Cyril Gump est auteur/compositeur/interprète guitariste et mélomane.
Il découvre Ray Charles et le Rythm’n’Blues à l’âge de 12 ans, le début de son amour pour la musique. Il écoute alors les crooners tels que Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Dean Martin ou encore Tony Bennett et de manière plus large le Jazz.

A 14 ans c’est Jack Johnson, chanteur/guitariste hawaïen qui, grâce à ses accords chauds et efficaces, lui donne envie d’apprendre la guitare acoustique en autodidacte.

Durant son adolescence il découvre de nombreux artistes et genres (Folk/Blues/Rockabilly...) qui auront une grande influence sur sa musique plus tard : Bruce Springsteen, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Van Morrison, B.B King, Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, JJ Cale ou encore The Eagles mais aussi des artistes contemporains/indépendents parfois plus confidentiels (surtout en France) comme Josh Ritter, Kings of Convenience, Damien Rice, Donavon Frankenreiter, Ben Harper, John Mayer, Afie Jurvanen ou encore Joe Purdy.

C'est durant ses années au lycée qu'il écrit ses premiers textes en anglais, grâce aux artistes et genres musicaux cités plus haut, et se met à apprendre d’autres instruments (clavier, harmonica, percussions, basse) afin d’auto-produire ses chansons.

Aujourd’hui, il se produit dans les bars et restaurants mais surtout en concerts de rue qu’il apprécie particulièrement pour sa liberté et son contact atypique avec le public.

Cyril Gump is a French singer/songwriter, guitar player and music lover.
He discovered Ray Charles and Rythm’n’Blues at age 12, which was the beginning of his love for music. Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole or Tony Bennett are also the kind of artists he listens to at that time and on a wider scale : Jazz.

At age 14, he listens to Jack Johnson, Hawaiian singer/songwriter whose warm music and sweet chords made him want to start learning the guitar.

During his teenage years he goes on to listen to artists from various decades or genres (Folk/Blues/Rockabilly...) : Bruce Springsteen, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Van Morrison, B.B King, Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, JJ Cale or The Eagles. Those are some artists who will have a great influence on his music later on.
He also loves many contemporary artists sometimes less known, especially in France, such as Josh Ritter, Kings of Convenience, Damien Rice, Donavon Frankenreiter, Ben Harper, John Mayer, Afie Jurvanen or Joe Purdy.

He started to write his first songs in high-school. Songs written in English because of songwriters and genres mentioned earlier and the different styles of music he enjoys (Blues/Folk/Jazz…).
When he turned 20, he started to learn how to play other instruments (piano, bass, harmonica, percussions) so he can produce his own music.

Now, he plays in bars and restaurants where he covers those artists he’s been admiring for many years and became a « busker » playing in the street where he can perform freely.
