French female singers with raspy voice

I would like to introduce to you my favorite French female singers with beautiful gravelly voices. I appreciate smoky strained voiced singers from low to deep to high-pitched and have fallen for Zaz, Carla Bruni and Vanessa Paradis. 

Meet my favorite raspy voiced French singers : 

This French singer & songwriter with high-pitched raspy voice hooked my heart aafter I discovered her song Eblouie par la nuit at the end of the american film titled Dead Man Down which came out in 2013. 

Her real name is Isabelle Geffroy, she is 34 years old comes from Tours, France. She became famous in France for her hit "Je veux", from her first album, Zaz, released on 10 May 2010. But I think Eblouie par la nuit written by pop singer Raphaël Haroche put her on the international scene.  

Russell Crowe is also fond of Zaz's songs. Yes, the star chose one of Zaz's songs as motivation song when doing sports. The New Zealand actor who is famous for his role in the 2000 historical epic film Gladiator, confessed that he climbs the moutain listening to Eblouie par la nuit. He also tweeted in June about how Zaz's album Zaz is his favourite new album. I wonder if he speaks French...

She finally left school at 19 to become a model where she found fame.

In January 2010, her song "L'amoureuse" was featured in an episode of NBC's Chuck, "Chuck vs. First Class".

She met the ex-French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, in November 2007 at a dinner party and they got married on 2 February 2008 at the Élysée Palace in Paris. The marriage is Carla's first and Sarkozy's third. On 19 October 2011, Carla Bruni gave birth to their daughter, Giulia, in Paris
