Accompanied by her accordion and fiery band, Los Angeles-based  chanteuse and songwriter Jessica Fichot draws from her multi-ethnic French / Chinese / American heritage to create an intoxicating multilingual fusion of French chanson, 1940s Shanghai jazz, gypsy swing, and international folk. As part of the Quad City Arts Visiting Artist Series, Jessica and her band will perform outreach concerts in local elementary school, as well as free concerts in public libraries in and around the Quad Cities.

Los Angeles-based chanteuse/songwriter Jessica Fichot is a lot like her hometown of Paris: French at heart, but with a soul that’s truly international. Drawing from her multi-ethnic French / Chinese / American upbringing, her music takes the listener on a twisting journey out of the French chanson tradition, into the land of 1940’s Shanghai jazz, gypsy swing, international folk, and into the wilderness of her imagination.

With 3 acclaimed albums under her belt, Jessica has charmed audiences around the world – performing her lively songs at concert halls, festivals and clubs in China, Mexico, Canada and across the US and western Europe. Featuring scorching performances from her bandmates on clarinet/sax, upright bass and guitar, as well as her own beautiful, clear vocals in French, Mandarin Chinese, Spanish and English, Fichot’s music is truly a dazzling trans-world journey.

Fichot is also an active composer, who has written hundreds of children’s songs for various educational programs, as well as music for many independent video games. She is currently working on her 4th album.
