Céline Schmink’s “Paris-Memphis” addresses itself to fans of romantic bluesy ballads and South music including two timeless classic folksongs she plays with the autoharp: “Lil’Liza Jane” and “Aura Lee” popularized by Presley as “Love me tender”. These 13 tracks are sung in Schmink’s signature: a dark and emotional timbre.

Her tracks are original and wholly her own. Her lyrics seem drawn from a travel diary. “I like to perform, to think about my past memories and of course I like trips and roads. Paris-Memphis celebrates the power of music to bring people together and focus on our common humanity” she explains.
