Stacey Kent

A sublime interpreter of the Great American Songbook as well as Chanson, Bossa Nova and original songs, Stacey Kent’s repertoire extends well beyond her jazz roots. A french-speaking Grandfather introduced the young Kent to wonders of poetry which led her to a degree in comparative literature at Sarah Lawrence College in New York. A chance meeting in Oxford with Jim Tomlinson took her down a musical path and to the Guildhall School of Music where her love of poetry continued to drive her artistic vision. Kent’s collaborators include the Nobel Laureate, Kazuo Ishiguro, who has written lyrics for her since 2006. Stacey is a truly international artist who has graced the stages of over 50 countries across 6 continents. She serves as an expert tour guide through songs of love, moments of nostalgic reflection, and expressions of joy. Her voice can act as a ray of sunshine or a consoling hand, but above all, it serves as a mirror for the heart. – All About Jazz
