About the man behind the
Other than his musical success, Jean Quatre is a Gold Medal winner at the 1985 Indian Ocean Games, where he participated for the first time at such level, in the Long Jump Category and came out on top. Jean has an interesting story to share about the events leading up to the award ceremony and how humbled he was, not aware why everyone was cheering for him - only later to find out the result.
A true inspiration for Seychellois athletes.
As a professional musician based in Seychelles, Jean Quatre started his musical career as part of local bands where he sang and played the guitar for many years. Years later he had the desire to expand his repertoire, hence he learnt how to read music and eventually taught himself how to play the saxophone, something that he has mastered.
Jean is always looking for opportunities to develop his technical skills and collaborate with creative professionals. He is currently working on new and exciting materials, after much popular demand from local and international fans. Jean continues to push himself in stretching his imagination and musical boundaries.
2020 will see the release of new material.
His first album, Ballades Seychelloises en Sax was first released in May of 2013 and he has since been happily playing on the local scene at hotels, resorts, private functions/events and fundraising for charities.

Jean loves this powerful and motivational quote:
Any saxophone player will have those influences come through in their music in a very different way. I can listen to the same 10 sax players as someone else for my entire life, and we'll both play completely differently. That's the beauty of being a musician.
