Véronique Sanson | #veroniquesanson
(Véronique Marie-Line Sanson)
[1949-…], Boulogne-Billancourt, Île-de-France, France


Véronique Sanson is a three-time Victoires de la Musique Award-winning French singer-songwriter, musician, and producer with an avid following in her native country.

Véronique Sanson brings a very personal vocal style to the singing of French pop songs: her voice has a very strong tremolo.

Unlike most previous French artists of the Sixties and early Seventies, who mostly released EPs usually consisting of a collection of singles, B-sides and covers, Sanson was one of the first female artists to release actual albums with a full-length artistic statement and comprising songs flowing together thematically. In 1972, her breakthrough album, Amoureuse, was reviewed by many critics as groundbreaking, and ten years after Barbara, Véronique Sanson became one of the very first French female singer-songwriters to break into stardom.

One of her songs, “Amoureuse”, was covered in English in 1973 by singer Kiki Dee, and became a major hit in the United Kingdom, and has been covered since by various other singers, from Polly Brown (1973) to Olivia Newton-John (1974) and a dance-music version by Illusive, featuring Amanda Abbs (1997). In 1974, Patti Dahlstrom recorded a second version with her own lyrics, entitled “Emotion”, and this new version was covered by Helen Reddy (1974) and Shirley Bassey (1975). Many other covers of “Amoureuse” have been recorded in French, German, Japanese…

Not easy being a musician with a name like that and yet, from her first tentative steps to the present day, she has dedicated herself body and soul to music. Born to French resistance parents, she bears the V for victory as her first name. She also inherited a certain fiery independence of spirit. Although often in love, she was never dominated by the men she met and could always count on their help – Michel Berger and Stephen Stills, notably – always free in her compositions and in her musical career in general. Her life has been punctuated by a multitude of hits, Romanesque love stories and numerous adventures, and she will be coming to tell some of them on the Asse plain.
