More Nina than diva, Mélanie de Biasio displays a rare musical maturity on her latest album 'No Deal', a tight collection of jazz performances that border at times on trip-hop. More than just another singer with a pretty voice, de Biasio manages to strike that elusive balance between intimacy and grandeur, warmth and angst, light and dark. And she plays the flute. Make sure to catch her at the Fnac Live festival on July 20, at the Scène du Salon in the Hôtel de Ville, for which she'll be making a welcome foray outside her native Belgium.
(Note: those without an invite will be refused access. Invites can be picked up for free in Fnac stores from July 16, and are distributed on a first come, first served basis.)
