The return of Yseult in 2019 is one of the most stunning events of the current French-pop scene. Yseult is known for her golden voice. She has kept a low-profile since 2015, until last January when she released her single Rien à prouver. She represents a vibrant manifestation of empowerment that shines through resilience. Watch and share the video for Rien à prouver via YouTube.
The 24-year-old French artist will finally make her North American debut this winter. She will headline a show in Montreal at Phi Centre on February 27th, and open for Les Louanges in Quebec City at Impérial Bell on February 28th. She will also perform in New York City on February 29th.
Yseult started singing at a very young age, saying It was easier than doing my homework. Her father listened to African music, French songs and American pop, so Yseult reproduced what she heard. She was already very focused on systemic injustice, believing that women should be treated with the same respect as men.
Yseult’s music is nourished by indie rock, psychedelic, pop and trap. Amazing, refined, and efficient, her “Y-Trap” reflects what she listens to every day, from Lizzo to Feu! Chatterton, from Cardi B to Damso and Tame Impala.
In October 2019, she released her EP Noir, a project full of addictive beats and lyrics that are raw to the core. Yseult wants to sing about love, the past, and independence, and that's what she’ll deliver on her upcoming debut album. Though she sings Everything in my life is black on Noir, Yseult, while rocking a beautiful afro and a contagious smile, has a bright future ahead of her.
