“The great interpreter of a poetic lyric.” The Guardian
“The only thing that matters is the song,” says Madeleine Peyroux. That conviction together with a truly unique voice has carried her from busking on the streets of Paris to international acclaim. A brilliant lyricist and composer in her own right, she established her career covering the masters - Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Lennon and McCartney, and the legends of American country, jazz and blues like Bessie Smith and Ray Charles.
Frequently compared to the great Billie Holliday for her gorgeous, smoky tone and distinctive phrasing, she seamlessly fuses musical genres to create an entirely new sound. In 2007 she was named Best International Jazz Artist at the BBC Jazz Awards and her albums, including Careless Love, Bare Bones, and the latest, The Blue Room, sell in millions.
Georgia born, New York and Paris bred, Madeleine Peyroux brings her languidly sensual voice and her fabulous ensemble to Hong Kong for the very first time. You’ve heard nothing like it. Simply fabulous.
