Dear friends, fans, enemies and passing smiles,

you’ve been waiting for more than 3 years to give your ears, soul and body what they deserve. Forget about the frustration, Gilles Snowcat has the perfect cocktail of magic pills and forbidden liquor: “Nama Time!♥“. Snowcat the bartender is shaking it for you, and will serve you exactly on 9th of December.



Nama Time!♥” is another unique experience, since the album is made of a concert for your bedroom, only for you, under silk and velvet. And talking about bedroom, it all starts with a Continental Breakfast.
Thanks you for your patience and see you in my lounge on 9th of December, 2015.

Nama Time!♥” is an it’s Oh! MUSIC (Japan) release.


We can always count on Kittyちゃん to raise a revolutionDear friends, fans, passing smiles and enemies,

I want to try something new with you.

Every now and then, we hear moaning musicians complaining about the piracy, illegal downloads of their precious creations and lecture daring fans.

However, isn’t it well-known in show biz that “It’s not a problem if 20,000 people have illegally downloaded your new album; it’s a problem if they HAVEN’T!

On the other hand, some artists naively think that everything should be for free, shared without receiving anything in return. They usually end up bitter, playing “The Final Countdown” in any cover-band they’ve just joined, hoping to revive their long-lost dream. Sad.

So why not trying something new and more creative? Do you want to experiment something fresh with me? Would you like to be part of something unique in show-biz with your favorite old Cat?

Here’s what I suggest. You will… hack my music.

“ …” (deafening silence of the crowd)

Whattt?! Hack your work, dear Snowcat?

Yes, you name it. But not exactly the way you might imagine.

Take a deep breath. Let’s go?

Firstly, I kindly but firmly invite you to enjoy “Continental Breakfast”, freshly released from a warm bed, spreading energizing fumes of hot coffee after a night to remember –I leave that one to your imagination.


After all, my love songs after dark have the right to see the morning after…

“Continental Breakfast” is here: , the first song on the list.

Listen to it. Once, twice, one million times. And if your tells you that you like it, buy it. Simply and without fuss. (click on the “$2.99” link and follow the instructions, credit card or PayPal)

As easy as 1-2-3.

Then ? Then here starts your hacker job. Give the song away to 10 of your friends or enemies or whoever you like or hate enough to think they deserve to receive the song.

Send the mp3 file and tell them about the link and ask them to do the same action, with another song of course. They buy it and send to 10 of their contacts. And so on.

The goal here is to create a kind of dynamic, to spread my love songs after dark beyond their usual night bar universe. Let’s bring love to breakfast. Let’s test, experiment, try, spread and live!

Now, if for any mysterious reason you don’t feel like “Continental Breakfast” is the most appropriate to share with your inner circle, nothing prevents you to use the same tactic with any other record of mine. The choice is huge:

I wrote you a rather long letter. I’m grateful, not only for reading till here, but also for contributing to an experience that would prove that music business is not evil. Isn’t the best collaboration between art and business made possible by creativity? I do believe.

Let me know your friends’ reactions, your deep opinion and enjoy that rare opportunity of having a breakfast in bed with Gilles Snowcat. 🙂

Take care and enjoy a meaningful & joyful life

You, as do the most faithful fans of Gilles Snowcat, often wait for the sunset to have turned into a starry, sometimes cloudy, coffee-dark night to push the play button and let Gilles Snowcat’s love songs after dark fill the room.


You look at the golden beverage that awaits you to drink it, can it be whisky or some other kind of spirit.

The night will most likely turn to be in night satin… Life is so short and temptation is so close…

A night like this is, as to quote old clichés, is a night that you wish would never end.
Yet it does. The sun comes back (providing the clouds allow him to), caressing your sleepy eyes, trying to make you forget what happened just a few hours before.


A night to remember

Morning is no more the time for Snowcat’s love songs after dark. You promise yourself you won’t be tempted anymore when evening comes. You fell into temptation, into the overuse of a dirty little guilty pleasure.

However, as the coffee pours its magic drops in your cup, something draws you to commit the sin again. It’s breakfast time, and you already need your dose. Long before dark. You got it. “Continental Breakfast“, a song that already carries its load of nefarious rumours and questions.

Gilles Snowcat's very own idea of a continental breakfast...

Gilles Snowcat’s very own idea of a continental breakfast…

According to who knows best, “Continental Breakfast” is a demo mysteriously leaking from sessions of the long-awaited forthcoming record from Gilles (ooh really? Holy shit, this really going to happen?).

Why is “Continental Breakfast” published almost officially is yet to be explained, though some high-powers may have more pressure than we may think. Perhaps…
Whatever it is said, “Continental Breakfast” is available on a rather unique version, something you should treasure.

And if you wonder why it is sold 2,99 dollars instead of the regular price for other Snowcat songs, the reason is plain simple: one has to feed the musicians playing on the next album. And there’s no mystery here: the better they’re fed / paid, the better they play. Ditch the myth of starving artists who produce their best!

So if you enjoyed “Continental Breakfast“, could we gently but firmly ask you to buy your own copy? (PayPal makes it friendly) You’ll contribute to keep the band satisfied. And… productive. At the end of the day, it’s your own pleasure that will be enhanced. As good as… a breakfast with Gilles Snowcat.

ps: On a technical side:

Cinnamon Lilly

Continental Breakfast” is one of the songs coming from the songwriting collaboration between Gilles Snowcat and Cinnamon Lilly‘s Grand Leader Renato Ronchetti.



The Green Fairy mix comes from a series of demo recordings that clearly deserve their Green Fairy title… You’ll figure out why. You know best.
