Loving music as long as he can recall, the desire to play came suddenly and when Félix picked up his first guitar at 15; this is when the story began...

The French Brittany raised, Switzerland based 24-year-old singer-songwriter-guitarist was inspired by musicians like Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Pink Floyd.....his style embodies those influences but with his own inventive riffs, moody melodies and outstanding solos.  In short contemporary blues-rock at its best!

In 2018, Félix was special guest on the Wishbone Ash 49th UK Tour and played to around 10,000 music fans at 28 venues across the country with his band.  His adventure with Wishbone Ash exceeded his expectations and after receiving an amazing response from audiences, it wasn’t long to have Félix back on UK shores.

His first stand-alone UK tour in April 2019 proved so successful with music fans, he returned to the UK for another tour in November in the same year.  Check out Fabrication’s review of his packed show at Nice N Sleazy in Glasgow.

Fast forward to 2020 and what a great start to the new year...

On 26th January at the “Giants of Rock” in Minehead, Felix was voted best act on the Introducing Stage by the audience and as a result of this, has been invited back to play a main stage in 2021

Multi-Award-winning American Blues guitarist and singer-songwriter Samantha Fish was thrilled to announce Félix Rabin as special guest on her 22 date European Tour in February and March 2020.  On the second show of the tour in Leeds, National Rock Review said;  “On the Watch out blues fans there’s a new kid on the block, and you are going to be hearing a lot more about him in the coming months.  The Swiss-based artist may be a relative newcomer on the circuit, but tonight he certainly made his mark in Leeds.”  Read the full review at http://www.nationalrockreview.com/concert-reviews/samantha-fish-felix-rabin-at-the-brudenell-social-club-in-leeds

On Friday 17th April, Félix releases his new six track EP 'Pogboy', now available for pre-order from his official website: www.felixrabin.com/store.  Recorded in Los Angeles, Félix enlisted the services of recording engineer, Ross Hogarth, whose credits include Van Halen, Ziggy Marley, REM.  The unusual name of the EP was derived from a guitar effects pedal.  "While I was recording those songs, there was one guitar pedal effect that I ended up using a lot called the Pog," recalls Félix. "Ross asked me why I was using so much of this effect on almost every song.  I told him that I just really liked it and that’s when Ross came up with the nickname Pogboy!  This is a great achievement and a huge project for me,” says Félix.  “I have been working hard on the recordings for over a year.  This is only the beginning.”

On Pogboy, Ramzine said; “Songs of love in the main, and we know the French like nothing better than pontificating on that.  But it’s the songs that count.  They’re varied, textured, and act as a strong taster to Monsieur Rabin’s work.”  Check out the full review at http://ramzine.co.uk/reviews/ep-reviews/felix-rabin-pogboy/
