Born to a musical family in Cotes d'Armor, France, Yelle started playing music from an early age and began recording her own tunes and taking piano lessons as a teen. She met producer and beatmaker GrandMarnier in 2000 and eventually used some of his sample tracks to back her half-sung, half-spoken French Euro pop. Her first public performance came in the fall of 2006 and her debut full-length LP, Pop Up was accompanied by a healthy internet buzz when it appeared in 2007.
Yelle Concert Films
Runtime: 59 minYelle is a French band founded by lead singer and namesake Yelle (Julie Budet) and GrandMarnier (Jean-François Perrier). A third member, Tepr (Tanguy Destable), joined the band before the recording of its debut album. Budet and GrandMarnier began working on music together in 2000. The band came to prominence when it posted an early version of the song "Je veux te voir" on MySpace in September 2005, which later reached the top five in France. The success of the song on MySpace attracted the attention of a record label, which set them to work on its debut album, Pop Up, which was released in 2007. The group's second album, Safari Disco Club was released in 2011.
Even though the group's songs are sung exclusively in French, they have enjoyed a significant following overseas in non-French-speaking countries
