Olivier Libaux is a French record producer, songwriter and guitar player (born on May 5th 1964 in Boulogne-Sur-Mer, France). A founding member of cult French band “Les Objets”, co-founder of the famous “Nouvelle Vague” project – covering punk/new wave songs in a boss nova style – he is the producer of “Uncovered QOTSA”.
In may 2011, Olivier asked Josh Homme (Queens Of The Stone Age) his authorization to cover Queens Of The Stone Age songs in a “personal” way, in order to create a “unusual tribute album”, with the help of many talented female singers. Josh Homme answered “Fantastic Idea. Go for it and let me hear the album when you’re finished”.
Olivier then produced the album “Uncovered Queens Of The Stone Age” on his own label “Music For Music Lovers”, featuring Emiliana Torrini, Alela Diane, Skye (Morcheeba), Clare Manchon (Clare And The Reasons), Susan Dillane (Woodbine, Death In Vegas), Gaby Moreno, Ambrosia Parsley (Shivaree), Inara George, Rosemary Standley (Moriarty), Youn Sun Nah, and Katharine Whalen (Squirrel Nut Zippers).
