Born in Saumur in 1982 and always evolving in the world of music, Benoît GAUGAIN became a professional musician (multi-instrumentalist) in 2003. During his life as an artist, Benoît was able to train with teachers and musicians professionals which allowed him to have had the opportunity to rub shoulders with a large clientele by touring many times in France and in neighboring countries. It is as a composer and a member of Sacem that he produces works in different universes (French and international songs) and for different audiences.
Trained in Jazz schools in particular in Tours and Tous en scène, and while continuing his tours, Benoît continues to improve his skills and thus acquire new skills.
In addition, the world of wine is not unknown to him because his father worked for 25 years in the wine industry.
