Songwriter, composer and singer, CadiJo discovered the harmonica through Neil Young (Harvest) and blues thanks to Sonny Terry
He started out as an accompanist to the English bluesman Chris Shaw (singer-guitarist), and rapidly moved on to become a singer-harmonica player, backed by his brother Michel on the guitar – a big admirer of Gary Davis, Mance Lipscomb, Doc Watson and Ry Cooder – and Michel Foizon (Blues and trouble), a specialist of "finger picking", ragtime and jazz. A CD of acoustic blues entitled Le Troisième Homme was recorded with Michel Foiz.
The friendship, advice and encouragement of Mox Gowland motivated CadiJo to commit himself wholeheartedly to blues.
His solo performance at the Trophée Honner 88, Homage to Sonny Terry caught the attention of Toots Thielemans, who awarded him 1 st prize on the set of the International Festival of Living Music, just before the concert given by Sammy Price and Jay McShann.
Next, CadiJo flew to Canada where he accompanied the Chicago pianist Johnny "Big Moose" Walker, got into the Toronto blues scene, played with Buzz Upshaw and met Albert Collins and Jeff Healey.
His repertoire developed and changed to become richer: drums, bass, guitar, sometimes piano and trumpet. Two CDs were recorded: Rester Tranquille and Blues au Comptoir, both praised by the specialist press. The magazine Soulbag rated both of them as the best European Blues CD. With the popularity of sideman, Cadi Jo accompanied the famous Memphis Blues artist Keith B. Brown (the star of Wim Wenders’ film The Soul of a Man) around Europe, winning the praise of David Evans, the internationally-renowned musicologist, for the quality of his harmonica play.
His ability to adapt to a variety of formulas and his special sensitivity make CadiJo a remarkable artist on the Blues circuit in France.
CadiJo developed a show based on French songs (classics and own) called "les chansons de pierrot", that gives the audience the feeling to be in
cobblestone street café in a village of France..
