Emilie Lesbros is the kind of phenomena, composer, poet and multi instrumentalist, too curious, too energetic and too vocal-bound to restrict herself to a single language of vocal interpretation. Emilie Lesbros blurs the boundaries between different genres. She started to play on eclectic musical projects in various formations ranging from rock, punk, to electronic music. At 20 years old she decided to study classical and jazz music at the conservatory. All those experiences leads her to develop an insatiable curiosity regarding sound.
She was Rosa’s vocal lead, a very untypical rock band where Lesbros could explored a real “Unbounderies”way to sing, mixing rock, experimental and classical technics with her voice. (Rosa, The Gift, 2007)
Her encounter with the bassist Barre Phillips is crucial and results in her fully exploring the field of improvised music. Emilie Lesbros expands her vocal and corporal investigations by working with theater, contemporary dance and contemporary circus companies. These many collective experiences enabled her to refine her own choices and to explore on-stage performance, thereby allowing her to forge a singular presence before the public.
In 2005 Emilie Lesbros decided to concentrate on solo expressions, occasionally accompanying herself at the piano, the bass or the violin. These solos, which go beyond simple sound performances, blend finely melodic compositions with moments of pure improvisation. Her music exudes strong theatrical and poetic elements in unstable equilibrium between humor and seriousness. Like an intimate and zany self-portrait… Her first solo album, “Attraction terrestre” got released on 2012 (D Fragment-Full Rhizome).
