Love for Sale
Born in New York, raised in California, Margeaux left the US and a career in law to live the artist's life in Paris, studying jazz and in no time establishing herself as a featured artist and backup vocalist for various French groups, including Marathonians, Les Pétroleuses (producer of Nouvelle Vague) and Funkaroma. Her song "Come on girl, come on boy", co-written with the Marathonians, was an international success. As part of the duo Sodex, she released two successful singles, including "Move Me", featured on the soundtrack of the film "De battre mon coeur s'est arrêté", in addition to compilations in France and throughout various parts of the world. « Love for Sale », Margeaux's debut jazz album, was recorded in Paris with Romain Molist (piano), Nicolas Grammosenis (double bass) and Jérôme Villefranque (drums). The album reflects her true love of the great jazz standards sung by her idols Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington and Billie Holiday. She offers us simple and elegant versions of these favorites, each with it's own personal musical style. The tracks "Buildin' Walls" and "Still in the mood" give a taste of Margeaux's own composition style, a vibrant fusion of pop, jazz and soul. With her warm, intimate style of jazz, Margeaux has become a regular on the Paris jazz scene, accompanied by brilliant musicians such as pianists Alain Jean-Marie and Olivier Hutman.
