About Marianne Dissard
Between Chanson and Americana, “L'Entredeux” is Marianne Dissard's enchanting debut album. Produced, composed and performed by Calexico's Joey Burns, with stellar contributions by friends from both continents, including Calexico's John Convertino on drums, NaÃƒÆ’¯m Amor (Amor Belhom Duo), Rob Burger (Tin Hat Trio), Sammy Decoster and Mickey Raphael (Willie Nelson), “L'Entredeux” was released worldwide in the Fall 2008, with 15 months of constant touring, from Europe to New Zealand to North America.
Between Southwestern noir and acoustic French pop, “L'Entredeux” won a prestigious Coup De Coeur from France's AcadÃƒÆ’©mie Charles Cros in 2009 and was voted in the Top 10 French albums of the decade by Francophile bloggers.
Selected as one of “50 French people that matter in the USA” in France-AmÃƒÆ’©rique 2009 Summer issue, Marianne attended SXSW 2010, blogging for Huffington Post from the festival and released her ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“intermediary' album, “Paris One Takes” (“8/10" Blurt, “a fantastic album. 4/5" Venus Magazine), recorded in ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“one takes' in Paris, France in December 2009 with her touring band, as a free download, in gratitude to her fans and friends for allowing a music dream to come true.
Marianne is now working on her second album, “L'Abandon”, with her Tucson bandmates and collaborators Christian Ravaglioi from Italy, Luke Doucet from Canada, Arthur Vint, Connor Gallaher and ThÃƒÆ’¸ger Lund from Tucson and BK-One from Minneapolis. “L'Abandon” will be released in early 2011, with its companion DVD, “Lonesome Cowgirls”, a bawdy burlesque remake, directed by Marianne, of the Andy Warhol's 1968 western movie shot in Tucson, AZ.

“Paris One Takes” (Blurt Mag' gives it 8/10 “stupid tight,” Venus Mag' 4/5 Stars, “a fabulous album” and Lucid Culture calls it “definitely one of our favorite albums of 2010.”

About Francoiz Breut
FranÃƒÆ’§oiz Breut is the original pioneer of the Nouvelle ScÃƒÆ’¨ne FranÃƒÆ’§aise. Her career began modestly, away from the limelight, as a background singer for her former partner Dominique A. When A eventually encouraged her to start her own career in 1997, Breut quickly became the main ambassador of the new French scene among foreign audiences.
Since then her inimitable voice has inspired countless well known song writers to contribute songs to her first three albums. With her fourth album “ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â€šÂ¬ l'aveuglette”, FranÃƒÆ’§oiz Breut is breaking new ground: the songs were conceived in cooperation with musicians of her long time live-band and this time she has written all the lyrics herself. The result “ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â€šÂ¬ l'aveuglette” is a much more homogenous album than its predecessors and – perhaps for this very reason – an even better one!
