Life seemed quite figured out for Eoin French. He was on the path towards an illustrious career in architecture when something unexpected happened... he found himself writing songs. And not just a handful of songs, but a proper album. That debut album, Wild Alee, touches on the experiences of a man living with heartache, loneliness, and self-doubt, all while having to explore these feelings in near solitude. Ken Grand-Pierre linked up with French (aka Talos) to discover how this project came to be.

“I would constantly draw out a song, similarly to how I’d draw out a building.”
