Chansons françaises et australiennes!

Elza is a French singer living in Melbourne. As well as writing & singing her own original songs, she interprets old-time classics of Serge Gainsbourg, Jacques Brel as well as contemporary singers such as Zaz & Thomas Fersen. Elza is influenced by French chansons, Yé Yé (French pop from the 60’s) and contemporary French Gypsy Jazz.

Schooled in ancient texts & early jazz, centuries of street & prison slang, French decadence & cinematic spectacle, Floyd Thursby’s songs tell of love and death, brimstone and ecstasy, the sacred and the profane. He performs solo: one guitar, one voice.
