Biography


Séverine de Close sings little words for great stories. Her songs are like one page novels. A few verses and stanzas, she does not need much more to tell stories in music and adventures from every angle. From feet to rhymes, from hymns to love, to life. It is with her guitar, a symbol of freedom, that Séverine de Close whispers her melodies to her ears. Once on stage she reveals her poetic and romantic universe in complete privacy, forgetting her shyness.


Séverine de Close

Descendant of Esus and Artio, the fairy forest she knows pretty well. Poetess of the 21st century, where her attachment to authentic values and the omnipresence of connected technologies intersect, it is at the crossroads of these paths that Séverine de Close is found. As a child, somewhere in the middle of one of the largest forest in France she already imagined fairy tales or wondered about the meaning of life, and it could last ... hours. And all this not far from the house of Hansel and Gretel. Because yes, it really exists! With a carpenter's grandfather, wood in all its forms was never far away. It is he who manufactured, more than half a century ago, the wooden boxes that she uses to transport her material. Today the wood is in her hands: guitars and other instruments accompany her on stage.
