8 1/2 Souvenirs

Although based in Austin, Texas, the retro-swing outfit 8 Souvenirs drew much of their inspiration from European artists like Django Reinhardt, Serge Gainsbourg and Nino Rota; led by French expatriate singer/guitarist Olivier Giraud, the group was formed in 1988, and originally also comprised bassist Todd Wulfmeyer and drummer Adam Berlin. Classically trained pianist Glover Gill was the next to join; with the arrival of vocalist Juliana Sheffield, 8 Souvenirs' lineup was complete, and in 1995 they recorded their debut LP Happy Feet. Sauvonica, recorded with new vocalist Chrysta Bell, followed in 1998, and a year later the group returned with Twisted Desire. Jason Ankeny
