    Here is the write-up from the Chrononaut website (

    Veronique Chevalier accompanied by Seth Bedford: In a class of her own, MADemoiselle Chevalier is a madly eccentric chanteuse known as the “Weird VAL” of Dark Cabaret, and has been described by some as a campy incarnation of Edith Piaf from a parallel universe.

    A cross-section of her repertoire reveals such gems as her parody of “La Vie En Rose” re-imagined as “Escargots”, bemoaning her challenged relationship with the tiny French mollusks. Her unforgettable cover of Jim Morrison’s “People Are Strange” does solemn honor to a man who, “had the good taste to die and be buried in Paris.” She has also co-written and performs a number of originals with Seth.

    Seth Bedford is a New York-based composer, arranger, lyricist, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and visual artist Seth blends the musical idioms of Weimar kabarett, American jazz, Tin Pan Alley, French chanson, tango, New Wave and a variety of other musical sources to create a sound that defies categorization. As a composer, he’s written music for cabaret, theater, film and the symphonic concert hall, and he is also the artistic director and vocalist for Huxley Vertical Cabaret Nouveau, an 8-piece acoustic cabaret orchestra performing primarily in New York’s Greenwich and East Village
