Biography

Contrary to what one might think, Robert is a female unique french music singer/songwriter. She was born the 14th of October in 1964.

Independent artist, author and songwriter, she evolves in a fairy-like universe, halfway between the tragedy and the Gothic, sometimes with a point of nonsense. Often compared to Mylène Farmer, Barbara or Marie Laforêt, death, childhood, and love appear regularly in her titles. Her crystalline often fragile opera voice and the baroque (and sometime electronic) music, give her a real success in France, Belgium but also in Japan, in spite of a certain media absence.

Classical ballet dancer, her dreams break , when a teenager, a bony decalcification makes her abandon her passion and real talent. Young actress, she decides to dedicate herself to music and song in 1989. Since, she collaborates in most cases with her spouse Mathieu Saladin, musician and often co - compositor. Her first single ” Elle se promene ” is released in November 1990. Three years after in 1993, she releases her first album ” Sine ” with an underground electronic sound , composed of 16 titles. The same year, we find her voice accompanying that of Jeans-François’es Coen in ” La Tour de Pise “, whose video is signed by Michel Gondry, and who had accomplished ” Les jupes ” of Robert some months earlier. She will make the choruses of certain songs of his eponymous album.

In 1997, Robert releases inconspicuously ” Princesse De Rien ” , her second album (12 titles) with a complete change in her musical style using ancient baroque instruments mixed with electronic loops . The same year, she meets a fervent admirer: the world-wide successful Belgian writer Amélie Nothomb.
