Born in Caen, France, Antoine started his musical journey at the early age of 6, by playing cello. After 12 years of conservatory studies, he decided to switch to electric bass. It’s only after 3 years of playing that he got accepted into the prestigious Berklee School of music, with the European scholarship.
During his time at Berklee, Antoine developed a great versatility and became comfortable and playing in a wide range of musical styles with authenticity, from Gospel, Afro Cuban, jazz to neo soul or Arabic music. He has studied with Victor Bailey, John Patitucci, David Fuzcinsky and Bruce Gertz to name a few.
