STORY

Jesus is my son is the solo project of Grégory Duby. This project is a desire for sadness, loneliness and power. It is a long trip where eternity is between notes. Jesus is my son impels the audience to listen contemplatively to the electric guitar.

Grégory Duby is a guitarist from Brussels (BE) active in the field of rock and improvised music. Besides his project Jesus is my son, he plays in the trio K-branding and records albums of improvised or acousmatic music. He creates the label FF HHH and he is one of the mainstays of Mandaï Distribution.

With Jesus is my son, Grégory wants to approach the idea of immortality, to render each event eternal. Thanks to this slowness, the time stretches itself and eternity may rush into this free space. The first release of Jesus is my son is the 4-title ‘Sacrifice Odieux’. The music of this EP is hot, suffocating, slow and desertic. April 2010, the album ‘Je suis Dieux’ is issued. With this second release, Jesus is my son’s music becomes more mystic, more aggressive, more distorded. The sound and the themes are close to Olivier Messiaen’s church organ music.

In February 2012, the second full album named ‘1914-1918’ is released. The theme of the album is the great war. This album is not about battles or politics. The scope of the album is outside the action. It relates the lifes of the soldiers between battles, the survival in the trenches, the fear to disappear. It tells also about decimated families, about the long silences before the fights. With this album the war is told through its non-events and gives it its real dramatic meaning.

In March 2015 and 9 years after the first EP: ‘Sacrifices Odieux’. the album is re-recorded and 6 extra tracks are added. The new songs were composed during the years following the 4-titles. Some tracks were finalized quite quick, some others were re-worked from time to time until now. This release as the 4-titles is an album of contemplation. An heavy, minimal and sweet album.

Jesus is son was invited by the American band Codeine to open for there shows in Belgium and in the Netherlands. Jesus is my son has also played with Stephen O’malley, Extra Life, Josef van Wissem, Cian Nugent, Neokarma Jooklo Trio, Carla Bozulich, Amen Dunes, Steve Gunn, …
