"In this funky French jazz show, Colleary stormed the Bastille... Simply put, c'etait magnifique." TheaterMania.com.
"Hip, flip, and always sure of herself... Tongue-in-cheek edge... Sassy... Her vulnerability and open emotionality seem to be her truest assets..Riveting." Backstage
Four-time MAC Award Nominee for Outstanding Vocalist, Mychelle Colleary presents AN AMERICAN FRANCOPHILE CELEBRATES BASTILLE DAY IN LONDON, a collection of jazz-infused selections by fellow Francophiles (Josephine Baker, Kurt Weill, Alberta Hunter, Duke Ellington, Cole Porter and Mabel Mercer), as well as contemporary and traditional French songs. Pas Les Folies Bergère mais presque... C'est le jazz!
Mychelle will be joined by the fabulous Michael Roulston on piano and other special guests.
A California native, an honorary New Yorker and now a Londoner, Mychelle has performed professionally in theatre, rock bands, symphonies, a Turkish Sufi group, top-40 bands, vocal pop groups, folk-rock duos and jazz ensembles of various sizes. Currently she finds her home between the storytelling side of cabaret and the harmonic improvisational side of jazz.
Unpretentious, irreverent, and often funny, Mychelle has a quirky honesty that is effervescently entertaining, playfully challenging the audiences to listen deeply, blurring musical genres and crafting her own jazz style with arrangements that are invitingly familiar and unexpectedly daring.
