What’s The Buzz ?
Ironically despite living and building her reputation performing for 12 years in Paris ”the city of love” Sylvie Boisel had discovered the love of her life on the other side of the world in Australia via an online meeting site. This online liaison became a very modern love story when Sylvie followed her heart and relocated to Australia. She couldn’t stand to live in a different continent than her amour. Fortunately for us, Sylvie bought her other passion to Australia and this polished Parisian songstress began to perform her repertoire of Jazz standards and classic French ballads to the delight of Audiences Australia wide.
Sylvie has built her following in Australia with a string of successful performances earning her rave reviews at events including the opening night of the Sydney Film Festival, the Melba Festival, the Sydney Multicultural Festival, Carols in The Cauldron at Sydney Olympic Park, the French Lion’s Club, French Rugby Lunch at Guillaume at the Sydney Opera House, the Wallabies Farewell Lunch at the Sydney Town Hall in front of special guest, former Prime Minister John Howard, the Bright Festival and Moe Jazz Festival both in Victoria. Recently Sylvie performed with the Zenith New Orleans Jazz Band at the Manly Jazz Festival.
“Sylvie delighted audiences with her unique vocal renditions of a range of traditional and contemporary ‘jazz’ tunes. Sylvie’s eloquent vocal prowess coupled with her delightful personality impressed all who attended her scintillating performances.”

As Sylvie herself suggests, ” if you’re looking to create the right atmosphere for a bit of romance put the first track of Amour on, look your partner in the eyes and sing along da badabada dabadabada and the rest is well Amour.”
