A Little Piz-Zaz: Zaz and "Port Coton"

Port Coton is the title of the random song of today. It is sung by French singer-songwriter Isabelle Geffroy, known by her stage name as Zaz. Mixing jazzy style, French variety, soul and acoustic genres, she became famous on the strength of her first album, the eponymously named Zaz (2010). After a childhood steeped in music education she started her musical career in 2001 singing in musical groups and as a backup singer. She released Zaz in 2010 to great acclaim, especially her single Je Veux, and has since won awards and has toured. She has released two more albums since, Recto Verso and Paris. Port Coton can be found on her debut album Zaz, and was written by French pop singer Raphaël Haroche.
