ABOUT THE ARTIST:
With three acclaimed albums under her belt—Le Chemin, Le Secret, and Dear Shanghai—Jessica Fichot has brought her music to audiences around the world, regularly performing in China, Mexico, Canada, and across the U.S and western Europe. Backed by a group of talented musicians and singing in French, Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, and English, Fichot can switch with ease from a lively French chanson to a moving Mexican classic or a jazzy Shanghai gem. The group performs styles that are varied but are always united by Fichot’s gorgeous, expressive singing voice. An active composer, she has written hundreds of children’s songs for various educational programs, and she also composes interactive music for indie video games. Her original songs have been featured in movies, TV shows, and commercials. (Photo by: Nicolas Kaviani)
