(Stache) The US and self-titled debut studio album from the chart topping, diamond and platinum selling, French pop/gypsy jazz singer Zaz, is now available via SonyMusic Independent Network (SIN). Established as an accomplished star in her native France since the release of the record last summer, Zaz brings her accomplished vocals and hooky, and often playful, songwriting and her combination of jazz manouche and chanson Franηaise to the US.

Zaz (real name Isabelle Geffroy), a singer with a powerful, husky voice, struck a chord with fans and critics when Zaz was released in 2010 on Play On Records. The album went to #1 on the French and Belgian charts and was Top 10 in Switzerland and Germany (where it went to #1 on the iTunes' chart). Zaz was certified Diamond in France, Platinum in Belgium, Switzerland and Poland and is quickly approaching platinum in Germany. She also has an ever-growing hoard of devotees worldwide thanks to her videos on YouTube which have received a remarkable 23 million views.

With a passion for song, Zaz is truly a musical Renaissance woman. On the record, she assimilates a wide range of influences with unfailing flair, moving from jazz to blues to pop, and French song to African, Andalusian, Brazilian and Latin genres, all with a joyful, poetic enthusiasm.The first single from Zaz, "Je Veux," which Le Nouvel Observateur said "immediately catches the ear," was eagerly devoured by a growing fan base and was #1 on the French SNEP charts for nine weeks.

The multi-platinum status of Zaz cemented the French sensation as one of Europe's finest new artists and her single leitmotiv is song. She will sing anywhere, as long as she can express herself freely, in words that echo daily life with its sorrows and joys. In support of her US debut, Zaz will be playing select dates in NYC this summer, along with a larger tour to be announced later this year. Discover Zaz's music and join the poetic quest of a young woman whose life is built on song.
