Jessica Fichot CD Release Show (with special opener Moira Smiley & VOCO)
Jessica Fichot CD Release Show for her new album "Le Secret"!
8:30Pm - Jessica Fichot
The musical map leading to Jessica Fichot's second full-length album, "Le Secret", is thrilling to say the least. The chanteuse-songwriter draws on her multi-ethnic French / Chinese / American upbringing and distills French chanson, folk, gypsy jazz, and world music into an intricate and infectious canon of songs sung in French, Mandarin Chinese, and Spanish. With her critically-acclaimed first album "Le Chemin", Fichot had already garnered the stamp of approval from tastemakers such as LA Weekly, San Francisco Chronicle, and KCRW, and toured the world traveling regularly throughout the U.S, and even to Mexico, China and Europe, performing on vocals, accordion and toy piano and accompanied by a fiery band of clarinet, upright bass and guitar. In the process, she licensed a few songs to both independent and major movies and TV shows. With "Le Secret", sonically pristine yet undeniably natural, she seamlessly shifts between languages and styles artfully, crafting an intriguing musical journey that beckons listeners to revisit the recording over and over, and invites them to discover her live performances.
featuring: Robby Marshall, Brandon Turner, Brian Carmody, Michael Papillo, Dave Wilson, Antoine Salem and many musical guests!
8Pm: moira smiley & VOCO
