Var Matin: Valerie Ghent in Le Val

“Undulating and dynamic…a stunning presence on stage…astounding vocal range”

A New Yorker in Le Val

Friday night concerts have become a tradition in Gambetta Square. But this time it was a New York singer who presented her music. Backed by four talented musicians, herself playing synthesizer, she focused on original songs highlighting her astounding vocal range. This multi-talented artist is a singer and funky-blues pianist, and also a songwriter, sound engineer and producer. Her latest album entitled “The French Sessions” was inspired by visits to Provence and was recorded in the Var in the middle of the vineyards with French musicians. It is also a return to her roots, since her mother is Parisian and she has wanted to reconnect with long-lost family in France. Undulating and dynamic, this singer has an stunning presence on stage that the large audience clearly enjoyed.

Une New Yorkaise au Val

Le concert du Vendredi soir est devenu une tradition place Gambetta. Mais cette fois c’etait une chanteuse New Yorkaise qui présentait son récital. Soutenue par quatre musiciens de talent, elle-même jouant sur son synthétiseur, elle a enchainé ses chansons mettant en valeur un registre vocal étonnant. Cette artiste aux multiples talents est chanteuse et pianiste funky-blues mais aussi auteur-compositeur, ingénieur du son et productrice. Son dernier disque intitulé “The French Sessions” a été inspiré par son passage en Provence et enregistré dans le Var, au milleu des vignes, avec des musciens français. C’etait aussi un retour aux sources puisque sa mère est parisienne et qu’elle a voulu retrouver ses racines auprès de sa famille depuis longtemps perdue de vue. Ondulante et dynamique cette chanteuse a fait preuve d’une étonnante présence sur scène que le public nombreux a apprécié.
