Captain Sparks & Royal Company

Captain Sparks & Royal Company


Captain Sparks & Royal Company is a French band led by the charismatic Antoine "Sparks" Rigaud, whose poetic storytelling weaves through original songs, creating a soundtrack that merges French chanson with urban and Latin vibes and hints of electronic music and jazzy brass. Rigaud’s journey began as a solo endeavor, but quickly evolved into a full-fledged crew that graces the stages of Normandy and beyond. The band creates musical experiences filled with nostalgia, hope, and the vibrant spirit of life. After the release of their debut EP "Premieres Lignes" (First Lines) in 2019, they released a second EP titled "Objectif Lune" (Objectif Moon), in 2023. 

Their track “La vie en rose” (not to be confused with the Edith Piaf classic of the same name) emphasizes the transient nature of life, urging listeners to cherish moments of joy, love, and beauty. “The most important thing is to get away from the daily grind / Working is good, but if you need to, go take a stroll,” Rigaud sings, “Somewhere else, maybe around the corner, there is always a garden, a little bit of love."
