Fluent in Russian, Spanish, English, and French, Fantine is a unique talent with a musical style that reflects her cultural diversity, and is described as a fusion of indie and electro soul. Fantine sees her passion for music as an outlet for self-expression, and this is observed in the great emphasis she places on the lyrics she writes, hoping in that way to connect with all those who listen to her.
Fantine first broke out on the Australian scene in 2010 as guest vocalist and co-writer with Space Invadas (featuring Katalyst and Steve Spacek). Together, they performed across Australia at festivals like Days Like This!, Playground Weekender, Future Music, Golden Plains, and Splendour in the Grass.
She also graced the stages as a support act for Daniel Merriweather and second vocalist for Dave Stewart as he performed hits from both the Eurythmics and his solo career as the special guest on Stevie Nicks’ “In Your Dreams” tour.
This year, Fantine worked on her debut album I Am Fantine with Cuban-American producer Emilio Estefan and international superstar Gloria Estefan, which was recently released and quickly rose to the Top 10 of Billboard’s Dance Charts. Many selections from the new album will be performed at Festival Miami.
Joining Fantine on stage are Tim Mitchell (musical director, guitars), Albert Menendez (keyboards), Olqui Chirino (vocals, acoustic guitar, keyboards), Sarah Packiam (vocals), Steve Ager (bass guitar, vocals), Andy Russell (drums, percussion), and Danny Lopez (percussion).
