Biography

She's noted French singer Didier Blanc's daughter, but Olivia Ruiz really made a name for herself with a stint on the inaugural Star Academy television show (France's version of American Idol) in 2001. That led to a record deal, and her debut, J'aime pas l'Amour, was nominated for a Victoires de la Musique award. Despite her numerous legs up in the music world, Ruiz has always proved to follow her own muse, choosing to travel a sly, strange musical route rather than aim for the top of the pop charts. She asked a handful of her favorite musicians to pen songs for her first album; it worked so well that more signed on for the follow-up -- and Ruiz began trying her hand at composing as well. Her childish voice contrasts with the knowing, orchestral and at times carnival-esque nature of her songs.
