Singer, writer of lyrics and poetry, filmmaker and performance artist, Marianne Dissard tours extensively the world over, either solo or with her Tucson and New York-based bandmates. Over the course of four acclaimed albums released worldwide, she has collaborated with Tucson's sweethearts Calexico, Howe Gelb, Na¯m Amor, Sergio Mendoza and Brian Lopez as well as with her extended family outside of Arizona, including chanteuse Fran§oiz Breut, choreographer Ami Garmon, composer Christian Ravaglioli and Rhymesayers producer BK-One. ----------------------x---------------------------- Marianne Dissard's second 'official' album, œL'Abandon (2011) was released worldwide in early 2011 with year-round touring in Europe, New Zealand, Australia and North America. Produced by Marianne, with Jim Waters (Jon Spencer, Sonic Youth) and BK-One (Rhymesayers, Brother Ali), œL'Abandon was recorded with Christian Ravaglioli from Italy, Luke Doucet from Canada, Arthur Vint, Connor Gallaher, Sergio Mendoza (Y La Orkesta, Calexico N.A), Brian Lopez (Mostly Bears) and Th¸ger Lund (Giant Sand). The release includes a companion DVD, the bawdy burlesque remake, directed by Marianne, of the Andy Warhol's 1968 western, œLonesome Cowboys. ----------------------x---------------------------- In 2010, Marianne released her 'intermediary' album, œParis One Takes (2010) (œ8/10³ Blurt, œa fantastic album. 4/5 Stars Venus Magazine, œDefinitely one of our favorite albums of 2010³ Lucid Culture) as a free download, in gratitude to her fans. She attended SXSW 2010, blogging about the festival for The Huffington Post and toured the US with Fran§oiz Breut, including a show at the Museum of Modern Art MOMA in NYC. Between Chanson and Americana, Marianne Dissard's enchanting debut album, œL'Entredeux (2008), was produced and composed by Calexico's Joey Burns, with stellar contributions by friends from both continents, including Calexico's John Convertino on drums, Na¯m Amor, Rob Burger, Sammy Decoster and Mickey Raphael. œL'Entredeux was released worldwide in the Fall 2008, with 15 months of touring from Europe to New Zealand and North America. The album won a prestigious Coup De Coeur from France's Acad©mie Charles Cros in 2009 and was voted in the Top 10 French albums of the decade by Francophile bloggers. œA moody, captivating album, with roots in Nick Drake's introspection, Francoise Hardy's romanticism and Nina Simone's drama. writes Blurt Magazine.
