Woodkid Biography & News
To generations of Americans, a fictional character named Pinocchio was the original 'woodkid.' But a man named Yoann Lemoine, aka the Woodkid, is no modern-day puppet. In fact, he's firmly in control of a career that has made him one of the most in-demand names in the music industry.
If you've never heard of Lemoine, he's the man behind videos for Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream," Taylor Swift's "Back to December," and Lana Del Rey's "Born to Die," just to name a few. He's also worked as a creative director for the video campaign for John Legend's album "Love in the Future," produced by Kanye West, as well as videos for "Who Do We Think We Are" and "Made to Love."
Lemoine's run of success continued in front of the camera when he began performing as the neofolk musician Woodkid. His first EP, "Iron," rolled out on March 28, 2011. Nearly two years later came the debut album, "The Golden Age," which Lemoine considers to be an autobiographical record. He released the official album cover through a video he created himself, and one critic went so far as to call the album "filmic," with another pondering "whether it's more of a thoughtless Michael bay thriller or a deep adventure with the intricacies of Christopher Nolan."
Get the full Woodkid experience as his upcoming tour will sweep through Coachella on the weekends of April 11-13 and the 18th through 20th. He'll also play dates in Germany, Spain, Switzerland, Iceland, the Netherlands, Hungary, France, Portugal and Austria beginning in June.
