ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Deborah Boily, although possessing French roots, is an American who has always wanted to be French.

At age 15, she started to study the language and has been fascinated with it ever since.

Deborah has been singing all of her life but began singing in French in 1989 when she created the one-woman show "I Always Wanted to be French".

That experience gave birth to two other Cabaret shows: "From Piaf to Brel and Beyond" and "Ce Soir....Cabaret". Some of the best songs from her repertoire have been selected for this recording.

Deborah has traveled the world singing this music and spent several years finally achieving a dream... being a Parisian.

There she sang in clubs and hotels, ironically singing mostly the music of her native tongue, English! Deborah returned to the French language once again when performing in a play written for her entitled: "Piaf in Vienna" in 2000-2001. See her website for more on this show.

The French call her "the little American with a French heart" and you'll find this very true when you listen to her interpretations of Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, Michel LeGrand, Charles Aznavour and Yves Montand.

And, you'll be thrilled as you discover the songs of many unknown composers.

Elise Sumner

Powerful voice and great songs
I think this is a great CD. As a CDbaby musician, I often search for CD's here. I'm glad I found this one. Deborah Boily's voice is very powerful and compelling. She sings with a lot of emotion, and I like her choice of songs. The ones I had heard previously are classics. The cover of the CD stands out among others. I first was attracted to the CD because of that. Great job!

Barbara Hale

really enjoyed the renditions of some of my favorite songs
I'm a fan of French music in general and this artist's renditions make for a relaxing interlude

A French Collection
Fastastic cabaret music sung beautifully! The splendid mix of French and English lyrics makes it especially appealing. It would be a great gift for lovers of French music.

Kevin Vrieze

Next best thing to being there
This CD captures all the passion of Piaf and adds a twist of joy that brings Paris, La Rochelle, and the South, back with with a powerful subtlety that makes the old new, and the sun shine. Absolutely brilliant! Buy two - one to treasure yourself and one to share with a treasured friend.
