Maybe I got a lot to learn Time can slip away Sometimes you got to lose it all Before you find your way…
— “Don’t Wait Too Long”
Every great musical project starts with a feeling that it’s time.
So it was, in 2004, for Madeleine Peyroux: “when I got around to making Careless Love it had been a good eight years since my first album.” Eight years—forever in the music world. Not long After Dreamland dropped in ’96, she had disappeared from the touring scene as well. Where had she been? What had she been doing, and why?
I was traveling a lot across America, rediscovering the country and re-identifying as an American. I was born here in the States but moved with my mother to live in Paris when I was young. I met family I never met before. I caught up on what was happening with the music here. It was all a culture shock for me. When I came back to New York to make that first album I was like a deer in the headlights. It was my first time in a studio, my first time back in America. Then 9/11 happened. Then George W. got re-elected. It was like the world was going crazy. After Dreamland I had signed with Sony and I was trying to make my second record. I was broke and I didn’t know what I was going to do next.
Self-reflection and spiritual sensitivity are assets to any musician in the process of starting a career, of establishing one’s musical identity and direction. They don’t, however, necessarily lock into the typical velocity of career-building. There were other things Peyroux had to handle. She underwent surgery on her vocal cords. She healed and worked with a vocal coach. As the ‘90s gave way to the first years of a new century, she continued to question the how and, significantly, the why of what she was doing. (Her choice of the Dylan Thomas quote below, from his 1946 poem “In my Craft and Sullen Art,” helps explain her creative motivation.)
“I put a lot of thought into what my career means,” Peyroux says, “what making a record and the follow-up tour represents—the kind of music I wanted to do and the amount of work that is involved.”
By 2004, Peyroux had found the answers to her questions. She signed to Rounder Records. Her distinctively updated blend of swing-era jazz, country blues, gospel, and other acoustic forms made sense on a label with a reputation for standing by singular artists dealing in, or drawing inspiration from roots Americana. It was a good fit from the start, and would lead to a run of three career-defining albums. It also led Peyroux to work with Larry Klein, a bassist whose experience covered a wide stylistic range, from rock and R&B to jazz. He had played with Bob Dylan and Herbie Hancock. By the 2000s, he had a reputation as producer of genre-straddling vocalists like Joni Mitchell, Holly Cole, and Shawn Colvin.
She’s a gem of an artist!
Gosh – what a treat this will be! Hopefully for me!
We got married on Labor Day and this would awesome because its a love tour. We need to celebrate our new love. Thanks.

Love her voice!
Just gave her a listen, she sounds great and I’ve heard Revolution Hall is a nice place to see a show.
I have listened to her for the past several years and have fond memories of her music, would love to share the experience of seeing her with my boyfriend who is starting a masters program to be a French teacher this month
I’d love to take my mom to this concert for her birthday– thanks!!
Seeing her would be so very healing for me at this time!
Nothing like jazz to help one to get back into going out.
i mean, why WOULDN”T i want to attend?? she’s unique, talented, beautiful & her songs cause weakness in my knees!!
Seems like an appropriate date after my new engagement😊
Jazz is my favorite of course.
Careless love.. forever! Sounds like alot of drama, meaningless one nighters and STDs, LoL
Madeleine Peyroux has had to struggle and has made a
great name for herself and has earned her way to where
she is today and it would be great to be in the audience
listening to what she has accomplished.
Dance me to the end of love! A pair of tix to Madeleine’s show (at my favorite venue) would be a wonderful way to escape the present and be transported to the golden age of jazz that I adore so much.
She would be amazing to see live!
Her voice is so soothing. I’d love to see her.
My partner and I have been saving up money to go see Madeleine Peyroux!! We’d be grateful for tickets!!
would be a great birthday present to me.
She would be great to see live
Madeline Peyroux is so great! Would love to see her live.
She is a songwriter. Love folks that do originals.
The Careless Love album was in heavy rotation for me in 2005-2007 when I lived in China, it holds beautiful memories to me and I would love to share Madeleine’s music with my now husband. This is sure to be a marvelous show!
She’s wicked talented and it wails be awesome to see her live show. Our 18th anniversary is this week and it would be a perfect date!
She helped heal me from the end of a 10 year marriage. Please help me go see her!
love her music <3
I would love to take my boyfriend to see his favorite artists as he is unwell, is a musician, and wants little more than to see a live music performance.
i cant wait to just kick my boots off and do a lil butt shaking
