JEAN MARC LERIGAB has not received any gifts yet
Jean-Marc LERIGAB Aka ” Mejay “, born in Paris and of west indies origin, grows in a family of four children in a Parisian suburb where he discovers the music at the age of eleven on an old piano “Gaveau” in the lounge of their apartment.
He works the instrument by trying to reproduce all that he hears on the radio or on TV, he acquires then a sense of the melody and the composition and then begins to record on a tape recorder, his first songs. At the age of sixteen, he’s in demand to play in his church beside a young small fourteen-years old drummer, his cousin WELCOME CHARLES. They form in the time a duet almost inseparable “drums/keyboards” and jam a lot together with many young musicians. At the age of eighteen, he founds his first group ” FAX 7 “, formed by seven musicians and singers in which he will play original compositions going of funk to jazz/rock to pop.
After six years of existence and several tours, the group records its first album : “Question mark”. Meanwhile, Jean-Marc discovers in Paris, the Gospel choir of Master Music, known today under the name of ” NEW GOSPEL FAMILY “, in which he will be in demand as singer soloist then as musician, arranger and composer. He will play with this group during several years on scenes like “L’Olympia”, “Le Palais Des Congrès”, “Le Zenith de Paris”, “Bercy” and “le Pavillon Baltard”.
The desire to be carried out in solo is made more and more feel but, married recently, he is found constrained to engage in a “money race” as a professional musician going of meetings studios in concert through France and Europe then on some Tv shows, he will thus accumulate many hours of flight as a singer, musician, arranger or songwriter for artists so different as varied like JALANE, ASSIA, LEADER VOCAL, CUNNIE WILLIAMS, FDY PHENOMEN, TANYA ST VAL, WELCOME-CHARLES, TRIBAL JAM, JULIE ZENATI, MATHIAS HEIMLICHER, NBA, PIERPOLJAK, TOWER OF GOSPEL, ANJA LEHMAN, SCOTT WALTERS, WILLIAM ST VAL, GOSPEL SANS FRONTIERES, MARCO AVESANI, AWAKE, LEAH BICEP, JEAN MARC REYNO, BRASS OF PRAISE, SHELOMITH, NEW GOSPEL FAMILY, JANINE B, JOHN FEATHERSTONE, PASCALE BENMANN, JOEL FILIN as well as in several gospel choirs. Strongly invested of a true faith in God through his son Jesus-Christ, Jean-Marc devotes today entirely his life and his talent of musician to Him.
