MUSICAL BRAIN SCAN SERIES: AMELIE ROUSSEAUX
Dear sixties souls, we're very thrilled to introduce you today a new GMK Musical Brain Scan playlist. For this new episode we would like to introduce to you Amelie Rousseaux. She is the woman Behind Sofia Bolt.
For those who have just discovered the existence of this series, here is a quick resume. This curative blog is focus on music. It consists of 15 songs playlists curated by creative minds with who we share common DNA. For about an hour, get to know new groovy humans by discovering their musical brain scan.
Sofia Bolt is the project of producer, musician and songwriter Amelie Rousseaux. In early 2017, pent-up in Paris and searching for transformation, Rousseaux moved to Los Angeles. Her first few months in L.A were a revelation - she found herself surfing every day and immersing herself in American culture and music. This shock to the system brought a creative blossom that gave rise to the sweeping, beautiful, honest, and acclaimed debut album Waves, released in July 2019.
Recorded live in a whirlwind five days by a cast of L.A all-stars, including Van Dyke Parks on arrangements, Waves is at once casual and tightly constructed, with Rousseaux’s pop melodies leaping and diving over a bed of guitars and roomy drums.
Since the release, Rousseaux has created the soundtrack to Hedi Slimane’s winter 2020 Celine collection and has toured both the States and Europe, opening for Sharon Van Etten and Interpol.
