Louis de Mieulle Louis de Mieulle

Born and raised in Paris, France, bassist/composer Louis de Mieulle started his musical education at 7, playing the cello. After switching to the bass guitar, he eventually graduated from the National Conservatory of Paris (classical writing) and the American School (jazz), and then moved to Boston to attend the Berklee College of Music.

In 2006, he won a composition contest with the comic opera “Tres Para Una”, co-written with Augustin d’Assignies and Edward Greaves.

2011: first solo album released. “DEFENSE MECHANISMS”, recorded in New York City with prodigies Matt Garstka (drums) and Casimir Liberski (piano). “Is there such a thing as “math-jazz”? I’ve no idea, but it will have you tapping your toe and scratching your head at one and the same time. (...) An engaging and sometimes challenging, but always entertaining listen” (Roger Trenwith - DPRP)

2015: “Stars, Plants & Bugs” released through Dalang!records. “An instrumental concept album that transmits the natural and cosmic themes of the album title through a music that is both intellectual but at the same time easy on the ear.” [Roger Trenwith, TPA]

2017: DUAL EP released in collaboration with drummer Matt Garstka. All drum grooves and concepts developed by Matt Garstka and recorded first. All melodies and harmonies added by Louis de Mieulle afterwards.
