Titas presents Madeleine Peyroux

Madeleine Peyroux

May 24, 2012


Bluesy and soulful, Madeleine Peyroux has one of the most unique voices in jazz today.Madeleine’s road to fame is as romantic as her sound. Having honed her vocal and guitar skills on the famously unique, acoustic streets of Europe, Peyroux’s style was inspired by jazz legends such as Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith and Louis Armstrong.

She is perhaps best known to her fans for intimately arranged covers of early American blues and jazz music. Some of her most notable albums include 2005’s Careless Love and 2009’s Bare Bones.

Peyroux has collaborated with such heavy hitters as Joe Henry, Steely Dan’s Walter Becker and the Rolling Stones’ Bill Wyman, and went on tour last year with Diana Krall and Melody Gardot in Australia. Her new album will be released this year. Unique, bluesy and soulful, this concert will be presented in the intimate Wyly Theater and will be a special highlight in the TITAS music series.
