“Vyel” is the musical nom de plume of Vincent Lévêque, a Paris-based singer, musician and producer. His name comes from the English phonetic pronunciation of his initials.
Born and raised in Châlons-en-Champagne, France, Vincent began playing French horn as a child, and learned guitar whilst playing in various bands during high school and college.
He started to post his first covers and remixes of well-known songs on SoundCloud & YouTube in 2011. Five years later, his cover of Coldplay’s hit “Hymn for the Weekend” featuring Sophia Omarji got more than 1,000,000 streams on Spotify and 50,000 views on YouTube. As a result of the track’s success, BOXINLION, two DJs from Los Angeles then remixed the cover in a 4-minute trap-electro style production.
Many collaborations with other artists led to the release of two other covers such as “Faded”, featuring the French vocalist Emma Lachance and “The Greatest”, featuring Alissa Müller.
Vyel is currently working on his first original songs – He’s still posting covers on his YouTube channel, waiting for their release date very soon.
BOXINLION, two trap producers and DJs from Los Angeles, remixed Vyel’s cover of « Something Just Like This » (originally by The Chainsmokers & Coldplay) in this surprising track filled with lively beats and pure energy.
