Guestpost! David on Canadian (yes, ANOTHER gorgeous Canadian) Sophie:

Judging from the cover of Sophie Beaudet’s first CD, Garconne, Sophie’s clearly a fille fragile. Unconvinced? Then give the first song “À quoi tu penses?” a listen. Sophie’s from an artistic family and grew up listening to a wide variety of music, including classical and jazz. While in her early twenties, Sophie met famed Canadian jazz singer Ranee Lee, who agreed to teach Sophie the basics of jazz. While personally I like jazz, I am glad it didn’t take over the entire CD, as the music hews more closely to folk rock. The jazz overtones provide additional color, and are especially strong in “Dans les bras de Léa”. Other favorites songs from this CD are “Tu n’es pas à moi” and “Où vont-ils?”. See her perform live here.

French girls, singing. No, sighing. Making me sigh. Ah.

    Big thumb up to David! Yet another perfect summer tune. There’s more than a few nods to some of her peers (Marie Pierre Arthur, Fanny Bloom) which seems to suggest that there’s a “nouvel son quebecois”? And as she’s another talented quebecoise, her album is readily available(ish) here in the States and having given it a spin on Spotify it’s on my “to buy” list…
