Up for a little soiree? — A musical journey from Jessica Fichot

Submitted to Prospector

Jessica Fichot draws her inspiration from her multi-ethinic upbringing. Her music is a blend of French chanson tradition, 1940s Shanghai jazz, gypsy swing,and international folk.

Los Angeles-based chanteuse/songwriter Jessica Fichot is a lot like her hometown of Paris: French at heart, but with a soul that's truly international.

Drawing from her multi-ethnic French/Chinese/American upbringing, her music takes the listener on a twisting journey out of the French chanson tradition, into the land of 1940s Shanghai jazz, gypsy swing, international folk, and into the wilderness of her imagination.

With three acclaimed albums under her belt, Fichot has charmed audiences around the world — performing her lively songs at concert halls, festivals and clubs in China, Mexico, Canada and across the U.S. and western Europe.

Featuring scorching performances from her bandmates on clarinet/sax, upright bass and guitar, as well as her own beautiful, clear vocals in French, Mandarin Chinese, Spanish and English, Fichot's music is truly a dazzling trans-world journey.

Fichot is also an active composer, who has written hundreds of children's songs for various educational programs, as well as music for many independent video games.

"Brings an art-song sensibility to delightfully catchy tunes." – LA Times.
