Life concert with Lisa Brune & Gins Allen at T.R.A.C.S

T.R.A.C.S proudly presents a French evening on Saturday March 10th
with two "Très Fantastique" concerts.
For all who want to be sure to get a good seat DJ Tim will entertain you from Noon SLT, with the best French chansons ! 
Lisa Brune was born near Paris in 1978 and she was lulled by the music listened by her Mum : Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Nina Simone as well as french artists named Leo Ferré, Georges Brassens or Serge Reggiani. During her teenage years she went to sleep listening Noir Desir, Alain Baschung, Nirvana…

It was in 2000 when she started to write her own songs with the help of her boyfriend and took part in a project for and made by students on the theme of Alice in Wonderland with the aim of helping in drug usage prevention. This project has been built during 2 years and led to 2 public performances. Her musical tastes become more precise when she discovers bands like Portishead, Massive Attack, Wax Tailor or The Gathering expanding her influences : from Rock to Trip Hop.
Lisa works in coup de coeur. Even if its musical preferences are particularly rock (in the broad sense, old rock,  current rock and rock metal), the trip-hop and jazz / blues artists, she can also have a sudden passion for Electro, rap or any other style.
Lisa arrived in Second Life out of curiosity and since 2009 she listens and discovers artists who are making the treasures of the live performances in SL.
She founded "Tree of Lovers" in January 2010 with J4ck Nichols, this place is dedicated to live performances and about 50 artists from different styles and backgrounds.
Supported by her BF (RL and SL), Lisa started to sing in world in July 2010.
She was invited in venues from different communities (french, italian, norwegian, german, american).
Thanks to concerts Lisa met Nemo Kranfel, a musician with whom she commit "musical crimes" by diverting, reinventing, original songs like "In Your Room" from Depeche Mode.
She sings mainly covers but Lisa wants to write her own songs as she did with a last song "Dry tears".

Gins Allen plays acoustic and electric guitars and harmonicas. He sings love songs, ballads and folk songs.
He started to play in SL in june 2008.
He loves to sing in many languages such as English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Yiddish, Catalan or even Czech and Russian...
His gigs are only live music, no soundtracks, and of high quality sound on profesionnals devices.
