Pierre de Gaillande has been around the world, and his music showcases his traveled origins. Gaillande was born in Paris, France, spent many years in California, and moved to New York City in 1994. As an artist, he has experienced so many different cultures and places around the world that it is no wonder he has become an artist with a variety of influences.
Pierre de Gaillande has taken his unique musical style and has released Bad Reputation Volume 2. This is an album unlike anything currently on the music charts, but before fans listen to Volume 2, they should understand the history behind Bad Reputation.
Gaillande embarked on a project to translate French singer Georges Brassens' songs into English. This is a very unique process for an artist to go through. Translating classic songs and still making their own is a one-of-a-kind process that not many artists have embarked on.
Bad Reputation Volume 2 is the second installment of this translating process. Stand-out tracks on the album include, "The Old Man," "The War of 14-18" and "Give Them All A Kiss."
This album is an entire listening experience, with the unique instrumentals and vocals it captures a time in music that is not heard now in 2013. Fans will enjoy this unique and out-of-the-box album if they give it a try.
