These years see the creation of the group, formed in 2013 between a few friends passionate about music and in particular Reggae.
The first compositions thus see the light of day, very quickly followed by the first concerts, a first 3-track EP recorded at the studio "La Licorne Rouge" in Rennes. Enthused by the project, the core group - composed of the singer Romain Macé, the guitarist Sébastien Gamarde and the drummer Théo Morin - starts looking for musicians, in order to flesh out the sound of the band. In 2015, the current sextet's lineup was formed with the arrival of Jean-Baptiste Hueber (bass), Antoine Carfantan (keyboards) and Cédric Giscos (lead guitar). The adventure is launched...
The group was spotted locally and supported by the "Horizons", a grouping of different structures of current music in Rennes including Antipode MJC, Canal B, Jardin Moderne, CRIJ Bretagne, Radio Campus Rennes as well as the festival I'm from Rennes.
A few months later, the band releases their 1st LP album "Harvest", in self-production.
The band is defending its Harvest album with a score of dates such as the Wadada festival, the Seanapse festival, the Trolls en Folies or the Foins d'hiver.
The group created an associative collective named "Fawaka Records" to federate independent reggae in Brittany, organizing, among other things, inter-group musical meetings in downtown Rennes.
Faygo established its notoriety that year, playing in larger festivals such as the NO LOGO BZH, the Melting Dub, the Titour Festival, the Arrêtes Ton Cirque Festival, as well as the Enchanted Flute alongside renowned artists like The Wailers, Naaman, Max Romeo and many others. ..
Faygo is releasing his 2nd album Together in collaboration with Fawaka Productionphotographer Tanguy Marchand for visuals, Irie Ites/Musical Impactfor album promotion, and Inouïe distributionfor physical and digital distribution. Faygo recruits a brass section (slide trombone, trumpet and saxophone) for the occasion and entrusts the writing of the section's scores, to Simon Latouche.
The band announces its release, at a release party organized on October 17 by Fawaka Production at the Ubu, mythical concert hall in Rennes. On this occasion, Faygo invites the bands The Fanatiks, BI.BA and the DJ Noar Selecta.
A video for the track Be Yourself is also being shot with director Olivier Judicaël and dancer Isaac N'Vemba and released in June on Youtube, via the Reggaeville platform.
Faygo is flying to Thailand, including a lineup at the Sunset Beach Music Festival, the country's biggest Reggae event. The band is gracing this 12-day Thai tour with no less than 7 other dates, including the University of Fine Arts in Bangkok, a Live at the "Sk8xophone" studio in Bangkok and several renowned Reggae concert cafes between the center and south of the country.
This tour comes about thanks to the collaboration with Judean Kong, a Thai artist and founder of the dub band "Jonathan & Calvin", recognized from the Thai Reggae scene, who performed the featuringon the track No More Slaveryfrom the album Together.
On site, they make the video for the track together with the "What I Like" video production team (+ 10000 views on Youtube)
On his return, a summer tour of about twenty dates was planned in France to which should be added about ten dates then under negotiation. However, because of the health crisis, only a minority of them could be maintained and insured.
Restricted by the rhythm of confinements and other curfews, the group took advantage of this empty period of live to move forward with the elaboration of their new album.
Faygo will record its 3th album, due for commercial release in May 2022.
