Some of the music at this festival includes:
One of the very first artists SFSC brought to Australia and an artist who is so popular here. She has performed with another close SFSC member, Nouvelle Vague. Camille has now released seven albums and a number of movie soundtrack accolades. She has been spoken of as a "one woman choir".
Over the last ten years, Yelle and her trio have been playing to audiences in France. Yelle is popular also worldwide and is one of the very few French acts to have been invited to play at Coachella three times in a row. She has also opened for Katy Perry on her UK California Dreams Tour. Her uplifting electronic beats and colourful, fascinating art-pop stage presence will bring a high energy to SFSC19.
Clara is sultry, sexy and highly charismatic! Born in Marseilles, Clara is similar to SFSC icons like Francoise Hardy, Jane Birkin, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Emilie Simon. She always has dark rimmed eye makeup, vintage style clothing and a heavy-fringed look. Hers is an indie-style sound and her stage appearance has been described as "magnetic".
Clea has performed at Parisian open mic nights, jazz clubs and as a student of the city's famous Arpel Jazz School. Clea is described as charming, cool and she is an incredibly talented performer on this year's SFSC19 lineup.
Nadeah began busking on the streets of Paris at 18 years of age, and will now join SFSC favourites Nouvelle Vague as an acclaimed solo performer. She has already released two albums, and French-based, Melbourne-born Nadeah Miranda returns to SFSCwith an introduction to what will be her third album. Nadeah is a stunning and welcome performer to this already fantastic line-up.
