Ellen Birath is from Sweden but lives in Paris since four years back. She was first spotted by the singer and trombonist Paddy Sherlock at a concert in an Irish pub in the 6th arrondissement:
She has since moved to the front of the stage and now has her own group, Ellen Birath Band, with musicians that are all very sought after on the Parisian swing and jazz scene. Ellen Birath: vocals, Thomas Ohresser: guitar, Matthieu Bost: saxophone, clarinet, Marten Ingle: bass, Thomas Join-Lambert, drums (not on this picture).
The group mixes standards from several generations. Their eclectic repertoire includes everything from Broadway jazz and swing to The Beatles and The Cure. Hear for yourself in this recording, made in an apartment in Paris:
