Multi award winning, internationally renowned songstress, from The Hottentots, PARISSA BOUAS will be performing songs from her latest CD ‘The Full Force of the Wind’ along with some eternal love songs. PARISSA’S songs offer deeply compelling evocations of love, loss and heartache, while her voice offers a deep level of emotional authority and technical fluency. Her eclectic vocal styling’s lean towards the jazzy sounds of Melody Gardot and Madeleine Peyroux and are supported by rich and quirky arrangements, which draw on elements of vintage Gypsy jazz, Latin and alt-pop. She’ll be accompanied by her talented friends including James Ross on guitar.
“Parissa … immediately engages by being blessed with a voice that has timbral overlaps with Billie Holiday’s. More significantly she shines the charm of that voice on some exceptional self-penned songs”
