New Joint: "Reservation For Two" (Fantine)

Fantine is an Electro-Soul singer/songwriter/performer with Jazz roots who has an unwavering sense of self and a determined attitude to match. Fantine bursts into the scene with “Reservation For Two”, her new single from her upcoming debut album I Am Fantine, produced by the legendary Emilio Estefan.

Her talent and musical style reflect her cultural diversity — a fusion of Indie and Electro Soul. Fantine is passionate about music and pours her creativity into the lyrics she writes, to build an emotional connection with her audience. Fluent in Russian, Spanish, English, and French, Fantine resides in Miami, but was born in Moscow, during Russian glasnost to a Dominican mother and Russian father. She grew up listening to traditional Russian church and folk music, along to contemporary tunes from her favorite artists, including Gloria Estefan and Whitney Houston. In addition, these icons — Sade, Erykah Badu and Mariah Carey — influenced her greatly. She recently performed several nights at New York City’s legendary Blue Note and performed the national anthem at the Miami Dolphins game.

Fantine is also featured on the upcoming film to be released Spring 2015, A Change of Heart, which is produced by Emilio Estefan and directed by Kenny Ortega. The film also stars Jim Belushi, Kathy Najimy and William Levy.

The song "Reservation For Two" was inspired by Emilio Estefan's suggestion to create a song around the phrase "reservation for two”. From that inspiration, we collaborated with Dania Perez and Javier Conde to create the song, which conveys the story about a mature relationship between two people and the conversation that occurs when they come to the end of the line. It's about life, it's about marriage and all its complexities, it's a final cry for help.

With that said, take a listen below to "Reservation For Two" and Enjoy!
