Wilde World: Fabienne Delsol

Kim Wilde’s first records were written and produced by her father and brother, Marty and Ricky. The three of them have had a great influence on the music world, as this regular series ‘Wilde World’ shows.

Fabienne Delsol was born and grew up in France. In 1996, she moved to England, attracted by the London music scene. There she met the producers Liam Watson and Ed Deegan, and became the lead singer of the Bristols, a group produced by Watson and Deegan. That same year the group’s first single, “Questions I Can’t Answer”, was released by Damaged Goods. Delsol toured Europe for much of the next five years with other Damaged Goods acts.

After two albums and three singles, Delsol decided to pursue a solo career. In 2004, she and producer Liam Watson released ‘No Time for Sorrows’. The thirteen-track album had twelve songs in English and one in French. ‘Between You and Me’, Delsol’s second solo album, was also produced by Liam Watson. The album includes collaborations with George Miller and Peter Bernhard. Of the fourteen tracks, three are in French, including ‘Pas gentille’, a French version of Marty Wilde’s ‘Bad boy’, previously recorded by Françoise Hardy
