Born in New York, Margeaux Lampley grew up in California, raised on gospel, jazz and soul music. After receiving a law degree from Columbia University in New York, she left the US and an international career in law to live the artist’s life in Paris, studying music with an emphasis on jazz at the CIM music school and the Studio des Variétés. Very quickly, she was invited to collaborate as a singer- songwriter for various French groups including the Marathonians (“Come on girl, come on boy”, signed by Warner and used for a worldwide Peugeot publicity campaign), Marc Collin (Nouvelle Vague, Les Pétroleuses producer) and Funkaroma before forming the the group Sodex and releasing two popular club singles
One of the really gratifying things about being in radio is
being able to expose new talent and new material that is
really worthy of being heard. A lot of material is
submitted but so little, especially where singers are
concerned, really has it.
Margeaux Lampley's new album Love for Sale has it and
is worthy of being heard. Margeaux's voice is lovely and
her phrasing is interesting throughout the album. The fine
trio backing her give this studio album a nightclub feel.
