Adrienne Murphy, Hot Press magazine journalist, writes about The Jeanie Johnston Concert

“Even before we hear the resonant voice of Caroline Moreau, the joy and command with which she takes the stage signals the French chanteuse as a natural diva. Tonight she plays on Dublin’s River Liffey, aboard the replica of the 19th century tall ship, the Jeanie Johnson.

“What Caroline Moreau does is simultaneously meet our expectations and blow them to smithereens… A tour de force of some of the darkest, Frenchest tunes in history. Serge Gainsbourg, Jacques Brel and of course, The Little Sparrow Edith Piaf, take the stage, channelled via Moreau, telling their tales of soulless employment and disappearing lovers with a vibrancy that is thrilling.
Moreau embodies the voice of each song, not only with her own very sturdy pipes, but also with her body and soul: she becomes the entire world of the song, and proves herself to be a convincing actress in the process.”

“While it’s impossible for a studio recording to capture all the charm of those live performances, her new CD “Paris Is Burning” does do a great job of showcasing her technical skill as a singer.”
