ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Imagine if Belle had a bit more grit and growl, was a piano-playing singer/songwriter, and moved to the middle of the South African bush to work with wildlife and use her music, writing, and photography to benefit conservation and community.

Well, she's real. Meet Genevieve. An eclectic talent with the voice of a fallen angel, the witty intelligence and whimsy of a Monty Python skit, and a musical diversity matched in scope only by the variety of wildlife she's worked with and the breadth of her life experiences, Genevieve is one artist you won't want to miss.

Balancing sweet and sexy, smart and sassy, Genevieve is an all-round entertainer, a charismatic and unique talent who has been wowing audiences as a singer/songwriter since first taking the stage at 6 years old.

It's possible to categorize her as an adult-contemporary artist because of the depth and sentiment of her lyrics, but her music spans multiple genres, incorporating elements from folk traditions to blues and jazz nuance to pop hookiness. And, with a voice blessed with impressive dynamics and range, she shifts seamlessly between sultry and Scotch-soaked chanteuse to pure Disney princess in a matter of notes. It's not surprising that her music and her voice have found homes in a variety of mediums, from tv/film and commercials to video games and educational programs.

After several years in the biz, she felt burnout approaching, so she took a sharp left and disappeared into the South African bush, using her other skills as a writer and photographer to pursue another passion in life: wildlife conservation. For several years, she ran around after animals, documenting them for local and international NGOs and managing to not get eaten by anything (though she did get bitten by a cheetah). And while she did maintain a tether to the musical world through a connection in Cape Town (where she did session work on the rare times she WAS in civilization), she still felt a musical void. She did get the opportunity to sing a Zulu lullaby for a Pampers commercial, though, so that's something.

However, due to limited time around technology, musical opportunities were rare. Most days, her audience consisted of little more than meerkats, lions, and rhinos. At one point, she even taught music classes to children on one of the reserves she worked on, few of whom spoke any English, which was possibly more challenging than not getting eaten by a lion. It was all good for a story, but not for a career. The musical beast was starving and needed feeding, which meant stepping out of the wilds of Africa and back into the, well, wilds of music. So she returned to the US.

Now she's working with some of the top names in the biz, busy building a multi-media platform she refers to as ‘edutainment’ – entertainment that also educates. Combining her music with her award-winning photography and newly published novel, she is using her unusual experiences from working in the wild to create a unique series that champions environmental and other social causes. When she isn’t visiting schools and community centers or doing photo shoots, she is advocating for a variety of organizations and writing and producing music for licensing opportunities. Occasionally, she sleeps.
