ZAZ (born Isabelle Geffroy) has been compared to the likes of Edith Piaf, Yves Montand and Ella Fitzgerald and her signature voice is celebrated all over the world. Since the start of her career in 2010 with the seminal hit “Je veux” ZAZ has won a multitude of awards, including French and German Grammys, and has sold in excess of four million records internationally, with Gold status or higher in twelve countries. She has performed over 500 shows across five continents, relentlessly proving that music transcends borders. An artist of global resonance, her last album, Paris, saw her collaborate with the likes of Quincy Jones, Charles Aznavour and Pablo Alborán. Quincy Jones has noted that ZAZ “has real blues roots in her voice that you’d swear came straight out of the ghetto!”

Zaz slowly but surely succeeded in creating a buzz in the musical landscape. She performed at the prestigious Olympia in Paris in January 2010 as part of the festival Generation Reservoir, a contest honoring self-produced artists. Zaz won the contest, which isn’t surprising given her talent and charisma on stage. In France, it would be far from a cliché to find her on the heights of romantic Montmarte, singing from the top of her voice.

Zaz released her debut album in May 2010 which topped the charts for 9 weeks in France, Switzerland and Belgium. The record was produced by famous French singer/songwriter Raphael, who also wrote and composed three songs. Zaz’s first single “Je Veux” became a massive hit single in Europe, Hong-Kong, Japan, and Russia among other places. It has since gone on to sell 800,000 units worldwide.

“ZAZ has a voice as warm and rich as the wines in the Bordeaux region, where she first began performing… she’s a performer full of insouciant charm.” – NPR

“It’s always an event when ZAZ chooses to grace us with new music; and as ever, the sultry introspective new single is full of surprises… [‘Qué vendrá’] is distinctly sensual.” – BlackBook
