The Flemish Michael Bublé is what he is invariably called. And there are worse people to be compared to. But for 25-year-old Yannick Bovy, the comparison is hardly far-fetched; he has the looks and the voice. Which means that the chances of this young Belgian crooner soon becoming a national and international rising star are very strong.
On the comparison, Yannick said, “I take it as a major compliment and in a way it’s logical, there aren’t that many young crooners around. The timbre of my voice resembles Michael’s, but it’s not a matter of conscious imitation. I just feel completely at home in this genre. There’s a good reason that my motto is It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing”.
With his debut album released in February, Yannick Bovy is taking another major step forward in his career, after his singles, “She’s Even More Beautiful” and “She Don’t Know It” received major airplay on national radio and were very positively received.
The album features a mix of timeless songs including special remakes of “All My Loving” (by The Beatles), “I Wanna Be Around”(Tony Bennett), and “Under My Skin” (Sinatra) as well as brand-new pop songs composed especially for Yannick by some of the best in the industry from the US and the UK.
It’s certainly just a matter of time before Yannick Bovy becomes a household name in Belgium and the rest of Europe.”’I hope that Flanders is ready for this genre”, adds Yannick. “Bringing this music to the people live, that’s something I’m truly looking forward to”.
And he’s not alone.
