Dizzy Moon Live @ Orange ’Ear June 2013
One cello & one voice. Dizzy Moon is a singular project that proposes an extremely sensitive combination, where the richness of the cello sounds mingles with Maryse’s limpid and ethereal voice and bring a beautiful and intimate music. With songs mostly in english, rarely in french, one lets himself get carried away by the smooth and airy unity with folk and indi influences. A rooted blues also tinkles & reveals our own feeling.
2009 was born the Project Dizzy Moon. It’s Maryse Guédon’s solo project as a french cellist and singer.
Since her beginning at Festival de poche ( Tours, France), Dizzy Moon combined her photograph exhibition with her concerts at Galerie Mauicio Cordero (In the pocket,2009), at the library in Chambray-les-Tours (Photofolies en Touraine,2010).
