Her second album was the 2000 "Vingt à Trente Mille Jours" (20 to 30 thousand days); this second album was long awaited by fans, and helped broaden her exposure and appeal internationally. In 2005, "Une saison volée" was released. Most recently, after numerous tours in France and abroad (notably Germany), she released in 2008 her latest album, "à l'aveuglette" (roughly translated as "blindly" -- as in, searching). She is on numerous compilations (such as the popular "Le Pop" compilation series of "la nouvelle scène française"), and also appears on Calexico's live DVD "World Drifts In: Live at the Barbican" (2004). By any other name... The name "Françoiz Breut" is a pseudonym; this name itself was purportedly adopted by Ms. Breut after her original stage name, Françoiz Brrr, was incorrectly reported in the media.
(The sound is roughly similar; "Brrr" (or "Breut") would be pronounced like "brew" or "broot".) Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
