Sweetnighter (formely Reynold live) is Sam Rouanet’s latest project. The French-born multi-intrumentalist, DJ, and producer, individually going under the name Reynold, has over 20 years of musical experience and is an ambassador for spreading electronic music worldwide. Sweetnighter’s other members are the british songstress Sam Leigh-Brown and keyboardist Anthony Malka (The Hoo), completing the band’s sounds with warm and vibrant jazz vocals alongside with Rhodes and Moog keyboards. Their mission is to create a soulful and danceable atmosphere wherever they play. Their Electro, Pop, early 80s Afro/Funk sounds are inspired by artists like Roy Ayers, Moderat, Moodyman, Donald Fagen and beyond. The first Sweetnighter album is underway, and the expansion with second vocals planned.
“The Sweetnighter experience was a perfect, well-rounded and pleasantly deep affair.”
