Montreal based vocalist, songwriter and musician, Gigi French is ready to let you in on her new material. Heading to the studio to record at Hotel2Tango this winter, you can get a full sneak peak at her eclectic, chaotic and angry Francophone compositions set to upbeat and jazzy tunes now.

Known for frequently reinventing herself, Gigi French (Giselle Webber), has performed everything from trashy rock, to militant rap, to multilingual gangsta folk songs of the 1930s. Performing with a six member cabaret troupe of musicians, her music can be summarized as a trippy improvised concoction of percussion, upright bass, accordion, vibraphone and guitar. For a full sound and experience, best heard live.

Here’s a taste of what’s in store:

Gigi French is at Divan Orange (4234 Blvd Saint-Laurent) on October 16 at 9:30 p.m. $8
