About Fabrice

 

Born in France, Fabrice spent his adolescence in Italy, and settled in Toronto where he transports audiences to the cafés of Paris through his subtle, melodious phrasings.

Toronto Star music critic, Geoff Chapman had this to say about Fabrice’s playing:  “…it was grand to hear Fabrice Sicco assert his accordion, thus adding a rich textured cushion of sound – and making the mood even more Parisian” – December 2000. 

Twice recipient  of the Best Traditional Jazz Album award presented by the Canadian Collectors’ Congress. Fabrice has appeared at numerous prestigious venues, including the Sound of Toronto Jazz series, South American music festivals, the Aylmer Jazz Festival and the Du Maurier Downtown Jazz Festival.

Self-taught on chromatic button accordion, guitar, saxophone and other various instruments, Fabrice has composed for award-winning films and currently performs both as a soloist and with various bands. His own band, Swing Valse, offers a repertory of musical forms evoking cosmopolitan Parisian life from the 1920s to 1950s, including chansons, gypsy music, and
