Constance Amiot

Constance Amiot (born 1978) is a writer-composer-performer of songs in French and English in an acoustic pop-folk style.

Born to French parents in Abidjan in the Ivory Coast, she grew up in Cameroon and the United States, settling in Paris in 2000. She began her music career as a pianist in a rock group named Virus that performed cover versions of Guns N' Roses songs, all the while pursuing her studies in law, literature and sound engineering. She adopted then the guitar as her instrument of preference, influenced by artists like Tracy Chapman.

After a first self-produced album Whisperwood (2003), she next recorded an album in New York called Fairytale, (April 2007 on the Tôt ou tard label), with the participation of Jeff Pevar, Ben Wisch, Sean Pelton, François Moutin and the contribution of some lyrics by Jérôme Attal.
