Amie Brûlée brings you fabulous songs in seductively vintage style. Recently spotted in Paris with her ukulele (that’s ukulélé in French), she sings an eclectic mix of French chansons, vintage jazz, and other tunes that cross her path and take her fancy. After a terribly serious music degree at the University of Melbourne, Amie has journeyed through classical, jazz and cabaret to discover an imaginative place where simplicity rules. What she really loves to do is sing great songs, tell interesting tales and have some fun with the audience. What else can you do with a repertoire that includes Edith Piaf, Serge Gainsbourg, 1920s swing, New Orleans blues, Cole Porter, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits and flamenco?
