Accompanied by her accordion, toy piano, and fiery band, singer/songwriter Jessica Fichot draws from her French/Chinese/American heritage to create an intoxicating program of French chanson, 1940s Shanghai jazz, gypsy swing and international folk. With 3 acclaimed albums under her belt, Jessica has charmed audiences around the world – performing her lively songs at concert halls, festivals and clubs in China, Mexico, Canada and across the US and western Europe. Featuring scorching performances from her bandmates on clarinet/sax, upright bass and guitar, as well as her own beautiful, clear vocals in French, Mandarin Chinese, Spanish and English, Fichot’s music is truly a dazzling trans-world journey.
"Fichot’s music is a glittering testament to L.A.’s multiculturalism; she brings an art-song sensibility to delightfully catchy tunes, some sung in French, some in English and some in Chinese."
-Los Angeles Times
