Interview with Fleche Love (Singer/Songwriter)

In this episode, I speak with Fleche Love, a singer and songwriter whose work I’ve been enjoying for years now. Fleche is a talented artist who had to create her own path. Originally from Switzerland, and now living in Paris, she’s the type of artist who isn’t scared to share her vulnerability and passions with the world, whether it’s through song, through dance or through words.
