Everyone knows that the beautiful and talented singer Berry is releasing a new record. After putting on her website a video with scenes of the recordings of Si c’est la vie, the first single of her very awaited second record, she now gave us another taste of what’s yet to come. For those who will be lucky enough to be in Paris in June, Berry is scheduled to play in the 12th and 13th. The tickets are already available for sale and they cost 25 euros.

Yay! Berry, one of my favorites from the nouvelle scène française, gave us a little present today. Her new record, to be released on April 23, is entirely online, available to listen in streaming. How awesome is that? I just love when artists (and the labels) make decisions like this. It kind of gives me a feeling that they understand a little something about the world today. If you’re ready to listen, simple choose one of the two options given below (connect with Facebook or give your email address) and you’re ready to go! If that doesn’t work, the original…

Yesterday, a reader from my blog in Portuguese tipped me about singer Zoë Avril. It was the first time I heard about this French girl and I fell in love immediately. I found out that she released her debut record in 2008 and, in 2009, she announced she was taking a break from the musical scene. Let’s hope she ends this break soon!Meanwhile, we can have fun listening to some of the tracks from her one and only album, my favorites so far are Paris tout va bien and Le Réveillon.Paris tout vas bien by Zoë Avril on GroovesharkLe Réveillon…

This post was originally written in Portuguese for the site Conexão Paris. Berry is the codename of the young singer Élise Pottier, and although her nickname reminds us of a fruit (and her voice is as sweet as one), the choice of the name is related to a reference to the birthplace of controversial writer George Sand (who has been, among other things, Chopin’s lover). Berry is a breath of fresh air, one of those singers that make us smile without us really knowing why. She began her artistic career in dedicating to the theater. At age 16, decided to quit…

I have JUST found a new French singer named Marine Quéméré and I can already sense a deep delicious smell of good records in the air. In less than a heart beat, I fell in love with three of her songs: Cet été, La vie promet and Aie !, Aie ! are the kind of songs that makes your day better. And I haven’t even listened to all of her songs in MySpace. I don’t have much information about Marine yet, since her MySpace page only leads us to her Facebook fan page. While I don’t find more details about her, I recommend you…

The talented and cute French singer Olivia Ruiz has prepared two great news for this January. The first one is the movie Un jour mon père viendra, where she interprets a bride that is forced to hire an actor to play her father in her wedding. The movie will be released tomorrow in the French theaters. Here’s the trailer (in French): However, the most interesting piece of news isn’t her debut as an actress in a feature film, but the announcement she made this week on her Facebook fan page: the cute frenchie told her fans that they could look…

On the original version of Under Paris Skies, I published, in the end of 2009, a list I made with the top 10 records of the decade. Since I didn’t manage to put it in order, I decided that the list would follow chronological order, since all the records bellow are so amazing.As you are going to notice, the list features mostly the artists from the nouvelle scène française, since I think they were the real stars of the decade when it comes to French music.Henri Salvador :: Chambre avec Vue (2000)The decade started great with this gorgeous record by…

It was announced, during the end of the last week, the nominees for this year’s edition of the award Les Victoires de la Musique. Since in 2010 and 2011, I’ve been doing some predictions in my Portuguese blog, I guess this became some sort of tradition (which I’m now doing in English). I only listed below the categories I’m interested in. In case you want to see the whole list, just click here. So here’s my predictions for this year’s big winners. My predictions are the ones in bold. The award ceremony will be held March, 3. Let’s wait and see! Best Male Artist Benjamin…

When I first saw the performances delivered by Camélia Jordana in the singing contest Nouvelle Star, I got over excited. I thought to myself “this is the birth of a diva”. Unfortunately, her first album was to die for and I got a little disappointed when it came out. But still I had some faith in her future. And, in the end of last year, this faith started paying of. She recorded a beautiful duet with Alex Beaupain. And here it is:

Earlier today, looking for news on talented French singer Camélia Jordana, I find a record that passed me by completely unnoticed and which I loved at the very first hearing.It’s a compilation of standard jazz made by musician and judge of Nouvelle Star contest André Manoukian. I know, I know, who needs just another compilation of that kind, but, this one is worth the while, I promise. The record, called So in Love, was released in 2010 and gathers voices of a bunch of my favorite French artist: people like Emily Loizeau, Anaïs, Helena Noguerra, the duo Cocoon and, of…
