about

C'est La Vie is the third album from Swedish singer, songwriter and producer Johan Christher Schütz. For the first time, Schütz sings in Swedish, and ironically it is his first album to be released World-wide. In Japan it was released already in December 2008, when Schütz did his second Japan tour.

On C’EST LA VIE the Schütz songwriting reaches an all-time high, and he shows through his influences from French chanson (C’est la vie), looplike Western-African electric guitars (Allt har sin tid), polyrhythmic bossa-nova landscapes (Jabuticaba), Cuban scents (As if it’s never taken place), pop, reggae and a painfully naked forgiveness miniature (I guess it’s ok) why artists in France, Brazil and Japan already have chosen to record covers of his songs. Firm groove engineer is Olle Linder (with several Swedish Grammy awards with Sofia Karlsson), playing both bass and drums.

The production is more sparse than before, and Schütz said it took him 32 years to write these songs. Swedish veteran singer-songwriter Mikael Wiehe is one of those who has complimented Schütz’ songs with the word: "Fantastic".

Participating musicians:
J.C. SCHÜTZ (vocals, guitars, cavaquinho, percussion, glockenspiel, Nicaraguan marimba & piano)
OLLE LINDER (drums, bass, bouzouki, percussion, pandeiro)
KARIN HAMMAR (trombone)
STEFAN PERSSON (trumpet)
ROMAN ANDRÉN (rhodes, wurlitzer, hammond & piano)
HELENA SOLUNA and KATARINA NILSSON (backing vocals)
SEBASTIAN NOTINI (looped pandeiro in Quintessência).

On C'EST LA VIE there are 11 songs plus 2 bonus tracks, all written and produced by J.C. Schütz. The album is mastered by Brazilian wizard Ricardo Garcia (who has also mastered albums with João Gilberto, Caetano Veloso and Maria Rita).
