Drinking deep of the French songwriting tradition, Juliette Armanet weaves songs that are sensitive, piquant, and tenderly pop. Her lyrics, tinged with melancholy and a good dose of humor and self-derision, evoke sweet sentimental foolishness. The public discovered this bittersweet blend in 2015 with the electro-pop song “L’amour en solitaire”. This artist from Lille was immediately compared to the greats of French chanson, most notably Véronique Sanson and William Sheller. This success led to numerous opening gigs in France: Bryan Ferry, Juliette Gréco, and Julien Doré, with whom she sang a duet on “Corail”. Last year, Juliette Armanet hadus spellbound during an intimate concert at the Montreux Palace. Back for the Festival, Juliette Armanet will present her first album, named revelation of the year at the Victoires de la musique award ceremony. Alternating intimate slow songs and bouncy disco, Petite Amie provides an unornamented and sincere breath of fresh air to the French songwriting tradition.
