Pygmalion of Vanessa Paradis, rock star spotted on Nicole Kidman’s arm, this genius songwriter-composer knew how to mix seventies inspiration and modernity. The son of an NBC producer and an actress, Leonard Albert Kravitz, spent his childhood between Manhattan and Brooklyn and was immersed in jazz and R&B from an early age. At the age of five, he already knew he wanted to be a musician. In Los Angeles, where his family moved, he joined a choir and trained on several instruments: guitar, bass, drums, piano… In 1985, he joined his girlfriend Lisa Bonet (Denise in Cosby Show) in New York. Revealed to the general public with Let love Rule, he separates from his daughter’s mother in 1991. The album Mama Said is in a way the soundtrack of a break-up, a very well received therapy. He then worked with Vanessa Paradis… and released Are You Gonna Go My Way, which received critical acclaim. After working with Madonna on Justify My Love and writing Mick Jagger’s solo album, Lenny received the Grammy award for Best Rock Artist… Proof (against rumors of plagiarism) that Lenny has created a musical style all his own!
