French electropop sensation Yelle is an ingenue for a new generation, blending the innocence of '60s chanson with the production savvy of contemporary dance music. As stylish as she is talented, the bubbly singer takes the stage at her live shows in cutting-edge stagewear, dancing energetically while charming audiences with her thickly accented banter. Whether she's jumping around to early favorites like "A Cause des Garcons" or treating fans to cuts from her highly anticipated third album, Yelle always brings the dance party on her fun-loving tours.
Yelle was formed in 2005 by singer Yelle, a.k.a. Julie Budet, and drummer/producer GrandMarnier, a.k.a. Jean-Francois Perrier. The duo's first track "Je Veux Te Voir" became a MySpace sensation in 2005, generating significant buzz and landing them a deal with Source Records. After adding producer Tepr to their lineup, Yelle released their debut LP Pop Up in 2007 to glowing reviews and a No. 8 position on the US Dance chart. The album landed two Top 20 hits on the French charts and earned the group legions of fans around the world, resulting in three years of touring in support of the album. Yelle released their sophomore LP Safari Disco Club in 2011, once again reaching the Top 10 on the US Dance chart before embarking on a critically acclaimed world tour. With their highly anticipated third album hitting shelves in 2014, Yelle once again has fans eager to catch them in concert.
