Woodkid is French musician / video director / graphic designer Yoann Lemoine. The music of Woodkid shows a universe of fragile grace and raw beauty. It is epic pop with a powerful mounted symphony. Woodkid walks with the shadow of Antony and The Johnsons, as they could be kindred spirits of the voice. You can also hear the pretty folk influences of New York and a melodic brilliance that leaves more than a glimpse of the song writing talent of Lemoine (which could flirt somewhere between Neil Hannon and Bonnie Prince Billy). Woodkid's full-length album "The Golden Age" available on CD 10/20.
