Woodkid Plays Webster Hall Tonight

October 15th, 2013

Yoann Lemoine is a man of many hats: He’s a music-video director, a graphic designer and a singer-songwriter. Born in Lyon, France, Lemoine spent time studying in London before relocating to Paris. And while he was busy working with the likes of Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Lana Del Rey, Lemoine still found time to write and record a pair of atmospheric-pop EPs under the name Woodkid. His debut full-length, The Golden Age (stream it below), out this past spring, is a lush, orchestral concept album about the life of a young boy. And Woodkid (above, performing “I Love You”) is now out touring the world in support of it, which brings him to Webster Hall tonight.
