Blending the elements of her heritage together, Jessica Fichot has put a unique spin on a jazzy throwback sound. The multi-lingual chanteuse is known for singing in her native Mandarin and French, as well as English and Spanish. 

The music itself carries a distinct French cabaret sound akin to the greats like Edith Piaf, Josephine Baker and more. Accompanied by a clarinet, sax, guitar and stand up bass, Fichot sings while switching between the accordion and the toy piano. 

On her newest EP, Dear Shanghai, the LA by way of Paris performer offers up swing-era sound with lyrics sung completely in Mandarin. Crafted as a tribute and celebration of her mother's hometown, Dear Shanghai is charming and playful, with the occasional sultry, lovelorn torch song thrown in.

You can see Fichot perform this Friday, August 6 at Monterey Court (505 W. Miracle Mile). The show starts at 7 p.m. and runs until about 10 p.m. Tickets will be sold at the door the day of the show for $15 or for $10 online, in advance via the Monterey Court website.
