I needed some sort of a “bio page” on this website to look serious
My name is Louis Haessler, I am a 26 years old bass player coming from Alsace in France, currently living in London, UK.
I started playing music as a child on the piano, the saxophone and then the electric bass while I was discovering Jaco Pastorius and Richard Bona.
During my studies in Conservatoire of Strasbourg and the University, I took part in several projects and played the bass for many African artists, which gave me the opportunity to tour in France and abroad (Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Italy, United Kingdom, Indian Ocean…) and to immerge myself in these musics.
I released my first album when I was living in Mauritius in 2018, entirely homemade, “kind of a space trip with Frank Zappa, Joe Zawinul and Thundercat, taking off and landing on the African continent”, as described by my brother.
