Born in the north of France from a French mother and an American father, Singer-Songwriter Line Beauclair crafts music influenced by both countries. Her sultry yet ingenue style, complimented by her distinctive vocals, is inspired by 60s French icons such as Jane Birkin and Françoise Hardy, and shining US stars such as Britney Spears or Lana Del Rey, creating an authentic and innovative musical identity. ‘Soft’ is Line’s debut single. The song begins with touching guitar and emotionally rich instrumentals, complimenting the vulnerable lyrics and gentle voice of the artist.
‘Soft’ is a song that illustrates the moment in a relationship where both partners are truly vulnerable with each other. When we are ‘Soft’ and expose ourselves to hurt is also when the deepest connections can be made. Beauclair says that “I think this song captures the universal feeling letting go and being truly ourselves with another person, something that becomes harder every day in a society where appearances carry such weight”.
Despite her young age, Line prides herself in being the sole songwriter on all her tracks. Her songs insightfully touch on love, growing up and navigating tumultuous relationships, all while exploring variations of the pop genre, putting an emphasis on lyrics and innovative beats.
Line explains where she draws inspiration, “Growing up I was surrounded by 60s French music and was heavily influenced by their ability to craft intelligent songs with deeper meaning all while creating a magnetic vibe and atmosphere. It really helped me integrate the idea that lyrics do not need to sacrifice melody or energy. I was able to understand that further thanks to American artists like Lana Del Rey or Taylor Swift, that are able to brilliantly combine both to create true pop anthems. I am now based in Paris but have lived all over France, which has inspired me greatly, and writing in places such as St Tropez and New York City have truly helped me refine my musical style.”
About her debut single “Soft”, Line further describes the track as “A song that I hope helps people be more open and vulnerable - something to remind you that putting up a front can sometimes be very detrimental, and that we all need to be gentle with ourselves and others from time to time”.
