Gypsy Folk Jazz With Florence Joelle

Latin and classic jazz, vintage blues, gypsy folk, '50s R&B rock 'n' roll

Paris-born, Florence Joelle is a blues and jazz singer, songwriter, harmonica player, and recording artist based in London, where she is a favourite performer across the city. With her first two albums, Kiss Of Fire and Stealing Flowers, she has created a musical subgenre all of her own. It's a Franco-Anglo polychromatic potpourri of Latin and classic jazz, vintage and contemporary blues, gypsy folk, fifties R&B rock n roll and Parisian torch song. Pull up a chair - no, that one in the corner. Pour yourself a glass of the good stuff, then press play. From its opening notes and tender, nicotine-and-whisky vocals, Florence Joelle's beautiful new album, Life Is Beautiful If You Let It, will draw you into a world of exotic enchantment like a cool wind on a sultry night.

There was wine and there was reefer, there were parties and protests, pain and pleasure, desolation and joy - everything that makes life life. "Florence is a rare jewel and this second album captures her captivating style. She boasts deliciously suave vocal phrasing framed by a hot and agile band. Her savvy originals and jumping jazz standards are an unaffected joy. Blooming lovely."
