Attracted to the British music scene of the time, Fabienne moved to
London in 1996, almost immediately joining the Bristols, a then studio
project consisting of Liam Watson and Ed Deegan, two producer-engineers
at Toerag Studios.
Fabienne had never really sung before but after Liam's proposition
for an audition and knowing that his taste in music was so perfectly
matching hers, she was determined to give it a go. The first single
'Questions I Can't Answer' was recorded in a couple of hours, the first
vocal take being used on the record that came out the same year on a

After two albums, a few singles and several tours of Europe, the
Bristols came to an end when Fabienne was unable to find a suitable new
bass player to replace the recently departed one. Eager to carry on
singing, Fabienne went solo, getting backing from various musicians but
with no fixed line up.

album 'No Time For Sorrows' concentrating on a more elaborate but
similar style she had previously experienced with the Bristols. One of
the key tracks, 'I'm Gonna Haunt You' received extensive airplay on
Australian radio, as
well as the French 'Laisse Tomber Les Filles'. One track 'Pied Piper'
has recently been used on a American TV advert for the PayLess Shoe
A few years later and after a few months of recording sessions at Toe
Rag, the second album 'Between You And Me' is now out, again thanks to
some great playing and impeccable production from Messrs Liam Watson and
Ed Turner. The album features writing contributions from Pete Molinari,
George Miller and Peder Bernhardt and this time round more songs in
French. We hope it will be music to your ears. It also comes in a nice
