Flossie Malavialle

Coming home recently I had the car radio tuned to one of our local radio stations and was surprised when they played a track by Flossie Malavialle from her new CD of Jacques Brel songs. So, of course, I immediately googled her and found the widget which has been on the side bar for the past couple of weeks. I hope you have been making use of said widget and appreciating the music as much as I have.

Flossie's MySpace url: and her web site in French and English here:

There is an interview with Flossie on nick 365 here:

Flossie Malavialle, born and raised in Nimes in southern France, arrived in Britain five years ago on a year's teaching exchange. She'd asked for Edinburgh, they sent her to Grangefield comprehensive, in Stockton.

"Maybe it was my accent," she supposes disingenuously. "Scotland,
Stockton, perhaps they sounded the same." This is the North East

The really surprising thing is to hear her speaking with a Geordie accent (no bad thing).
