Fantine is an Electro-Soul singer currently working on her debut album, "I Am Fantine".
Born to a Russian father and Dominican mother, Fantine is an emerging multi-talented singer-songwriter, fluent in English, Spanish, Russian, and French. Fantine made her musical debut in 2010, when she came onto the Australian scene by lending her vocals to Space Invada’s soulful, jazz-inspired single “Super Sweet”.
In 2011, Fantine announced “Rubberoom” as her first solo single. The music video aired on Australian national television programs and was awarded "Indie Video Clip of The Week." “Rubberoom” was followed by “Eleven". Fantine's third single, “Perfect Strangers”, was produced by Jason Cox, producer of multiple albums for popular virtual band, Gorillaz.
Her career began to skyrocket in 2013 when she moved to Miami, FL and began working on her debut album, "I Am Fantine", with 19-time Grammy Award-winning producer Emilio Estefan Jr. and seven-time Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter Gloria Estefan (who also co-wrote two of her songs). Emilio Estefan Jr. curated and helped develop Fantine’s most popular songs, including “Bachata de Rosa” and “Reservation for Two.” In September 2014, “Reservation for Two” peaked at No. 5 on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs list.
Fantine’s undeniable talent and musical style reflects her eclectic, ethnic background. Her voice is a fusion of indie and Electro-Soul, paired with a “swampy yet sultry” tone. Her upcoming debut album "I Am Fantine" is infused with Emilio Estefan Jr.’s signature style and will feature her latest song “What A Day”. "What A Day" is produced by three-time Grammy Award-winning producer Wyclef Jean with additional production by Emilio Estefan Jr. It also features vocals by Wyclef Jean and Dominican reggaeton singer, El Cata.
Recently, Fantine shared the stage with Wyclef Jean at Miami Beach’s Centennial Celebration concert. She has collaborated with Australian singer-songwriter Pete Murray, toured with Dave Stewart from Eurythemics, the critically acclaimed Russian jazz saxophonist Igor Butman and also served as the opening act for Erykah Badu at the iconic Sydney Opera House.
