On Wednesday, July 26, will start the 14th edition of the Jazz à l’Hospitalet festival, and Imany is doing us the honour of kicking it off!
She chose Imany as her stage name — it means « my faith » or « my hope » in arabic — and she writes her songs in English, because the language comes more naturally to her when writing than French. She starts out as an opening act for Angie Stone, Wasis Diop, Anthony Hamilton, Hocus Pocus, Sly Johnson and Ben l'Oncle Soul.
Her first EP, Acoustic Sessions, is released on legal downloading platforms in late 2010. In May, 2011 she launches her first album, The Shape of a Broken Heart, which soon becomes platinum, in great part due to the success of her first single, You will never know.
In 2016, Imany releases her second EP, There Were, Tears, as a prelude to her upcoming album, The Wrong Kind of War, which is released in August of that same year.
Check her out on July 26 at Château l’Hospitalet!
