Maison Planàterre Très belle voix qui nous rappelle cette francophonie américaine active en dehors de la Louisiane et des grands centres, et située tout juste au Sud du Québec. Le Titre "Rame" (mon âme) est un merveilleux folk dont les harmonies et les textes touchent des cordes sensibles de notre existence troublée, remuée, perturbée, en perte de repères et ramant alors à l'aveugle dans des plans d'eau incertains, ou même affrontant des mers démontées.

Jean-Bernard Cabana Papa Pere is a beautiful song, that indeed reminds me of my Pepere a old Canadian frenchman who raised his chickens in the back yard, build houses, and built furniture cabinets. Oh, such a wonderful man. Life is too short to keep all the good people. Thanks for your sweet voice, somewhat like Judy Collins.
Bless you on this Journey.

Gabriel Brunelle She's got a full-bodied, consistent voice that carries a lot of weight behind thoughtful, vulnerable lyrics. She's backed by restrained and skillful musicians. I think her singing in French is an beautiful homage to the cultural history of Vermont. Nice record! Favorite track: Rame.

Mc Jaco Hi F, Recently I discovered your music, and what you do is amazing. Your music is pure, the songs on this album are very varied, really different from style and atmosphere; but each song is like a Pearl. I have purchased this album immediately. Favorite track: Rame.

about

French-American singer-songwriter Francesca Blanchard was selected Best Vocalist of 2015 by Vermont weekly Seven Days who hailed her as "a profound, mature talent” who "displays guile and artistic sensitivity that would be the envy of many tunesmiths twice her age. She may be young, but she has an old soul.” (Seven Days)

Born and raised in France, Francesca traveled the globe with her family before settling in the small town of Charlotte in beautiful rural Vermont. Her intimate music, sung in French and English, reflects on her travels, both physical and emotional, and reflects influences ranging from Norah Jones and Carla Bruni to Eva Cassidy and Francoise Hardy.

Francesca has opened for Joan Armatrading, Suzanne Vega, Yuna, Lissie, Caravan Palace and others and performed at the prestigious Francofolies Festival in Montreal in 2013 and 2015. Francesca's rendition of the classic French song “Sous Le Ciel de Paris” was featured on the Putumayo collection Vintage France and her recording of "Petit Papa Noel" appeared on Putumayo’s recent French Christmas collection.

Francesca's first full-length album, "deux visions," was released on October 2, 2015. It was produced by Montreal singer-songwriter Chris Velan (Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars), mixed by acclaimed producer Jean Massicotte (Lhasa, Patrick Watson, Arthur H, Jorane) and mastered at the prestigious Metropolis Studios in London.
