Oh mon dieu! This March, one of France's brightest pop-rock stars -M- (real name Matthieu Chedid) is set to perform live in Singapore for the first time, bringing his electrifying guitar sound and highly infectious energy to the stage at the Kallang Theatre!

Who is -M-?

Undoubtedly one of the most famous French pop stars

A gifted musician and composer with a killer guitar sound

A man who loves “love” and knows how to sing it
The English and the Americans may have invented Pop Music, but France owns some unique specimens of the genre. Matthieu Chedid, better known as -M-, is one of its prime examples. Popping up in the 90’s with a cartoon-esque look, an M-shaped haircut and a penchant for donning pink suits in the style of Prince or Elton John, -M- has since then been unabashedly reigning over the French pop rock scene.

-M- is the brilliant result of contemporary romanticism, sensitive songwriting and a devastating guitar sound. His half-real, half-disguised character has been captivating audiences for over a decade. He has filled up hundreds of concert halls, delivering grandiose performances in extravagant décors, won nine music awards and embarked on various musical projects such as the original film soundtrack of “Les Triplettes de Belleville” (“The Triplets of Belleville”) as well as collaborations with Vanessa Paradis, Amadou & Mariam and Sean Lennon.

-M- writes about love – but in a strikingly different way than everyone else does. Firstly, the name “-M-” sounds like “aime” (“love” in French). Secondly, -M- always manages to turn any love song or ballad into something devilishly sensual, whilst still retaining the magic of his agile and rhythmic guitar riffs.

-M- decided to drop the extravagant costumes and revert to his true form with the release of his 5th album “Mister Mystère” in 2009, which unveils a slight hint of darkness in contrast to his former masquerade. In 2013, -M- released “Il”, his latest album featuring an all-new line-up – simpler, more straight-forward and with a heightened rock sensibility.

This year, experience the magic of -M- as he heads to Singapore for the first time, bringing his electrifying live performance to the stage at the Kallang Theatre. Don’t miss it!
