About the Event

Don't be fooled by her slight frame, tender years and polished elegance. Instead, look into her eyes, watch the sway of her body and listen to her words. For Madeleine Rose Witney is no conventional torch singer but a woman with a voice like velvet who takes every experience from her helter skelter life, wraps it in song and leads her audience on a journey into poetry, emotion and truth.

.

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.
