BandLatinJazz

I am a singer/songwriter performing Pop Jazz and Bossa Nova/Soul in French. All my songs are original material and have a chilled positive vibe in a very jazz groove Lounge style. Inspired by trends from the late 50's and early 60's Jazz and Bossa Nova that also have an impact on my stage persona.
My reference is 'Julie London' stage glamour and Dolce Vita feminity and energy.
Think Speak-Easy sexy and evening glamour circa early to late 50's. Glam with contemporary music.

Biography

I am a solo artist who can perform with a piano, a 3 piece or 5 piece band including piano, drums, double bass, guitar and flute/clarinet or sax. The feel is Bossa Nova/Soul with a wink to jazz groove and on occasion funk. The set will mix a couple of English classic pop jazz tracks like 'Cry me a river' but overall the French singing makes it stylish and dare I say sexy.... Co-written with an English composer the melodies resonate well with British audiences. The French lyrics are uplifting, visual and positive and the overall vibe on the original material is contemporary and sophisticated, light and deep in its style and melodies. In the spirit of Lounge style, it offers a funky and jazzy tempo, different and fun, full of energy and dolce vita…
Performing in French sets me apart so do my mixed influences from Astrud Gilberto, Donald Falgen and Joe Jackson to Al Jarreau and 70's soul!

Lyrics

C'est l'ete

Written By: Nicole Perez

C’est l’été
Depuis ce jour j’me mets à rêver
Que le soleil se mets à briller
Et me caresse
De ses rayons infinis

C’est l’été
Le rythme des jours va s’mettre à changer
Et la musique va me rêveiller
Et m’amener
Dans un voyage infini

Je n’ai pas de temps
Je suis trop impatiente
Ce sont des heures d’attente
Avant mon envol

Destination Soleil
Aller simple
Destination de rêve
A demain

Destination Soleil
Aller simple
Destination tendresse
Prends ma main

C’est l’été
C’est le bonheur
La félicitée
Des jours où je peux m’abandonner
Au seul plaisr
De respirer
La chaleur

Je n’ai pas de temps
Je suis trop impatiente
Ce sont des heures d’attente
Avant mon envol

Destination Soleil
Aller simple
Destination de rêve
A demain

Destination Soleil
Aller simple
Destination tendresse
Prends ma main

C’est l’été
Et le rythme va changer
Le moment de partir
Tout oublier

C’est l’été
Le bonheur va arriver
Le moment de partir
Dont j’ai revé

Je n’ai pas de temps
Je suis trop impatiente
Ce sont des heures d’attente
Avant mon envol

Destination Soleil
Aller simple
Destination de rêve
A demain

Destination Soleil
Aller simple
Destination tendresse
Prends ma main
