‘The only thing that matters is the song’ says singer songwriter Madeleine Peyroux. A conviction that along with a ‘one of a kind ‘ voice has carried the award winning artist from busking on the streets of Paris, all the way to stardom.

Sixteen years after her Dreamland debut, it is not hard to see why Peyroux’s genre defying blend of jazz and pop continues to enthrall the music world.

Through six universally praised albums ‘Jazz’s brightest star’ has gained a reputation for an impeccable choice of material, creating a genuine buzz of anticipation amongst fans and the industry at large.

Lending her seductively expressive voice to classic standards as well as thoroughly modern tunes, Peyroux has made an undiminishing mark as an uncanny and insightful ‘interpreter’.

From Holiday to Dylan, Bessie Smith to Leonard Cohen, Peyroux sheds a striking new light onto familiar musical gems while making each phrase and croon her very own, some say ‘creating new classics along the way’.

The free spirited singer, songwriter and guitarist began her musical adventure as a teenager in Paris, when ‘drawn to the music of the streets’, the 15 year old left high school and joined a touring blues and jazz band. ‘Someone gave me early Columbia recordings with Billie Holiday and instructed me to learn the songs’.

Determined Peyroux grasped not just the melody changes, choice of tone and phrasing but the power of the iconic artist’s presence. “It was by learning Billie’s mannerisms that I was learning to listen to my own’ she explains.”

Years later, her undeniable talent was spotted at a New York club by Atlantic Records’ Yves Beauvais who signed her to the label and co-produced her 1996 debut album Dreamland. Peyroux’s dreamily husky voice enchanted punters and critics alike but it was the 2004 Careless Love that proved to be a milestone release for the artist, bringing mainstream recognition and marking the start of a prolific collaboration with producer Larry Klein.

Peyroux has come a long way from the streets of Paris to the word’s grandest concert halls and collaborating with the some of the world’s finest musicians. Still, where other artists might rest on their laurels and bask in the glory of countless gushing reviews, Peyroux continues to fearlessly explore new territories.

The charmingly humble artist who ‘didn’t have any expectation of becoming someone that could make a dent in the outside world.’ has done just that.

‘There is no telling what the future will bring’ but it is clear to see that Madeleine Peyroux’s musical journey is only just beginning..

Jon Herington
Jon Herington is the veteran touring and recording guitarist for Steely Dan and The Dukes of September Rhythm Revue (featuring Donald Fagen, Boz Scaggs, and Michael McDonald), and the lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter for the New York City based JON HERINGTON BAND. Jon’s newest solo release Time On My Hands (nominated for Vintage Guitar Magazine “ALBUM of the YEAR” for 2013 Hall of Fame) reflects the bluesy, driving rock that had its gestation in the club scene, and is now available at jonherington.com, Amazon and on iTunes. The undeniable chemistry of the band, built on a lifetime of collaboration with Dennis Espantman on bass and Frank Pagano on drums, is clearly evident in this collection of ten original songs.

Barak Mori
Barak Mori (Bass, Composer) has been one of the New York jazz scene’s most sought after musicians since 1998. Born in Tel Aviv, Israel in 1975, Mori began playing the organ at age seven, and by the age of 13 was playing jazz on the guitar and electric bass. At age 15, in addition to his jazz studies, Mori began his classical training on the acoustic bass. By the time Mori had graduated from the Thelma Yelin School of the Arts he had already played professionally at the world renowned Red Sea Jazz Festival, and toured internationally with the Young Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra. In 1996, Mori joined Israel’s most prestigious jazz band led by saxophonist Walter Blanding, Jr. In 1998, he received a scholarship to study at the New School University. Residing in New York for the past 16 years, Mori has performed and recorded alongside many distinguished artists such as Benny Green, Peter Bernstein, Eric Reed, Paula West, Kenny Washington, David Hazeltine, Jim Rotondi, Peter Cincotti, Marcus Printup and Madeleine Peyroux.

    Madeleine sings with a honeyed voice as compelling as an original thought.

  13. Bob B. July 19, 2016 at 3:09 pm #

    Still remember the first time I heard her voice in a small cafe in Morocco. Had a tricky time getting the owner to understand that I wanted to know the name of the singer on the CD. Pure magic!

    Omelette du fromage

  15. Scott July 19, 2016 at 3:53 pm #

    I have only recently gotten to know her music, and I guess all I can say is better late than never!
    It would be great to see her live!

  16. Gabe Adams July 19, 2016 at 4:22 pm #

    she is amazing

  21. Maya July 20, 2016 at 12:18 pm #

    About 5 years ago hearing her sing “dance me to the end of night” was my lullaby … when my husband of 17 years had an affair with my best friend…. We all turn to music and it was Madelines voice that carried me through some tough times.
    I would love to see her!!!

  22. roy nifoussi July 20, 2016 at 9:45 pm #

    What a terrific line up. I would love to go.

  23. Alison July 21, 2016 at 12:27 pm #

    I’d like to go to this show, but why? I found out about her through other similar female singers like Sharon Van Etten (goddess), she was the fitting soundtrack to my solo trip in the French countryside working as a housekeeper for some horrible and abusive people. Her music kept my spirits up when I was feeling the worst about myself and made me see the beauty in the place I was in. Her music helped me keep a calm demeanor which prevented me from escalating the situation to an unlivable status. I would really like to show my girlfriend the power of her music and expose the emotion I had at that time of my life.

    My husband and I love Madeleine’s music, and he has yet to check out the wonderful sound of Revolution Hall. Some free tickets would be amazing!
