In Scene Report, musicians from all over the globe fill us in on what’s going on sonically in their hometowns—and homes away from home. This week Sydney Wayser gives the scoop on Paris, France.

When I think of walking around the stone streets of Paris, it doesn’t feel right unless I envision it with its very own soundtrack. That city gave us the amazing talents of musicians and songwriters like Jacques Brel, Edith Piaf and Serge Gainsbourg. Check out some of my favorite young French artists, and feel transported to one of the most visually and sonically stunning cities in the world.
