Hello, hello! Big Ern here back with another Ask! Today’s question is from Jonas, and took a while to research!
Is that true that Baiser’s vocalist is now a Free-Will producer?
It seems like there’s a rumor that’s been going around about this that started on the comments section of Baiser’s vkdb page! vkdb, however, only adds proven, factual information to its database, and because this comment was added with no source it hasn’t been officially been added to the site. A little further information came from iTunes, where a blurb about a RENTRER EN SOI album names Yukari, the vocalist of Baiser, as having been a producer for the band!
But neither of these sources are official per se, and it seems no one knows for sure… at least on the Internet! So, I took to RENTRER EN SOI’s discography to figure this out! A lot of RENTRER’s CDs were produced by DYNAMITE TOMMY and it’s true that Free-Will handled all of these releases. But I did find at least one CD that credits Yukari for production, arrangement, direction, recording, and mixing! There’s no mention of whether or not he’s Baiser’s Yukari (but it’s probably him). And it’s important to remember that RENTRER has been disbanded for so long that even if he did produce them, even if he was a Free-Will producer before… it doesn’t mean that’s what he’s doing now.
So, the bottom line? It’s highly likely that Baiser’s Yukari did work for Free-Will for at least a little while, as a producer and more! But, it’s hard to say if that’s still the case now.
