Bruno Jeanmart and Marianne Dien. At this time the band use to play some jazz covers (Diana Krall, Norah Jones...), and also composed some tracks.
During 2010, Guillaume Poupon and Paul Pouchard came to complete Smoky Eyes with guitar chorus and bass giving more rock influences to the band.
In 2011, Smoky eyes became complete with Anthony Cutrone at Drums. His stong style of playing make Smoky eyes's style more original.
The musical diversity of each musicians bring to the band their own identity, a mix of jazz, rock 70's, blues and even metal.
Today, Smoky Eyes count more than 20 original songs.
A first album will be recorded in 2012.."


1). How does autumn influence your music?
Just the number of beer drunk in the sun!

2). What book or movie has influenced your creative work the most?
Books and movies don't influence our music, this is our personal musical journey based on different social interactions.

3). Do you perform cover songs at your shows? If yes, what songs?
We used to perform songs of Diana Krall and Bob Dylan, but now we just play our own songs.

4). Were you good in school? Do you miss your school years?
OF COURSE we were. It is written on our faces isn't it? And if we miss our school years... Sometimes, maybe!

5). Would you like to be a superhero? What superpowers would you like to have and why?
Guillaume would like to be Zorro, and launch fireballs to eradicate the planet. Tony would like to be Spider-man, just to kiss girls with the head at the bottom... Marianne has always dreamt to wear long iron nails like Wolverine or Freddy Krueger, to enter everyone minds! But more sexy of course... Paul would like to be Duffman, and gets unlimited beer. Then, Bruno don't like superhero, because their costumes are always so cheesy...
Raconter sa vie c'est pas bien.
