In 2009 the prestigious record label GHA invites him to appear in their catalogue where he figures alongside such famous names of the contemporary guitar world as Sergio and Odiar Assad, Eduardo Isaac, David Russel… He thus becomes the second French guitarist, after Roland Dyens, to integrate this label so sought-after by guitarists.

He is dedicatee of several works by Bernard Piris, Juan Manuel Cortés and Jaime Cordoba including a concert from the latter, “Tierra de Ancestros” to be performed with orchestra in Nancy in February 2013.
