A new voice from France is the rising star in europe!

The course of this artist is eclectic : Adding the talents of author, composer and jazz singer, Louisa Bey (chosen name as a tribute to Abbey Lincoln) has learnt classic piano, been graduated european law high level master, got the experiment of account manager in a design communication agency, then decided to begin a music and singing school in 2002.
October 2002 : an important encounter : Frederic Charbaut, music director of the festival Jazz in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Paris, France, scheduled her and presented her the music director of festival Tanjazz in Tanger where she sang with pianist Nico Morelli who encouraged her to write.
Being scheduled again in Tanger, she arrived with a trio lead by pianist Alexandre Saada. A first album began to take form and has been released in January 2006 : Blue Thoughts. Some concerts in clubs, as the Sunside, Sept Lézards, Archipel, Café Universel, and festivals as Jazz à Saint-Germain-des-Prés and Jazz à Vienne, a good welcome by journalists and schedules in radios.
The idea of a second jazz album more folk/pop rock where the guitar would be at the center began with the help of guitarist Olivier Louvel. A new team (Alexandre Saada remaining), a new sound with 70ies flute, Rhodes, Wurlitzer and electric bass : Turning Me Jazz was born, with wonderful arrangement and art direction work by Olivier Louvel. The references of this new album are more like Gil Scoot Heron, Nick Drake, Herbie Mann, Joni Mitchell. But still the Louisa Bey composing touch!
