“Five Minutes With” alternative pop singer, NOVEMBER

Genre takes a back seat to emotional lyrics and deep, powerful vocals for NOVEMBER, the solo project of Grégory Yves. Also an actor of the stage and screen, theatricality is central to NOVEMBER’s artistic vision. With influences like FKA twigs, Lady GaGa and Depeche Mode, his moody sound flows and shifts but always tells a rich and vividly powerful story.
