Born on an island on the French Atlantic coast, Yann Loisel grew up listening to Reggae, Blues, Jazz and Hip Hop. These early musical influences shaped his interpretation of Roots Reggae. His groove-based and clean composition are leaving the vibes and energy as the main drivers of his music, underpinning his committed and spiritual influenced lyrics.
Yann Loisel's debut album "Upon The Road" was released in 2022. Recording at Planet Earth Studio, the very heart of Berlin's Reggae scene, Yann Loisel was backed by internationally renown musicians and technicians for this project.
Beside a video-clip premiere on Reggaeville's Youtube channel and a review in Germany's biggest Reggae magazine Riddim-Mag, the album was played on numerous radio stations worldwide, including national broadcasting like Polskie Radio Czwórka (Poland), Reactor 105.7 (Mexico) and Deutschlandfunk Kultur (Germany) among others.
Yann Loisel has been curated one of the 5 best Reggae newcomers in Germany by the 2022 & 2023 Riddim Mag reader's poll and is currently to be seen live in different formations, as accoustic Trio and with band.

After several singles and the EP Upon The Road Part I, Yann Loisel finally releases the second part of his debut album on the 25th of November!

Backed up by the same crew as on Part I, Yann Loisel delivers five strong tracks in the second part of his debut album. Beside the single Rocky Road, released on October the 28th , Upon The Road Part II features four unreleased tunes.
In his new EP, Yann Loisel introduces the audience in a somewhat wider musical range. Although being dominated by a Roots Reggae vibe, Upon The Road Part II is rounded up by the soul-influenced love song Night With No Moon and the acoustic song Speak Up Your Mind. This Nyabinghi inspired track closes the EP with a deep and melancholic touch.

The EP is available on every streaming platform an can be downloaded on Bandcamp

After several months of work, the first part of Yann Loisel's debut LP „Upon The Road“ has been      released on the 9th of September!
Recorded in Germany, France and Mexico, Yann Loisel's debut is the result of a international collaboration with renown artists such as The Evolution Band, Lengualerta (Mexico), Longfingah and Sebastian Sturm.
Most of the recording work has been done at the very heart of Berlins reggae scene, the Planet Earth Studio. Mixed by Aldubb and mastered by Ganjaman, the songs were performed by members of the Evolution Band (Gentleman) and Tribuman on the horns (Naâman, Apple Gabriel, Earl16...). Produced by Alex Brechow (iLLBiLLY HiTEC), Upon The Road Part I presents a roots sound, far away from the common Reggae Clichés, yet at the core of this music. Putting electronic effects aside, the tunes are characterized by clean compositions and a live sound. English, Spanish and French lyrics navigate between energetic and committed tracks, positive vibration and melancholy.

Upon The Road Part I is available on every streaming platform and downloadable on Bandcamp!
