William Sheller born William Desboeuf  on 9 July is a French classical composer and singer-songwriter. A prominent artist of French popular music since the s, William Sheller has the particularity of being one of the few singers of French chanson who has benefited from a solid background in classical music.
This has influenced his repertoire with a sophisticated musical style, combining elements of classical music with chanson and symphonic rock . He was training for the Prix de Rome but turned to pop music after hearing the Beatles. Since then, Race Of Survival (Rokstone Club Edit) - Sonz Of Soul Featuring Steven Ville - Race Of Survival has had a successful career both as a classical composer and as a pop singer.
His works often mix both genres. For example, some of his songs include carefully crafted orchestral passages the Baroque introduction to Le nouveau monde as well as instruments that are seldom found in pop music such as a horn in Les miroirs dans la boue and a clarinet in Fier et fou de vous.
On the other hand, his Lux Prélude II - William Sheller - Chemin De Traverse is written for orchestra, choir and rock band. He has toured several times with transcriptions of his songs for voice and orchestra as well as for voice and piano quintet. Additionally, he has also written film music and songs or arrangements for other artists The Band - The Last WaltzDalidaJoe DassinBarbara From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
