Juliette Armanet grew up in Villeneuve-d’Ascq, a medium sized city in northeastern France, before moving to the Parisian suburbs when she was 16. She studied theater and literature, and as a journalist made some documentaries. Juliette has returned to the songwriting she enjoyed as a teenager and has released her debut album, Petite Amie. The opening track “L’amour en solitaire” is both melancholy (few capture such a mood in music as well as the French) and merry. Armanet has been compared to Véronique Sanson.
