New Artist in the Electric Chair Family

Chiara Civello joined forces for the 2nd time with Marc Collin, French musician, film music composer, record producer and founder of the project Nouvelle Vague. After her first cooperation with Marc in 2017 on the album ‘Eclipse’, they present now 12 classic French chansons all original written between 1945 and 1975. The album is called: “CHANSONS” (Chiara Civello sings International French Standards).
These songs, carefully selected from artists like Michel Legrand to Charles Aznavour, Charles Trénet, Édith Piaf, Jacques Brel or Gilbert Bécaud and Francis Lai mostly are well-known but do surprise, as they have crossed borders for over 70 years sometimes without reference to their French heritage.
Marcs production is pure with a little retro touch; a sort of vintage minimalism and covers a variety of styles from swing to Cuban beats via soul to blaxploitation, Chiara’s voice intimist, often baring her soul, simply wonderful and sensitive.
Chiaras and Marcs lovely version of the 80s Hit Pour toi (Feelings) was released in December already.
