Lou Doillon: Live in London

French singer Lou Doillon takes to the stage in London tonight, giving a UK audience the chance to see on of France's most promising artists.

Doillon's been an actress and a model, and is the daughter of Jane Birkin, giving her perhaps a head start on other singers, but the quality of her work puts her beyond any accusation of favouritism.

Doillon may be the daughter of Jane Birkin, but her debut album Places sees her stand on her own merits.

It's an assured collection that deserved the critical acclaim it received, as well as the Female Artist of the year award at the Victoire de la musique awards in February.

Of course, the fact that the video for her song Angel or Devil was shot in Scotland, in Glasgow and Glencoe, certainly endeared her to this critic.

While the album was released in France in September last year, it recently got a release in the UK which no doubt helped bring her to the country.

She's playing live extensively in France, but the chance to see her in the UK is one well worth taking. Hopefully we'll see her back here for more live dates before too long.
