Here at Refinery29, our appreciation for French actress/model/singer Lou Doillon is no secret. Though she pretty much grew up in the public eye (she's the daughter of actress Jane Birkin and director Jacques Doillon, which makes her half-sister to Charlotte Gainsbourg), Doillon's musical career is still a relatively new endeavor. Even so, considering her artistic pedigree and striking presence on screen, it isn't a surprise that Doillon slipped behind a mic so effortlessly. Her first EP, Places, was a windswept folk record that enraptured everyone who heard it.
Now, we're happy to present the video premiere of her first-ever U.S. performance. The concert took place at the Lower Manhattan haunt Le Baron last summer and Doillon's as charming in songstress mode as she is unguarded in one-on-one mode. (As it turns out, Refinery29 photographed and interviewed her the very next day.) The clip, filmed for the 2013 Encore Sessions series sponsored by Absolut, features several songs and a Q&A with Doillon about her music. Check it out.
