Véronique Gayot & Band

Veronique Gayot Band

FR | blues rock

Her unique voice exudes so much passion and raw energy that she has a loyal fan base not only in France, but now all over Europe. In 2020, she was also a guest live at the legendary WDR Rockpalast. In autumn 2023, Véronique Gayot released her band released their brand new album Be A Man .

From smooth to scratchy and somehow almost untamable - that's what it sounds like when Véronique Gayot sings the blues. In addition to the obligatory comparisons with Janis Joplin, the name Robert Plant from Led Zeppelin is often mentioned as a reference. That may be true. But in fact, Véronique Gayot has a lot more to offer. "Soul, skill and passion come together and celebrate the blues, which can also be a little soulful," wrote one reviewer about the 2018 debut album Wild Cat . The follow-up work Animal, released in 2021 , followed on seamlessly and expanded Véronique Gayot's spectrum towards classic rock and gospel.

While the albums are dominated by original compositions, the live program also includes cover versions such as "Gimme Shelter", "Sixteen Tons" or "Personal Jesus", which the Frenchwoman and her band always give a proper rocking makeover. Véronique Gayot has now convinced and delighted not only the makers of the WDR Rockpalast and its audience. " I experienced a small, petite person who gave everything, be it vocally or in terms of performance," reads a concert report from autumn 2021. "But the best singer, who also has excellent command of the harp, is no good if the men in the background don't do their best. But that was the case. The guys also gave their all, whether it was a slow blues or a hearty boogie. The necessary pressure was there, whether emotional or with the necessary power. Everything just fit together."

The musical accomplices are Yannick Eichert on guitar, Jérome Wolf on bass and Jérome Spieldenner on drums. Even if the three of them mostly work in the background, they have nothing to hide. Each of them is a proven master of his instrument. Guitarist Yannick Eichert in particular provides a taste of this, as he regularly gets the opportunity to celebrate his virtuoso skills in interplay with Véronique Gayot's energetic and powerful voice.
