Versailles’ latest musical offering "Sacrifice" is now available through BFM Digital via iTunes, Versailles’ website, Amazon, Rhapsody, and Facebook. "Sacrifice" was produced and written by Dianna St. Hilaire (pictured above)—Versailles’ front woman and multitalented musician. She brings what some have described as an “intoxicating, dark synth, sexual-based gloomy yet erotic adventure into an orchestra led by Versailles’ brilliant ringleader, Ms. St. Hilaire, which leaves the listener eager for more.” Versailles is one of the best upcoming artists of the evolution of the future of music. Famous engineer Eric Greedy, who has worked with the likes of The Smashing Pumpkins, Destiny’s Child, Ringo Starr and Barbara Streisand, lends a hand as assistant producer and engineer on this EP. Often referred to as the “Gothic Tori Amos,” Dianna has delved into writing songs that blend Depeche Mode, Goldfrapp, Lykki Li, Foster The People, and Madonna.
Versailles has attracted international interest via radio, film and live performances. Versailles toured nationally, playing with artists including Ego Likeness, Voltaire, New Model Army, Chant, and Bella Morte. Versailles was most recently in the indie film "Black Room Doom," written by notorious psycho Svengali producer Kim Fowley, who has co-written/produced songs for Kiss, Joan Jett, Alice Cooper, Helen Reddy, and the first all-female rock band, The Runaways. Versailles is also featured on the score for upcoming UK production of Rob Hurtt’s “ Weir Inn Estate.”
Dianna St. Hilaire uses her programming skills, keyboard and vocal talents to write and produce her songs. Versailles performed at this year’s Pink Parlour Festival and The Aids Circle of Life Walk, and is in the works of launching an international tour in celebration of releasing “Sacrifice,” starting with U.S. dates in 2012.
The songs are dark and ominous, yet fun and inviting--synthpop sounds with distinct melody lines and aggressive orchestrations. Songs encompass a wide variety of subject matter, including love, vampires, war, the human soul, strength, and struggle. Now bringing light into the ashes, and determined through music to guide the lonely and heartbroken out of the abyss.
Versailles is an all in one artist. Versailles does not do cover songs. All songs are original and are based on dance, electro, synthpop, and darkwave. Versailles has an elaborate light setup and performances which include burlesque/dark attire. Versailles performances include piano, keytar, backing dance tracks, guitar and vocals. Available for any type of show including parties and weddings.
