"Fierce Flowers have not just embraced Americana, they have grabbed it by the lapels and plunged it into their own pot-boiler blend of Parisian and European flavours. The trio manage to switch seamlessly between English and French, with all three taking a turn on lead vocals, and knitting each instrument into a patchwork swathe of rhythm and melody. They are an ensemble whose music is an absolute delectation to discover. Bon appetit!" Folk Radio UK January 2020
Fierce Flowers is a folk trio from Paris. Guitarist Léopoldine Guillaume, German violin and banjo player Julia Zech and American/Armenian double bassist Shushan Kerovpyan first met in 2016 on a canal barge in Paris’ 19ème arrondissement. The trio began playing together, their voices locking together in a mélange of close harmony, individual instruments coalescing into a pattern of danceable rhythms and rooted arrangements, and all housed within original songs written in both English and French.
While they continue to play traditional repertoire, they have developed their own sound. Their compositions in French and English remain connected to roots music.
