As a singer songwriter, a record producer and a touring musician, Medi‘s career has already been filed with many joys.
Based on his instincts, he felt the urge to take a 360° turn and moved back to the French Riviera in 2014 to start a new music company by the name of Dime On. A record label some would say ? Way more than this in Medi’s opinion. A creative community, a familly in wich the Nice native would not only be able to develop his own music, shows and artistic visions but also the ones of many other artists.
As the natural born entertainer and singer songwriter he is, Medi keeps singing his heart out wheather it’s on stage or in a recording studio. Dime On Studios to be precise. Where he started a whole new musical journey in June 2018 with “My Life“. An EP of 5 tracks that’s now reached about 750 000 streams, all recorded by himself with the help of Dime On fellow musicians and mixed by Nicolas Quere, recently responsible for the sound of The Artic Monkeys, Delgres and many more.
Rewind. It all kicked off for Medi when in 2006 he released his first album “Medi and The Medicine Show” produced by Dave Stewart and fully recorded in the London studios of the former Eurythmics.
Between 2007 and 2010, he was guitarist of the queen of electro, Émilie Simon, drummer and arranger for Charlie Winston , with whom he traveled stages around the world following the huge success of their “Hobo” album which sold over a million copies around the world.
In 2011, as a true leader of a “soul”, “rock and roll” and “feel good” spirit, Medi released « You Got Me (Moving) » his first solo album which was recorded in Los Angeles by grammy award winner Shawn Everett, produced by Tony Berg and including collaborations with guitarist and producer Blake Mills to name a few. The album flagship single « How Would You Do It » was an international success, followed by a tour of more than a hundred concerts including a headline show at Fuji Rock as the single reached number 1 airplay in Japan.
A second album entitled « One Is Not Enough » was born in 2014 and it was during that year that the Nice-based artist joined his hometown and became a producer by founding his own label Dime On with which he launched careers of artists such as David Zincke , songwriter from the UK, who’s first single “Oh My” and debut EP has been critically acclaimed.
Medi is a true entertainer never leaving the stage for too long, a songwriter, a multi-instrumentalist and recently became a music producer for big french acts such as Ben Mazué, Sophie Tith, Joyce Jonathan, or Frero Delavega for which he produced their number one hit single “Sweet Darling”.
Stay tuned for a career constantly on the move
