Musical style: Jazz manouche, Chansons françaises
Aurore Voilqué (Violin, vocal), Angelo Debarre (Guitar lead), Mathieu Chatelain (Rythmic Guitar), Claudius Dupont (Double Bass).
After different projects, all very different from each other (Aurore Voilqué Septet, Rhoda Scott, Mayfair Electro Jazz or Orient Occident), the violinist and singer Aurore Voilqué, is releasing a second album in tribute to the gypsy music she loves so much, alongside one of the greatest guitarists of the style, Angelo Debarre. Indeed, in 2018 she released "la valse bohémienne". In 2020, it's "un soir d'été" on which she invites Thomas Dutronc and Sanseverino for a track each.
Surrounded by a rhythmic groove held by Mathieu Chatelain on guitar and Claudius Dupont on double bass, the two soloists can let themselves go to improvisation without any obstacle. It is undeniable, it turns and this in the tradition.
It is this true gypsy sound that the violinist went looking for by gathering these 3 musicians, among the most requested of the style.
A magnificent journey in the gypsy universe, between Django Reinhardt's standards, French songs and magnificent compositions of the maestro Angelo Debarre.

Phillip-Michael (Guitar / Vocal), Alex Piazza (Bass), Matt Margeson (Drums).
When he was young, Phillip-Michael Scales had an uncle who played guitar for a living. He understood the importance of it but didn't really understand the significance of his name: BB King! And even though Phillip-Michael played guitar, he shunned the idea of soloing and anything to do with the blues. He did, however, develop an attraction to songwriting when an English teacher told him that "a great songwriter could relate to anyone. See more...

Throughout history, countless women have made their mark on the blues and fought their way to the forefront in a largely male-dominated field, often with little recognition. These women paved the way for so many musicians, and the blues would not be what it is today without their influence.
"Talking about the facts of life" is the central theme of this music.
Whether it's relationship problems, financial problems, or discrimination, from Bessie Smith through Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Nina Simone, Etta James, Koko Taylor, and Janis Joplin, to more recent Blues Women like Bonnie Raitt and Susan Tedeschi, these women tell the real story and give advice.
The Tuff Lovers pay tribute to these great ladies who have meant so much to the history of the Blues. The female blues at its peak!

In its current formula, the group is one of the most percussive of the French Blues, Soul and Rhythm & Blues scene. It stands out today thanks to a resolutely modern sound but nevertheless anchored in the tradition.

Viktor Lazlo (Vocal and Violin), Khalil Chahine (Guitar), Stephane Chausse (Clarinet, Saxs), Thierry Fanfan (Bass), Lukmil Perez (Drums).
Viktor Lazlo is a multi-faceted and polymath artist who carries her Martinique and Grenada roots loud and clear: an esteemed novelist (Charles Brisset Prize) now published by Grasset, a renowned singer (with more than 4 million albums sold worldwide) and a regularly sought-after actress (for numerous films in cinema and television). "Suds", her thirteenth and new album, is a journey full of softness and sensuality, deep and chiseled texts, delicate and elegant arrangements by Khalil Chahine. This sincere album is a real ray of sunshine, which warms the soul and the heart. One dives into it as into the Caribbean sea, refreshing, carnal and voluptuous.

Ginne Marker (Vocals, guitar), Aske Jacoby (Guitar, backing vocals), Johan Dalgaard (Keyboards, backing vocals), Laurent Vernerey (Bass), Raphaël Chassin (Drums)
Ginne Marker is a remarkably talented Danish singer/songwriter and guitarist. A rare talent with international potential.
She's educated as a guitarist at The Royal Academy of Music, where she made quite an impression on both her fellow students and her professors as well as the local audience and cultural establishment. She has written music for theatrical plays, worked hard as a sideman with Danish pop act Dodo and The Dodo's, paid her dues playing musicals.
Her 2021-album "ULTERIA" underlines Ginne Marker's huge talent for singing, guitarplaying, and, not least, songwriting. Musically she expresses herself in a mature and well-considered way, her songs vibrate of soul, jazz and even rock'n'roll, her lyrics has deep poetic qualities and the music seems both timeless and innovative. Artists like Norah Jones and Melody Gardot pops into mind. The album features an international all-star band, which completes what by many has been called "Danish Album of the Year". The critics all agree: "ULTERIA" has received only five and six stars (out of six) reviews throughout.

It is on the top of the mountains that the group Bratz was born. In more ways than one. The idea of creating a band with a diabolical and contagious energy, capable of making Led Zeppelin and Michael Jackson collide in the same breath, came from the top of the Pyrenees during an informal discussion between the leader/drummer Karim and a musician friend. In a very short time, Karim gathered around him some of the finest musicians in Paris to accompany him in this project. Thus his long-time partner Vincent "Dr. Vince" Guibert took place behind the keyboards, Jeremy "Morrison" Morice on guitar, Xavier "Mayo" Zolli on bass and to lead the front, Damien Pisano and Nevedya on vocals. With an ultra-sharp workforce, the group set out to conquer the peaks and soon made its name resound in the surrounding valleys.
