    Yodelice (real name Maxime Rodolphe Nouchy), previously known as Maxim Nucci, was born on February 23, 1979 in Créteil, France. At 6, he joined the Conservatoire & learnt guitar. At 15, he joined London's Musician Institute, where he became the youngest guitar teacher. Playing bass, guitar & keyboards, Maxim has been noticed by Santi in 2001 & signed to Mercury France/Universal. Collaborations followed...
    In 2001, he composed "Mes Prières" for Ana Torroja's self-titled album & in 2004, he composed & produced 4 songs on Jenifer's album Le Passage.
    After his first album Maxim Nucci in 2006, Maxim went on tour. He has been Vanessa Paradis' supporting act in Brussels & at Paris' Européen & Ilene Barnes' supporting act at Paris' Elysée-Montmartre.

    In 2008, it was the redemption, the turning or the revolution. Yodelice came in, a new artist. With his hat, he looks like characters that inspired Tom Waits & Bob Dylan. With his voice, we think about magnificent artists like Cat Stevens or Ray LaMontagne. Maxim went to a house in Spain to write songs. Ethnic/folk songs came to him, between JJ Cale & America. "Sincerity goes through words & English-speaking themes. There's a more natural side in English, that's not my native language. But it's really my culture, Anglo-Saxon. I just wanted to record an album & be proud of it, to play it on stage." The house was named La Casa Yodelice, he borrowed this name. This English-speaking singer, unknown by Maxim Nucci's fans, became Yodelice. Maxim & Sébastien Grandgambe performed the songs in a guitar/cello version. To find the right words, Maxim worked with a Canadian actress, Marianne Groves. She understood stories in his melodies... Maxim called director Bastien Duval to build Yodelice's universe. Bastien drew Maxim's guitar with a skull. For his album Tree Of Life, Maxim recorded the rhythm section in Los Angeles, took the bass & hired drummer Abraham Laboriel Jr. Other musicians came to play brass & Sébastien Grandgambe came with his cello. Back in France, he played electric guitar & also used his skull guitar. He didn't want to leave the stage, he loved it. Like a new birth, Yodelice was born.

    In 2009, Yodelice has been nominated for the Prix Constantin, which was won by Emily Loizeau. The following year, nominated at the Victoires de la Musique for "Album Revelation", with Tree Of Life, he got the prize.
