About the Event

Born and raised in London, Madeleine found her voice as a young woman thanks to the music of jazz legends from the 1930s to the 1950s. Sarah Vaughan, Carmen McRae, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Anita O'Day and Julie London were the women who inspired her with their musicality, interpretation and feeling. What makes Madeleine such a unique talent is her skill at taking the techniques of those songstresses of yesteryear and bringing them into the 21st century.

.

Her live performances see her move seamlessly from traditional standards to her own compositions, which draw a line from the swing of the jazz era with beatnik improv to contemporary sounds. Her themes are modern, relevant, sometimes outré, but always designed to engage and provoke. Bringing it all together
