Press


"Refined music critics from any corner of the world love to use French words like "chanteuse" in their reviews to describe charming lady singers with melancholy, elegant pensiveness, balanced reaction to feelings, and a sophisticated, intelligent beauty. In the case of Elodie O, even the roughest music critic would use it: Elodie is in fact Parisian, she's a singer, and that aura perfectly fits her music. The only surprising element here is that this chanteuse doesn't perform behind a piano or an acoustic guitar. Elodie's music is a refined combination of sparse, carefully chosen electronic sounds and - naturally - a beautiful whispery voice with a charming French accent." - Deli Magazine


"It's moody synth-pop night tonight, as ElodieO sings her 'minimalist electro-sensual' songs in both French and English. The combination of this delicate chanteuse with Sin-e's lovely wine bar make tonight New York Press's pick for "Art-School Date of the Week." - NY Press


"ElodieO is a pop gem with a soft French accent that sings over cello, harp, guitars and organ, elevating it from your usual live show." - NY Press


"Nublu is a heaven for futuristic takes on disparate sounds from near with love trio, or far with elodieO the new Sunday night Dame." - Time Out


"If you're trying to sell Go! on a new female singer and you drop a comparison to Nico, you have already half-sold Go. you could not 'not' listen -- or be moved... We listened to her eponymous disc and found it moody, moving, quirky, off-kilter, alluring." - Boston Globe, Go Column


ElodieO, all the way from France, is Adorable, and has a Great voice for Techno Dream Pop. See her now before she gets Really Big. She impressed us Immensely with her Full-Length album. Her voice of course has the Ethearal, Lilting French quality we love, but with all of the Instrumentation and the programming Involved, well, its almost enough to melt us Completely. - Radio Mike


"Elm and its delicate pop, whispered by elodieO and her charming French accent, could very well make itself a place in our record collection this winter. Comfortably settled in between the records of Katerine, Autour de Lucie and Tue-Loup." - Rolling Stone


"Elodie has the mesmerizing charisma of a poisonous liana, that can not leave you indifferent." - Pop News

Bio

elodieO is a Parisian Electro Pop singer and composer. Trained as a dancer, actress, and Classical cellist, she first worked in theater and television in Paris, France where she was born. elodieO eventually moved to New York City with a double scholarship (French Government, New York University) to further her knowledge of music and dance. Working as a dancer on and off Broadway, she began her own Jazz band and performed in numerous New York City clubs while simultaneously creating Elm, a French Indie pop duo, with instrumentalist Manuel Bienvenu. Elm released two albums (Elm, 1998; Sunny Scenics, 2002), played many festivals, and appeared on live radio and television shows.

Since 2004 elodieO has spent her time composing, arranging, and producing her own music. Her sensual and quirky songs are divided equally between French and English, and her compositions and arrangements recall Bjork and Brazilian Girls with some New Wave and Hip Hop elements. The emotion and tonality of her delicate singing whisper has been described as blend between Nico and the 60's French pop of Francoise Hardy.

In 2004 elodieO released her first EP (available on iTunes). This coming spring, her full length debut album will be out, featuring Jesse Murphy and Aaron Johnston from Brazilian Girls as well as many talented New York and Parisian musicians.
