Based in Paris, FM Laeti's blend of R&B, jazz, and pop has seen her hailed as one of France's most exciting soul talents. Born in the village of Karukera in 1981 to a literature student mother and drummer father (who'd previously co-founded the zouk group Kassav'), Laeti began performing in jazz bars around Paris while also working as a costume designer and English-language voice-over artist. She was spotted by multi-instrumentalist François-Marie Dru, and after signing to Wagram Records, the pair began work on her debut album, It Will All Come Around. Featuring the lead single "Rise in the Sun" and a collaboration with Malawi vocalist Fatoumata Diawara (Coco), it was released to critical acclaim in late 2011.
