Stacey Kent

New York native Stacey Kent never anticipated a career in jazz music: she was a Sarah Lawrence graduate with a degree in comparative literature. But her childhood days spent listening to the traditional beauty of Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole undoubtedly influenced her. While on holiday in Europe after graduating from college, she took up singing without much formal training and never looked back.

Kent became acquainted with several musicians at Oxford in 1991, and through them she found herself participating in a jazz course at the famed Guildhall School of Music and Drama. There she also met her future husband, tenor saxophonist Jim Tomlinson, and landed a spot in the class. Her next spot was singing with the Vile Bodies Swing Orchestra at the Ritz Hotel in London, quickly landing a role in Ian McKellen's Richard III film, playing a big-band singer. The mid-'90s were more focused on recording and in 1996, Kent inked a deal with Candid Records. A year later, the critically acclaimed Close Your Eyes was issued; Tender Trap followed in 1999. Her third LP, Let Yourself Go: Celebrating Fred Astaire, which showcased popular standards, appeared in spring 2000. The ballad-oriented Dreamsville appeared the next spring. She also recorded an album with Tomlinson titled Lyric, and appeared on Blue Note for several albums during the 2000s. In 2010 Kent released the all-French album Raconte-Moi, which went on to achieve gold status in both France and Germany. The live album, Dreamer in Concert -- recorded at the La Cigale in Paris -- appeared a year later in 2011. Two years later, Kent return with The Changing Lights; inspired by her love of Brazillian music, the album saw her working with Portuguese poet Antonio Ladeira and French lyricist Bernie Beaupère. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi

Je t'aime!
What an off-beat and romantic ballad and truly unique! Touchingly sentimental for all lovers. Ms. Ken was brilliant to record this.
Kinda reminds me of Blossom Dearie. Great voice and phrasing!
A friend introduced me to Stacey a few years ago. Immediately fell in love. Her music is so dope. Hard to believe she's not French!

Listened to Stacy at Faching in Stockholm in November - Great!
Amazingly, her songs in French seem to be more in tune with her spirit than native English. Great sense of jazz timing.
Voice of an angel. Soothes the soul, calms the mind. She's one of a kind!
La chanteuse est incroyable.. . a t first I thought that I was listening to a new song by 'Paris Combo'..as I travel to France often...and I enjoy the variety of contemporary artists.. C'est magnifique.. t e l est mon avis (translation . . I t ' s amazing.such is my opinion!)

Looking forward to seeing Stacey in San Francisco on December 11, at Bay Area Cabaret! Anxiously!

Soothing enrapturing voice ... cocooning against the strife of the world! A rare quality ... Norah Jones with better range, Diana Krall with more rounded edges and richer. In another genre, check out young Jackie Evancho, too.

Wonderfully soothing voice. What a delight to listen to.
greatlegs001
So smooooooth. Love her
How did America lose Stacey to Europe? I spent a fortune to import "Raconte-moi " but even an all-French album by Stacey is a treasure beyond mere price.
Mmmmmmmmmmmm m m
Only Stacey can sing "Ice Hotel". Are we all in agreement?
il y a beaucopu pour aimer ainsi, j'aime bien sa musique
You can always pick that voice out. Stacey is one of a kind. Love the French piece.
GREAT PIPES...SING ME TO SLEEP
hmmmm very yummy

Wow! Love love love.
I like this version of a Serge Gainsberg song!

I first discovered Stacey Kent here on Pandora. She reminds me of a young Joanie Sommers. I do wish her the greatest success.

Intruiging.
Her voice is as smooth as a single drop of Vermouth in a perfect Martini

We saw Stacey Kent live at Birdland in NYC - what a beautiful voice and stage demeanor. I find that she stays mostly in her comfort space (which is beautiful in any case) and would love to see try styles other than the French / English and Portuguese jazzy/bossa nova that defines her; A bit of soul.
