ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
CD DIGIPAK, no leaflet

This is the very first EP released by Amélie in december 2002.

Amelie started singing her funny songs in pubs and cafés in Lyon, France. Though she had to stop quickly since hundreds of new fans would come along each time. She then decided to build up a real show with 3 musicians.

Each time she had a gig, the audience was absolutely (and immediately) enraptured by the amusing side of her lyrics and the freshness and happiness she gave on the stage.
After a huge success at Printemps de Bourges (most famous festival in France) in april 2004 and the double prize at Montauban Festival (French authors & composers awards festival) she released her first full album "Et Pourquoi les Crayons ?" (cdbaby.com/cd/amelie2) and started touring over France, Swizerland, Belgium, Canada (where she was given the Felix leclerc Prize at the Francofolies Festival) and even Finland.

The name 'les crayons' comes from an old classical French song by Bourvil, a character she loves to mention the talent and simplicity of.

Love this cd. Amusing lyrics, great vibe and sound. It just makes you happy to listen to it!

Tamara Turner, CD Baby

A true delicacy of Pop, Folk and Jazz.
Did you see the movie "Amelie"? How serendipitous. Like the magical and sweet atmosphere of that film, this woman, with the same name, channels the charming French spirit through her jazz-bred songs that are as far-reaching as piano pop. Through the delicate and tangible atmospheres, you can picture her mischievous but coy smile, picture her on a swing at a playground, see her grasping the mic with closed hands, in a small cafe. Her light and enchanting vocals, almost ghostly, are highlighted with accordion, guitar, piano and double bass. A true delicacy of Pop, Folk and Jazz.

Graham Murray

Excellent lyrics and music
Excellent album with very clear lyrics and very pleasent music, well performed. I look forward to her next album.

where's my review?
i wrote a review of the cd above around 10 days ago, doing so i tried to show some problems cdbaby have in their profile of continental music. the review was critical, but not offensive. i gave the cd a two-star rating. however since my review is not listed on your website, i can only assume it's been censored or that you've had webproblems. if the former is correct, i guess i must've concluded wrongly about cdbaby. if a webshop can't handle polite criticism, this webshop isn't worth one's attention or suggestions as a customer. i really hope you just had webproblems.

Short and sweet
This artist is well known as far afield as Mexico but ironically little over here in France. Nice catchy tunes and excellent sound quality !

adrienne padgett

a fresh and inspiring sound which is a true gift in todays dreary market of sam
i love this type of music which is in short supply. you can conjure up the images of french cafes and great soundtracks. it almost sounds like a young jane birkin. go buy now.
