Hailing from Paris, Laurent picked up the guitar at age 12. After a solid year of Classical training, his wantingness to improvise drove him to play Rock Music.
Although just a teenager, his adventurous spirit brought him across the Channel to explore the U.K.s burgeoning New Wave/Rock Scene, where he immediately formed a band and started performing in London and its outlying area. While playing out at night, his days were spent recording and producing with the likes of Keyboardist David Greenfield (The Stranglers) and Saxophonist Kevin Flanagan (Pinkfloyd). Three years later, Laurent is back in Paris performing Club dates in his native city and along the French Riviera.
