Tour name: Madeleine Peyroux
‘The only thing that matters is the song’ says singer-songwriter Madeleine Peyroux. That conviction, along with a one-of-a-kind voice, has carried her from busking on the streets of Paris all the way to mainstream recognition. Through her intensely distinctive renditions of old classics and modern tunes by the likes of Leonard Cohen and The Beatles, Peyroux has proved to be an uncannily insightful interpreter with her consistently impeccable choice of material.
Peyroux’s new album, The Blue Room (out now on Decca), sees the genre-blending singer reworking some landmark musical gems, in a collaboration with long-time Peyroux producer Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell, Walter Becker, Tracy Chapman, Herbie Hancock). Following her string of sold out shows at Ronnie Scott’s in London and at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival, she returns to Liverpool Philharmonic.
‘A balance of vulnerable humanity and meticulous skill’
Price: £24, £30
