Quotes & Highlights

“[2009’s] Bare Bones [is] a work of high class, deep feeling and, let’s not forget, magical singing.” —The Guardian (London)

Description

French-American jazz songstress Madeleine Peyroux makes her Luckman debut with her full arsenal of delicately sultry compositions and renditions. With hits such as “Careless Love” and “Don’t Wait Too Long,” Madeleine Peyroux has earned her spot amongst jazz/blues divas such as Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald – artists to whom she is often compared. With a warm, perfect blend of melancholy and carefree ingrained in her music, Ms. Peyroux’s voice is as chillingly vivid as it is a powerhouse of emotion.
