Jazz-influenced French indie singer/songwriter Violette comes to Cafe Wha? in New York City. Born in Paris and raised in a small village on an island off the French Atlantic Coast, and now making her home in Brooklyn, Violette has clearly been influenced by such French luminaries as Jacques Brel and Edith Piaf, but Ella Fitzgerald, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson have also had a hand in the development of her sophisticated pop sound. Her most recent album, 2014's Falling Strong, showcases a collection of originals that, although rooted in jazz, reflect the young artist's eclectic range of influences from pop to rock and R&B. Upbeat and sassy, sensual and intimate, her soulful voice immerses you in emotion.
