Fantine to tour with Stevie Nicks and play Upstairs Beresford.

FANTINE to perform final show of 2011 at Upstairs Beresford and then join Stevie Nicks’ In Your Dreams Australia Tour as support vocalist for special guest Dave Stewart.

After a successful tour of Australia and New Zealand, young indie electro soul singer FANTINE has returned to Sydney for her final show of the year. Performing her second single ELEVEN at 11:11 p.m. on 11/11/11 at Upstairs Beresford, FANTINE’s ELEVEN delves into the superstition and mysticism of the number “Eleven.”

Right after her final show on 11/11/11 at Upstairs Beresford, FANTINE will hit the road and travel throughout Australia as support vocalist for DAVE STEWART (EURYTHMICS) who is the special guest on the STEVIE NICKS In Your Dreams Tour. FANTINE will support DAVE STEWART as he performs hits from both his solo career and EURYTHMICS.

2011 has been busy for FANTINE. In addition to the release of her first two singles, “Rubberoom” and “Eleven,” recording her upcoming single with Gorillaz producer JASON COX in Studio 13 co-owned by DAMON ALBARN, and a support slot for DANIEL MERRIWEATHER, FANTINE headlined her first ever tour of Australia and New Zealand.

FANTINE first came onto the Australian scene in 2010 as guest vocalist and co-writer with SPACE INVADAS ( featuring KATALYST and Steve Spacek) which included performances at Days Like This, Playground Weekender, Future Music, Golden Plains, Splendour In The Grass, and support slots with Lupe Fiasco, taking the stage solo has come naturally to FANTINE .

FANTINE (full name Fantine Pritoula) was born in Moscow to a Russian father and a Dominican mother.

FANTINE spent her youth traveling and living in three countries she now calls home; Russia, the Dominican Republic, and Australia.

Adapting to new surroundings comes easily to FANTINE and she is not afraid to discover the new and explore the unknown. Her sense of worldliness comes from absorbing the elements of the cultures that surround her and making them her own.

Fluent in Russian, Spanish, English, and French, FANTINE is a unique talent with a musical style that reflects her cultural diversity. Described as a fusion of indie and electro soul, FANTINE maintains an organic sound that is produced through the natural timbre of her voice. Hoping to connect in some way to everyone who listens to her music, FANTINE uses her passion for writing music as an outlet for self expression and places great emphasis on the lyrics she writes.

"Immensely remarkable, the bonus is she has the songs and the charisma to be successful on the world stage real, and witnessing her set felt like seeing a star on the rise."
