Dorian Sorriaux: New Single ‘Children of the Moon’

Many young players look to the guitar heroes of the 60s and 70s for inspiration, but very few are able to channel their influences as mesmerisingly as Dorian Sorriaux. When the young French guitarist burst onto the scene with rockers Blues Pills, he displayed an incredible maturity and expressiveness as a musician that was captured on their 2014 self-titled debut. Comparisons with legendary bluesmen Peter Green and Paul Kossoff weren’t hyperbole; you could hear their quality in Dorian’s playing touch.

Now, Dorian Sorriaux is revealing surprising new depths to his talent; now as a singer/songwriter with his upcoming debut solo album ‘Children of the Moon’. And he’s drawing on another rich seam of inspiration with the golden age of acoustic folk.

“The title track of the record ‘Children of the Moon’ is the first song I wrote on this record, it´s a straight up song with a few chords and a catchy melody that felt really special to me the moment I wrote it. This song is about remembering the child and the sacred within oneself. The meaning behind the lyrics is to reconnect to the happiness and innocence we feel as children that often gets lost over time as we grow as adults and lose touch with that part of ourselves.” – Dorian Sorriaux

“When I was 15 I discovered Neil Young’s Live At Massey Hall,” Dorian explains. “Then slowly I started listening to more and more folk music.”

The Brittany native’s path of inspiration that followed reads like a who’s who of transatlantic sixties folk with Dorian reeling off a roll call of acoustic heroes including John Martyn, Tim Buckley, Nick Drake, Crosby, Stills and Nash, and Bert Jansch. “I love the honesty in their music,” he adds, “because it feels real to me and really personal.”
