Female vocalist interprets a mixture of original and cover songs with a touch of blues, swing, soul, gypsy jazz, and folk.

Audra is a native Californian singer, equally at home with all opera, jazz, and country. She grew up listening to radio and from her earliest age was singing all over the house while listening to her grandfather’s 78 swing records and making up silly songs and playing 'name that tune' with her brothers, her uncle and his guitar. Years later, she studied classical voice and graduated from Chapman University with a Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance. She enjoys the dramatic, delicate, and intricate nature of classical voice, but jazz, blues and country (and the more relaxed genres) are her style. Some of her favorite artists are Chet Baker, Patsy Cline, Mel Torme, and Elvis.

For years, she has written songs but never had the music worked out but that all changed the night she attended an open mic in Paris, one week before she had plans to move away from the city of lights. Here, she met Pascal, and once they started talking, they found that each had a key to a new musical collaboration et voila, the magic was born. The next night, they had their first song. She did leave but one month later, returned from Berlin to continue writing and they prepared to record their originals along with some popular tunes, (standards mostly), and some favorites and new arrangements that grab the publics attention while busking. What you are about to listen to is a blend of their favorite songs and genres. Enjoy.

More on Mr. Segard. Multi instrumentalist, he started his career in Ireland at the end of the 70’s as member of the “Phantom Orchestra”, their album “Voila” made the Irish top10 in 1979. Shortly afterwards he met Paddy Keenen of the Bothy Band fame and went on to record an album together: "Celtic Soundscape". Returning to Paris after touring Europe, he played in numerous jazz bands on the left bank as a guitarist, banjo player and bassist. He went on to form the "River Boat Shufflers" with teenage singer Madeleine Peyroux, tour with "Les Escrocs", and participate in numerous musical collaborations. From fiddle player to double bassist he moves between jazz, classical and traditional music with perfect lilting stride.
