Schoolkids Records (Retail & Label)

There are rare voices, powerful and timeless, that grab you by the guts from the very first listen. Bobbie's voice follows in the footsteps of the greats she's admired since childhood, with Joni Mitchell and Dolly Parton topping the list. Bobbie grew up just a train ride from the French capital, but it was in the USA that she drew her musical inspiration, lulled by the blues and soul vinyl she inherited from her father. Her debut album, 11 songs crafted to capture the heart, sounds like a classic of Americana folk. Bobbie traces her intimate, melancholy journey towards her dream, in the style of a road movie: the mourning of her father as a child, which is replayed and colors her love life, the courage to leave the murky waters and emancipate herself to allow herself to follow her star. Organ, pedal steel and gospel choirs arrange the album in the tradition of the genre and dress it in nostalgia, a central theme that inspires the album's title track: "The Sacred in the Ordinary", or the art of rediscovering, as in a childhood tea party at your grandmother's house, the sacred in the ordinary.
