ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Paris-based American jazz and gospel singer, the soulful vocalist Margeaux Lampley welcomes a challenge. Originally from Oakland, California, she has degrees from UCLA and Columbia Law School, but left Wall Street and a renowned law firm in New York and Paris to live the artist’s life, studying jazz and in no time establishing herself as a featured artist, backup vocalist and songwriter for various French groups and singers. As part of the duo Sodex, she had two club hits, including “Move Me”, featured on the soundtrack of the film “De battre mon coeur s’est arrêté”, and even collaborated with disco legend Edwin Starr on one of his last recordings, "Burns Like Fire", which she co-wrote and for which she sings backup vocals.

With her warm, intimate style, Margeaux is a regular on the Paris music scene at Paris clubs such as the Sunset-Sunside and has been making a name for herself throughout France and Europe as a solo jazz artist and as a member of various European gospel groups (The 100 Voices of Gospel, Liberty Gospel...). She was a finalist with The 100 Voices of Gospel in the 2016 edition of Britain's Got Talent, one of the largest and most well-known talent competitions in the world.

In 2008, she proposed her first solo jazz album Love for Sale, which revisits the great jazz standards. A second well-received album Rain followed in 2012 with 9 original compositions and 3 standards, oscillating between jazz, pop, soul and latin music. In January 2018, Margeaux will release the first single from her new album with the album to follow in April 2018.

« 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 its 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.
