Garance and the Mitochondries

Garance Louis. Extrovert, eccentric composer, singer and accordionist from Perpignan, who finds a fresh and new way of interpreting the French Chanson tradition with her formidable band The Mitochondries. Her band is a mixture of Tom Waits, Edith Piaf and Frank Zappa, with the melancholy softness of alternative post-musette songwriting. Garance has appeared in the bars and street corners of her adoptive London for 4 years, always surrounded by the most curiously talented musicians she can find.
