Baptiste Lalieu, alias Saule is a talented young Belgian singer and songwriter. Adept at a minimalist style that features acoustic guitar, his music also introduces other sounds that always give faithful expression to the atmosphere created by his lyrics. His music has been influenced by some of the great French and Belgian artists like Georges Brassens and Jacques Higelin, but also by more recent performers like Tyo, Cali and Benabar. A hit discovery on the Francophone music scene in 2007, Saule has toured festivals in Europe and Quebec, bringing his musicianship and his talents as a story teller. Let's give him a warm welcome in Vancouver! In return he is sure to give us a fabulous "Saulo" performance
