Xuân is a French artist with Vietnamese and Chinese origins. She is a songwriter and a light-lyric soprano singer with pop, rock, soul musical influences.
In her musical tale « Winter Rêverie », Xuân takes us – and she does this with some personal emotion – to her magical universe inspired by manga culture, Japanese animation and fantastic films.
« Winter Rêverie » is about loss, nostalgia and hope.
This is the story of a young girl with an unquiet spirit tormented by her past, present and future. To forget the pain, the girl escapes into a parallel world, between dreams and reality, and gradually sinks into a sweet madness. This is the winter of her life, the troubled waters.
This debut album is written in English and is the first of a tetralogy. This is as well a spiritual quest divided into four albums, four seasons and the four elements that govern the natural order, in a Dark Fantasy universe.
She produced her debut album in partnership with composer/arranger Loïc Lannoy and with Urban Groove Team directed by composer/arranger/producer David Lafilay.
The French mangaka VanRah ( Stray Dog / Glénat ) illustrated this album and the cover artwork is used on this website background.

Once upon a time, there was a little girl who lost a loved one. She put her life on hold and took care of others to overcome the grief and distress of loss.
She had lived by the rules for several years to fit into the real world where she met her first demons. She froze her heart and escaped to another world, between dreams and reality, to seek refuge and forget the pain.
