He has released two albums so far: Tree of Life (2009) and Cardioid (2010). The songs belong to folk, rock and pop music.

Life[edit]

Maxim Nucci was born in Créteil, an eastern suburb of Paris, on 23 February 1979. He entered the conservatoire of music at the age of six, and learned to play the piano and the guitar. When he was 15, he began to attend classes at the Musician Institute of London. After graduation, he became the youngest teacher of the academy in 1994.[citation needed]

Nucci had been playing with his band, Max, in England when he sent a demo to several record labels.[citation needed] Universal Music France expressed interest.[1]

He had a child with Jenifer Bartoli, the first winner of the French Star academy.

Career[edit]

Nucci appeared on television during 2001. He partly composed the first album by L5–a female band created during a popular reality TV show, Popstars. He also helped the debut singers in recording their album.[citation needed]

His first single "Dis à l'amour".

In 2004, he starred as an actor and a composer in Alive, directed by Frédéric Berthe, in which a producer works with a gifted young song-writer and they find success together. The film was not a box-office success.[citation needed]

Nucci released an eponymous album in 2006.

Nucci went to Spain in the Casa Yodelice and start writing new songs, and re-emerged as Yodelice.[2]

The project was named the Casa Yodelice and the "Spookland" world is said to epitomize the peculiar atmosphere of its music, between life appetite and melancholy.[by whom?]

Yodelice was awarded the best new artist prize during the 2010 Victoires de la Musique.[3][4]
