Et Pourquoi les Crayons ? Songs
AmÃ©lie's first EP album's release took place in Lyon, France in july in the Antique Roman Amphitheatre of FourviÃ¨re in front of a crowd of 2500 fans. This was a great moment after a very busy year where AmÃ©lie toured over France and made a big hit at Printemps de Bourges (most famous french festival) and at the Alors Chante Festival in Montauban where they won the 2 prizes of the jury !
AmÃ©lie started in 2001 in bars and cafÃ©s as a solo piano singer. She put up a band together with singular-haired Heiko (soft clarinet, tuba), Michel (accordion) and Laurent (bass). They soon were very popular in their region, then over France and Swizerland. The show was created in january with the magical piano (which opens itself !), singular special effects and the astonishing contact that AmÃ©lie creates with her audience.
After the making of the new album, they'll be touring France, Swizerland, Belgium and Canada from september 2004 to august 2005.
AmÃ©lie conveys in her own song that great traditionnal spirit of popular songs, simple, singular and wild-eyed. There's nothing intellectual about the project, just a sort of travelling troup which carries along happiness and humour.
