Stacey Kent is a musical all-rounder who has mastered subtle understatement, an elegant jazz interpreter with millions of fans all over the world and one of the best-selling singers in jazz ever. Look forward to a unique intimate concert with a true world star of jazz.
Stacey Kent is a jazz singer in the history of the greats, with a multitude of awards and accolades, including a Grammy nomination, album sales of over 2 million, gold, double gold and platinum albums that have reached a number of No. 1 chart positions throughout her career. At first, it didn't look like a singing career for the U.S. native when she pursued a degree in comparative literature.
But Kent, who had been singing and taking piano lessons since childhood found herself in London by some twist of fate and went through the Guildhall School of Music. She quickly gained a considerable reputation in the London scene and regularly opened concert nights at the legendary Ronnie Scott's. 11 studio albums (for Blue Note, among others) later, Kent is ranked with the greatest of her guild. The multi-award winning vocalist is distinguished by her crystal clear voice, her deep understating of the lyrical side of her repertoire, and her musical as well as linguistic range. Whether it's standards from the Great American Songbook, lyrics written for her by Nobel Prize winner Kazuo Ishiguro, or words from her own pen, Stacey Kent's music touches millions of fans around the world and ensures sold-out houses and acclaimed festival intermezzi as part of her "I Know I Dream" tour.
