Ladies’ Fantasies Club – acoustic rock // alternative pop from Belgium, with lyrics between romance and irony. Not only for ladies!
When Jean-Yves Szmida is not painting or not working as a stonemason, he writes songs. From the year 2000 on, he played bass or guitar in different music projects in East-Belgium and was frontman of the Rock band Pan!c TV (about 100 gigs between 2005 and 2011).
Influenced by bands and musicians like The Strokes, The Cure (acoustic), Mauro Pawlowski, The Love Substitutes or even his former band Pan!c TV, he started Ladies’ Fantasies Club in late 2013 as a solo project (singer-songwriter) and was joined by Joshua Cremer on the drums/percussions in 2014.
In February 2015, a professional video was released with the aid of New Sounds Of Europe, a production team from Utrecht (NL).
The first single « Promises » is online since April 1st, 2015. The first self-produced EP with 5 tracks was released in June 2015.
A 2nd single and video “Something’s Wrong” was released in april 2016 (produced and mastered by Belgian producer Dany Gallo [Domguè, Marie de Condé, Wise Guys, Seth Gueko...])
Since the beginning and up to the end of the year 2016, Ladies’ Fantasies Club played more than 40 gigs (solo or duo) in Belgium, Germany, Austria and England (incl. a concert in the well known London club The Troubadour).
