When you hear Bastien Duverdier whaling on his harmonica and furiously plucking at his resophonic guitar, you almost forget that the Basque Country native was a skater before a musician.
Bastien has been skating for eighteen years now, ten of which he's been professional with brands like Element and Vans. However after a freak fall in Burma, Bastien picked up a guitar and discovered a new love for blues. What started as a way to pass time while off his skateboard, has been forged into a new career alongside his skating, under his musical alias, Képa (his grandfather's name).
Skateboarding taught Bastien to be independent from a young age, and continues to inform his pursuits. He shares the same independence he found in skating, in his music.
