Madeleine Peyroux







Elegant and escapist, American singer Madeleine Peyroux moved to Paris in her teens and busked on the streets, honing a confident “bohemian storyteller” approach to Billie Holiday and Edith Piaf. 22 years since her debut Dreamland, Peyroux continues pushing jazz boundaries. In Anthem (2018), she casts a sober, poetic, and philosophical eye on the current state of the world, dazzling listeners with interpretations of Leonard Cohen’s “Anthem” and poet Paul Eluard’s “Liberté.”
