Acclaimed Jazz Vocalist Madeleine Peyroux LIVE in Santa Barbara (3/17)

March 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDT

Highly acclaimed blues and jazz vocalist Madeleine Peyroux will be performing at Lobero Theater on March 17th (ticket info). At the performance, the internationally recognized singer will be premiering new music from her long-awaited upcoming album, which will be announced shortly. Fans that attend the show will be the first to hear these new works in advance of the album’s release later this year.

As a teen performing on the streets of Paris, Peyroux exemplified attributes akin to legendary jazz singer Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald. This garnered the attention of Atlantic Records, which lead to her breakthrough debut album in 1996– Dreamland, which sold around 200,000 copies. This record featured a bevy of noted jazz artists (Marc Ribot, Vernon Reid, Cyrus Chesnut, Charlie Giordano, Greg Cohen, Kenny Wollesen, Regina Carter, Leon Parker, Leon Parker, and James Carter) and drew praise for her unique interpretation of blues and jazz standards. This album solidified her place as a vital contemporary artist with a penchant for classic styles.

Peyroux’s follow-up albums in 2004 Careless Love and 2006’s Half The Perfect World (via Rounder Records, produced by Larry Klein) received critical acclaim and went on to achieve gold certification. Peyroux has continued to cut a low-key, if no less lauded, career path. With her inspiration she has continued to evolve, carving out her own stylistic niche that balances a modern sensibility with a respect for older vocal traditions.

In 2016, Peyroux released her seventh studio album, Secular Hymns. Self-produced by herself, this record featured a mix of soul, jazz, blues, and dub sounds, which included covers of songs by Townes Van Zandt, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Willie Dixon, Linton Kwesi Johnson, and others.

Named after the Leonard Cohen song covered on the album, Peyroux reunited with longtime producer Klein for her 2019 album Anthem. Reflecting on the contemporary political conversation, Anthem featured all new songs (excepting the title track by Leonard Cohen), co-written with Larry Klein, guitarist and lyricist David Baerwald, organist Patrick Warren and drummer Brian MacLeod.
