LIO_ DES FLEURS POUR UN CAMELEON_ ORIGINALY RELEASED 1991

She’s now back. She never really left. One just thought she was lost. After being labelled successively Electro Pop Lolita (Premier Album), traditional French song performer (Amour Toujours) or French Cancan Diva (Cancan) with the same cheeky success, the chameleon Lio is landing in London to make the most out of her new providential meeting - like those which seem to ponctuate her career since the beginning - Etienne Daho.

Des Fleurs Pour Un Caméléon is released in 1991, under the general direction of famous French singer/producer Etienne Daho. Recorded in London, this album is clearly influenced by the English pop-rock style of that time, however, what is remarkable here is Lio’s ability to endorse a new musical character, complementing once again her multifaceted personality. Lio’s performance here is tinged with soft and deep intonations, colored by her now famous "Joyful despair" approach.

Without overshadowing her protégée’s performance, Daho’universe is omnipresent: keyboards and guitars are harmoniously intermingling untill it reaches its homogeneous and flawless climax, melodies are catchy without being overlighted, and Lio’s smoother voice is perfectly completing this musical atmosphere. Whether it is on the electric Je Me tords, on the famous cover Girl From Ipanema, or on the single L’autre Joue (brilliantly illustraded by a video directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, the director of Amélie Poulain’s worldwide success), the touch of producer Daho is felt everywhere; add to this the collaboration of talented and confirmed artists like Gota or long time lyric writer Jacques Duvall, and you have the almost palpable ambiance of this musical journey. Des Fleurs Pour Un Caméléon maybe didn’t match the incredible commercial success of some of its predecessors, however, exactly like the underestimated movie Chambre à Part she co-stared with French music legend Jacques Dutronc at the same period, sometimes, the chameleon is doing its job so perfectly that it remains unnoticed...
