SonoMusette recaptures the moody, melancholic sound and spirit of mid twentieth-century Paris. Inspired by the great performers of the era, such as Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, and Django Reinhardt along with contemporary artists such as Zaz and Patrick Bruel. This music has retained its power to charm and transport audiences, and SonoMusette taps that nostalgia with artistry in vocals and instrumentation.
The band features French chanteuse Mimi Pirard whose renditions of these timeless French classics provide a freshness and excitement that is contemporary, yet faithful to the spirit and tradition of the original versions. Few singers are capable of doing justice to Piaf and Brel, and even fewer can match Pirard’s mesmerizing interpretations and powerful delivery. The band is comprised of period instrumentation featuring Robert Lunceford on accordion, Isaac Vandeveer on guitar and bass, Jan Martinelli on upright bass and piano, and Richard Andrews on drums.
