Peyroux, one of the most prestigious singers of her generation, spreads magic and healing from the stage.

Madeleine Peyroux began her singing career in the 1980s on the streets of Paris, where she moved with her mother. She has a very special place on the contemporary jazz scene as a vocalist who followed in the footsteps of extraordinary voices such as Billie Holiday, Edith Piaf, and Ella Fitzgerald.

Madeleine Peyroux introduced herself with her misty and magical voice to large audiences for the first time in 1996, with her album Dreamland she recorded alongside top-tier jazz musicians. But her breakthrough came 8 years later, when she unexpectantly sang Careless Love with a subtlety that even the most intense jazz fan could not remain indifferent to. Opening her soul to the audiences exploring deep into the songs of artists such Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, or Hank Williams, Peyroux skillfully travels between genres. With a prestigious career of twenty-three years and eight albums full of emotion and mystery, Peyroux’s candor reflects in her songs and reaches a genuine glamour.

“Live performances are where I feel the magic as if the music had become three dimensional, something you can feel and smell. Being able to do that every day is just wonderful.”

Madeleine Peyroux, 2019
