Kicca Short Info

It was in Italy, in the beautiful city of Vicenza, that Kicca let out her first cry. She began singing at the early age of 6, entered a choir and music became a part of her life eversince. She began developping her own style inspired by many artists like Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Nancy Wilson, Julie Driscoll & Brian Auger, among others.
Aged 15, she sang Rhythm’n’Blues and Soul Music with local bands. Year 2004 was a turning point in her career as she met the impetuous keyboard player Oscar Marchioni who is a great composer fascinated by vintage tunes. Together they launched the « Kicca & Intrigo » band. At that time the duo was accompanied by Salah Khaili (on drums) and the eclectic musician Hervé Samb (guitar). It composed original songs recalling the 60’s, with touches of jazz and soul music immersing the audience into light and dizzy moods. After a first album « Bollente » (released in 2004), and Sssschh (2009) was released in 2011 « Senso Contrario » (Label Cristal Records) with chiselled tunes - the album was well acclaimed by the medias and was a great thrill for the audience!
Kicca is also a great performance on stage. In Live, they have rocked the French musical scene with intense shows, groovy and quite explosive! Kicca’s uncommon voice, her warm and magnetic presence on stage, her natural bond with the audience and her musicians have led to a show full of dynamics!
For her second album « Choose a color », released by Cristal Records, Kicca has asserted herself more than ever! Exit Intrigo, even if Oscar Marchioni is still pervasive, the beauty and her recording company have worked on a new artistic path full of musical collaborations.. With Gabin Lesieur who previously worked on Ben l’Oncle Soul’s album.
Therefor Kicca’s range of colors has widened by offering us a picturesque atmosphere, slightly psychedelic with touches of rock’n’roll, closer to her caracter. Louis Brooks gives way to an Emma Peel of a contemporary era ; her voice tone recalls Amy Winehouse’s voice but with the warmth of Aretha Franklin’s..
This little jewel is already distributed in Germany since 17th October, 2014 and it is expected at the beginning of 2015 in France with a release date gig in Paris which promises to be amazing.
