Guillaume Eyango was born on Planet France, to a French Mother and Cameroonian Father.  He was introduced to music by the door of a Gospel choir and his musical tastes are influenced by such artists as Bobby McFerrin, Kim Burrell, Aretha Franklin and Take 6.  Guillaume has been developing his own style for over 20 years now and works actively as a vocalist/arranger/composer. 

 

He has made a living over the past 15 years as a highly sought-after and respected touring musician and session vocalist.  He has performed and recorded with a wide array of musical stars, including Manu Dibango, Marcus Miller, Mark Ronson, Kool & The Gang, Véronique Sanson, Yannick Noah, Amel Bent, FM Laeti, Horace Andy, MC Solaar, Liz McComb, Jimmy Cliff, Craig David, Lionel Richie, Marianne Faithfull, Jason Mraz, ​ Christophe Willem, Yves Carbonne and Youssou N'Dour.

 

Whenever he was not on tour, Guillaume was involved in different projects, Bass & Voice duet albums (Seven Waves, released in 2007 & A Life, released in 2009) with Yves Carbonne.  Guillaume also produced, arranged and sang on a Hebrew Gospel album (Gospel Meets Hebraic, released in 2009) with the group Israspel.

 

He also wrote sketches of songs, worked on lyrical and melodic ideas, and collaborated with other musicians on original material.  These ideas would become his debut solo album Do it by Myself, released in 2013.  In 2014, Guillaume won The Grammy Academy's Amplifier Contest which is designed to support up and coming artists. His winnings included a recording session and professionally produced track with Grammy winning producer Mark Ronson.  He also performed at SXSW that year, opening for Aloe Blacc and Allen Stone. 

 

Guillaume is currently working on a Jazz album with Ryan Saranich, a remarkable multi-instrumentalist and composer.  He is also collaborating with French Harpist Rébecca Féron on unique renditions of cover songs as well as original compositions.
