Juliette Armanet – Live At Foule Sentimentale Le Live – RFI – September 15, 2016 –
Juliette Armanet is a French singer-songwriter, whose dreamy, luxuriant voice is a welcome addition to the Pop Music world. Releasing her very first ep, Only Cavalier in April of 2016, with the promise of a debut album later that year, this newly signed Barclay artist has all the earmarks of a lovely career and has been busy promoting and winning audiences all over France since April.
So far, critical and audience response has been very positive – the audience was suitably impressed during this session, held in September 2016 at Radio France International’s Studio Charles Trenet in Paris. Armanet shared the bill with Cocoon, a Folk/Rock band whose latest lp was recorded in the States, and sports English lyrics.
Armanet sings and plays piano, and she has help from bass and electronic keyboards. The overall effect is potent and her material; songs about love and loss, are captivating, even if you don’t understand French.
Her third album Petite Amie won “Revelation album of the year” at the Victoires de la Musique on February 9, 2018.
She performed Les Moulins de mon cœur during the opening ceremony of the 2018 Cannes Film Festival 19, a song which she sang on the set of the Quotidien program, in honor of Michel Legrand in January 2019.
In June 2018, during the 28-minute program on Arte presented by Élisabeth Quin, the writer-composer Yves Simon designated her as one of his “travel companions”, March 8, 2019, Arte is broadcasting the concert recorded at the Gaîté-Lyrique in 2018.
In December 2020, she took part, at the Théâtre Auditorium in Poitiers, with other artists such as Malik Djoudi or Philippe Katerine, in a concert organized by Barbara Carlotti in homage to Christophe, who died on April 21. The recording of the concert was broadcast on Arte in early 2021.
She has also been named in January 2022 for the 37th Victoires de la Musique in the female artist categoey as well as album of the year, song of the year and audiovisual creation categories.
