View Website

Jazz-influenced French indie singer/songwriter Violette comes to Club Bonafide in New York City. Born in Paris and raised in a small village on an island off the French Atlantic Coast, and now making her home in Brooklyn, Violette has clearly been influenced by such French luminaries as Jacques Brel and Edith Piaf, but Ella Fitzgerald, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson have also had a hand in the development of her sophisticated pop sound. Her most recent album, 2014's Falling Strong, showcases a collection of originals that, although rooted in jazz, reflect the young artist's eclectic range of influences from pop to rock and R&B. Upbeat and sassy, sensual and intimate, her soulful voice immerses you in emotion. Violette Raised in Ars-en-Re, a small village on an island off the French Atlantic Coast, and now making her home in Brooklyn, NY, singer-songwriter Violette began her musical journey at an early age, taking up the piano at five and later learning percussion while studying at the Conservatory. Her musical endeavors were clearly colored by influences from such French luminaries as Jacques Brel and Edith Piaf but quickly found her tastes and palette ranging much farther than her home. Soon her speakers were filled with the sounds of Ella Fitzgerald, Stevie Wonder, and Michael Jackson, all artists whose sound would have a hand in the development of her sophisticated pop sound. Her latest album "Falling Strong" was produced by Brian Bacchus (A&R/Producer for Norah Jones, Lizz Wright, Gregory Porter) showcases a collection of originals that, although rooted in jazz, reflect the young artist's eclectic range of musical influences from pop to rock and R&B.
