Cross-Channel Music is the indie pop-folk project of French London-based singer songwriter Pierre Lassegues.

After an early and unlikely viral hit in 2006 with a song about the professional swimmer Laure Manaudou – which benefited from the timely release of leaked photos – Lassegues was the frontman and songwriter of the Parisian band Bradford Musical, before moving to London in 2012.

There, he played bass in The Hertz Complex and Everything by Electricity, before deciding to go back to his love of song writing.

The album ‘Man in a Dream’ is the second release from Cross-Channel Music. It is an eclectic nine track journey through the indie music of the noughties. There are also collaborations with video artist Fluid. Lab and illustrator Yannick Rigour.

The songs span across a variety of styles. All in all, you’ll hear pop in all shapes and forms, but also blues rock, minor folk, funky beat and even experimental! – always in an indie style that should bring back memories to some!

The 9 tracks on the album were written in Paris between 2000 and 2012 and were mixed and mastered by Robin Downe and Loys Couet in February and March 2021.

This incredible album is packed full of brilliant vocals which will have you hooked as well as a chilled and unique sound. This combined with the instruments which capture your attention create an album which you will instantly fall in love with and there is no escaping from this masterpiece.

What I love the most about this album is how each track tells a story which and every track will have you hooked so much that you will listen to every single word without fail. The tracks go through so many emotions, the listener will instantly connect with each track, and I believe will relate to a lot of the lyrics.

This is an impressive album from a talented artist!

Great job!
