Everybody remembers Carla Bruni as top-model in the nineties. But she has been singing for the last five years. And her music is worth discovering.
After the success of "Quelqu'un m'a dit" in 2003, she just launched a new Album called "No Promises", sweet melodies pop folk, inspired by poems of William Buttler Yeats, Wystan Hugh Auden, Emily Dickinson, Christina Rossetti, Walter de la Mare and Dorothy Parker. The album just got imported in the US.
Grand-daughter of a specialist of Wagner, daugher of the pianist Marysa Borini and of a rich industrial, director of the Teatro Reggio di Torino and compositor Alberto Bruni Tedeshi, Carla Bruni is born among the notes of music. Along the years, she developped her own way of composing her songs. She observes the printed form of the text, read the first sentence, try to find her own personnal resonance to it and start playing the guitar. "I am convinced that writing must let its place to the notes and vice-versa. One sentence, trois notes and I know if a song is there..."she says.
Carla Bruni is whispering "les choses de la Vie" (things of life) in a deep, sensual, sensuous voice. It is like spending a very intimate moment with Carla Bruni.
