The woman in the photograph is Paris-based pop singer Brisa Roché, originally from northern California. After dabbling in roots and emo, she discovered jazz, and developed her voice in Paris. Her first album, Chase, was released on Blue Note in 2005, but she is now on Discograph, playing pop with attitude.
She was recently featured in one of my favorite podcasts, French Vibes, which alternates monthly between classical, world music & jazz, electronic & urban, and pop, rock & chanson.
