Dear Friends and newsies ! For those who do not know me, let me introduce myself:
Born in a musical family, I was surrounded by Mozart, Beethoven, Liszt, Ella Fitzgerald, Christina Branco… and so I quickly started music.
I studied violin, piano, ballet, was part of a choir, the orchestra and also I have been part of the Maitrise de Paris ( dir. Patrick Marco), and also studied acting ( in French & in English ).
But It’s really when I left for Australia when I was 14 years-old and 2/3 that it really clicked: I wanted to write songs, sing them, record them, be on stage in front of an amazing crowd, and act.
My Host Father, Gavin, offered me my first Guitar for my 15th birthday, and the adventure began.
It’s now been 4 years that I’ve been songwriting. And that I’ve been playing the Guitar.
My songs talk about everything and nothing. But mostly everything. Sometimes, I am unable to speak (I think this disease is called, the Ingridophobia), so… I sing.
I’ve been playing my songs live for 2 years now on the Parisian scene : Le Réservoir, L'Étage Le Très Honoré, Le Pacific Rock (Cergy), La Mezzanine (Pierrelaye), Le Cosy Montparnasse, Le Théâtre Marsoulan, Le Cirque D'Hiver.
I have also had the privilege to be able to perform two times during my trip to New-York last winter, in particular at Silvana.
Here is a Live video of « Obsessing » , at the Etage, the last 19th of June. (Which by the way had an amazingly loud crowd)
This Project is a 6-tracks EP (Mini-album), called « Lost to be found » :
Those songs talk about life, my experiences, my lessons ,not so learned, my point of views on things.
Songs, that I hope, will speak to most of you.
I have written, arranged (except for the drums/bass), produced every song by myself. This is the reason why I am very excited for you to hear it and have your feedback.
Thanks to Lorentz Ivorra's (my 17-year-old younger brother) generous donation, I have been able to record the songs at the NSO Studio in Cogent-Sur-Oise (The studio is located in a castle, it looks like a princess castle ♛), with Doc P/ Arnaud Mathé behind the glass, and six awesome musicians. I have spent 4 amazing days with them…
Let me introduce them to you :

Bass : Mikaël Costa and his love for mayo / crisps sandwiches
Drums : Tony Langelotti and his lucky soft toy
Violin : Rachel Sintzel and her goddess playing
Then came the Mixing stage. And I can tell you that, it was I-N-T-E-N-S-E, and lots of fun !
I have worked with the amazing Arnaud Mathé, (who, by the way, is an awesome supporter), at the Studio La Seine (where by the way came by numerous artists, and led by an amazing crew)
His left ear suffered, the days were very long crossed by very short nights.
But it’s done now.
