Chicken Fried is Florent Dufour (vocal/guitar). It's American music.
Deeply influenced by country music, singer Florent Dufour is also fans
of rock music, blues, hard rock, jazz and other kinds of American music.
The concept is indeed an original one: he offer a unique show that combines
music (both compositions and cover songs, among which you'll find Garth
Brooks, Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, Hank Williams , Keith
Urban, Josh Turner) with historical knowledge (story-telling about American
music). Their strength comes from an overflowing and communicative energy
serving a timeless music, made to be played unplugged and listened to.
The lyrics are taken great care of since Florent's specialty is... writing.
their words are tough, sometimes humorous, but always sound true. Their
work is based on melodic research too, on associating the best tune
with the best music.
His love for the USA emerged from his numerous trips there more
than 35 States visited. Fond of the United States' western sceneries,
of its culture, of its people, of its music, Florent perfectly know
how to express and share their passion.
Florent claims to be influenced by cult guitar players such as Van Halen,
Brad Paisley, Keith Urban. He is a specialist of country music in France
and organized several conferences on this specific topic around the
country. He hosts a country music show on TV on TLM in Lyon,
the only channel opened to country music.
Florent challenge styles and trends in order to deliver pure music.
