Vanessa is a singer, writer and composer who loves big thrills !
Spoted by the record company FY Solstice (a french record company with a predilection for French music and disclosing unrecorded works), for her elegance and her playfulness in performing the French repertoire, she records « Les Anges Musiciens ». She collaborates with Delphine Productions and King Records Japon, performs on numerous french stages such as l’Olympia, l’Opéra Comique, Sentier des Halles, Thêatre du Gymnase, Palais des Glaces, Off festival in Avignon and in foreign countries such as Japan, China, Taiwan, Latvia, Poland, England, Colombia, Netherlands, Scotland, Thailand.
In Paris : she studies lyrical singing, classical percussions, and dramatic art.
In Toulouse : she has a degree in vocal performance from ISDAT, Higher institute of Art of Toulouse.
In Leucate : she sharpens her skills in kitesurf and nurtures her love for composition and adventure !
She is passionate about the encounter of vocal aesthetics, writing, the search of a dialogue between art mediums and by kitesurf.
Along her classical studies, she meets Christiane Legrand (French singer and sister to Michel Legrand), and makes her débuts in a Parisian cabaret “le canotier du pied de la butte”, and soon takes the path of Music Hall performing as leading showgirl on the stages of French casinos.
She loves (from a very early stage) musical eclecticism and nurtures herself through the mix of styles.
Musical Comedy takes her onto the stage of l’Olympia, songs to the Hotel de Ville of Paris, Palais des Glaces, Théatre du Gymnase and the Sentiers des Halles, the a cappella vocal quartet “parisan way” brings her to Tokyo and Osaka (2005, 2006, 2007), the operetta to the Opéra Comique for three waltzes Trois Valses (directed by Jean-Louis Grinda) and La Périchole (Directed by Jérome Savary in 2006 & 2007). Her path comes across this of Delphine Productions for her first recording.
In 2007, she creates with her friend and director Stéphane Ly-Cuong, the musical show “C’est toujours ça de pris ! (i.e. “C’est toujours ça de pris !” that can be translated into well at least that’s something!”) inspired from the title of a famous song by the french Music-Hall artist Marie Dubas. They mix the universes of Lyrical singing and cabaret by exploring the repertoire of the songs of Yvette Guilbert, Marie Dubas and Yvonne Printemps. The show was played more than a 100 times in tiny theaters in and outside of Paris, during the Off festival in Avignon. Vanessa was accompanied by the pianists Tristan Michel and Stéphanie Fontanarosa.
During one of these performance in 2011 she meets FY Solstice. The record Company FY Solstice prints her first featured record “Les Anges Musiciens”, released in September 2012. The artistic director is Jean Jacques Cubaynes.
In 2013 and 2014, she is Eurydice in Orphée, the popular opera by Daniel Tosi, and is invited by the Festival Déodat at Severac together with the pianists François Michel Rignol and Stéphanie Fontanarosa. With the art company «Transe Express”, its giant dolls and drums, she flies to the festival of Riga in Latvia, the International Deventer Op stelten in Netherlands and the Picadilly Circus Circus in London.
In 2015, she is Julie in the Opera “Messidor” by Daniel Tosi. With the company “Transe Express”, she sings for the celebration of the Chinese New Year in Hong Kong, then in Dublin at the Galway International Arts Festival. This same year, she enters the IsdaT (Higher institute of Art, Toulouse) and unveils her work of musical creation in a workshop the “Fabrique du Mirail”.
In 2016, she continues her work at the IsdaT (Higher institute of Art, Toulouse), and takes part to the creation of a sound installation by Hélène Maigné taking place at the Musée des Augustins (Toulouse) performing the Folk Songs of Berio.
