Wax Tailor aka JC le Saout, made a remarkable impact worldwide with his debut “Tales of the Forgotten Melodies”. A sweeping, cinematic hip hop album that had critics citing similarities to DJ Shadow, RJD2 and Portishead, “Tales” propelled this Frenchman to stardom in his home country and his debut was heralded as Radio Nova`s ‘Album of the Year’ in 2005.

An artist’s second album is often seen as the moment of truth. With “Hope & Sorrow”, released in summer 2007, Wax Tailor confirms his musical identity. Often categorized as trip hop or downtempo hip hop, Wax Tailor breaks musical barriers using a sonic palette to demonstrate his life chronicles tainted in soul, jazz, and funk.
