A to Z Zazie Qui Chante...


For my last post of April for the A to Z Blogging Challenge...
Zazie is another French “chanteuse” (singer) who, in my opinion is the epitome of a woman taking her life and career into her own hands and coming out on top. Her real name is Isabelle Marie Anne de Truchis de Varennes. I know, right? What a name. I'd have gone with Zazie, too. She has modeled, plays piano and guitar, sings, and she writes songs not only for herself, but for other artists both famous and not.

For those of you who watch The Voice, Zazie started coaching on the French version of The Voice in 2015 and one of her team, Lilian Renaud, won that 4th season. She also coached in 2016 and 2017.

I’ve posted a few videos here for you to get an idea of what she does herself, and what others have done with her music.

She wrote rockin’ hits like this one for Johnny Hallyday

She sings/writes songs like this…which I just happen to love. The video is great.

And this one is pure fun!

  2. This is a new artist to me. Her music sounds good. That first rocker hit me by surprise when I was expecting music I typically associate with France. I like the music she performs.
