For fans of Brigitte Fontaine, Calexico and Nick Cave, Tucson chanteuse Marianne Dissard is the atypical American artist.
Born in France, she lived her entire musical life in the American West. Her first album, 2008 “L’Entredeux”, was composed and produced by Joey Burns of Calexico for whom she played on that band’s 1999 hit track, ‘Ballad of Cable Hogue’. Now splitting her time between Paris and Southern Italy, Marianne Dissard released a third album in 2014 on UK imprint Vacilando ’68. Recorded in Tucson, Arizona with members of Giant Sand, Mexxrissey, Willie Nelson’s band and Calexico, ‘The Cat. Not Me’ confirms Dissard’s ambition to bridge the dramatic sensibilities of French chanson with the rougher expanses of Mariachi-spiced desert Americana. Chanson américaine?
With her personal folk-pop and confessional country, Sheffield-based singer-songwriter Nat Johnson has been playing sell-out shows and gathering fans including Lauren Laverne, Gideon Coe and Janice Long.
