My name is Hirion, a pen name which links to my mixed blood. My mother is Swiss mother and my father is Senegalese.
For me art reaches its goal when it brings us nearer to the peculiarities of life. That is maybe why I am always in search of something, in my music as well as in my life.
I have always been crazy about music and particularly fascinated by the fact that the rhythm and the melody that the (voice of the) singer can express go far beyond the lyrics of the song. That is why I could not help writing and interpreting my music: it was, and it is still, a way to give vent to my feelings.
The first songs that I have written all deal with a subject which has always touched me: freedom. It is a very wide topic: for example, I often find myself wondering how a man can by captive of his own prejudices.
I sing different genres: pop, soul, R&B, rock. I find it difficult to define myself within a musical genre because I do not believe in genres but in authors.
The work on my EP has been an experience which has allowed me to put together my first five tracks.
