About Pascal Sabattier (Pascalito)

Mediterrean by heart. Parisian by birth. New Yorker by choice. Latin by soul.
A dual French American “Citizen Chanteur”, as he bilingually bills himself, Pascal Sabattier was born and raised in Paris to a musical family of Mediterranean Jewish descent and relocated to New York in the late 90’s while still in his twenties. He holds a Bachelor in English and Economics from Sorbonne University and a Masters in International Business from Paris Institut Supérieur du Commerce (ISC Paris). A true renaissance man, Pascal consults in such various industries as financial services, luxury goods, fashion, cosmetic, restaurant and entertainments while performing as a vocalist and bandleader on the New York competitive jazz and world music scene. Under his stage moniker Pascalito, he has produced and released two albums, Le Blues d’Orphée (2007) and the critically acclaimed Neostalgia (2011). Blending pop, jazz, chanson, Mediterranean folk and Latin influences, he has been praised for his “handsome voice” (Time Out) and “delicious musical melting pot” (Jazz Times). Comparing him to a younger Aznavour, critic Christopher Loudon describes Pascalito as “at once a fine pop-jazz stylist and a superb storyteller” and also highlights his kinship with New York-based British jazz songbird Tessa Souter, “his fellow multicultural music anthropologist” (see related article). A published songwriter, his original work has been licensed and featured in several popular cable network shows including Burn Notice (USA), Damages (FX) and NCIS Los Angeles (CBS). As a freelance writer and translator, Pascal provides insightful comments and chronicles in French and English for various publications in Europe and the United States.
