Born on a breezy Californian day, Brisa Roché was raised by an artist mother and adventurer father without electricity on the northwest US coast, where she surfed the waves, before leaving home with her guitar at 16. She moved to Paris and plunged into role of bandleader and frontwoman, improvising 5 nights a week in the stone "caves" of St. Germain, cutting her teeth and learning to command the stage, putting the vulnerability of her own songwriting temporarily aside, in favor of the vocal freedom possible through jazz. However, discovered by Blue Note and signed to EMI in 2004, Brisa released a critically acclaimed first record that veered instead towards spacey, cinematic pop. Beside her songwriting accomplishment, her breathy, unique voice alone establishes Brisa Roché as a formidable, wholly versatile talent and singer-songwriter trades the smooth delivery of former label mate Norah Jones for her singular vocal stylings. An Artist with a capital A, American born and French by heart, Brisa Roché is fond of risk-taking onstage and in the studio and flirts with cinema ("The Foam of Days" YSL "), fashion (Swarovski) and drawing. Combining elements of jazz, folk and ethereal pop ,her titles are invitations to dive into her intimacy alternatively with melancholy, lightness or joyful spirit. Her aerial and amazing vocal print (whose style has been compared to Peggy Lee & June Christy by Jazz Hot magazine) conferees Brisa a unique, elegant and emotional character that is sure to reveal the multiple facets of a talent whose generosity intensely speaks to everyone.

Three young musicians, hailing from Rennes, exploring progressive, contemplative, and organic instrumental music. Influenced mainly by Nordic music by piling bits of organic sounds and melodic emotions to assemble aerial instrumental blended with refined electronica and fiery post rock. Like when in contemporary art, technology, and humanity work together.

If Anglo-Gallic psych-pop duo Motorifik had been around in the 1990s, they would probably have been on Creation Records, so perfectly do they embody that aesthetic, with churning slo-mo guitar grooves and great, anthemic choruses hovering on the edge of legibility.
