Madeleine Peyroux will perform at Gesa Power House Theatre on Tuesday, March 29 at 7:00 p.m.
Madeleine Peyroux is a jazz singer, songwriter, and guitarist, noted for her vocal style, which has often been compared to that of Billie Holiday.
American-born and of French descent, she got her start as a teenager performing with street musicians in Paris, where she was living with her mother at the time. In her early twenties, she was discovered by an American producer and released her first album Dreamland in 1996.
Peyroux has opened for Sarah McLachlan, collaborated with k.d. lang, and was awarded Best International Jazz Artist at the 2007 BBC Jazz Awards. Her songs have appeared in national television ad for Dockers and Old Navy, during the closing credits of an episode of HBO’s Deadwood, and on the soundtracks to films, such as Last Holiday and Diplomacy.
