THE JAZZ IN M.E.E. Welcomes our new client Jacqui Sutton to the M.E.E. Family....
Jacqui Sutton, is the Jazz/Bluegrass Songstress who currently has the airwaves buzzing with her new album, “Notes from the Frontier.” Her album is now #1 on the Top Jazz Adds CMJ issue #1269, #15 on the CMJ Jazz Chart issue #1274 and #35 on the CMJ Jazz Chart issue #1278.
She has a unique sound, that can best be described as a perfect blend of Billie Holiday and Dolly Parton. An unlikely pair, that just so happen to be her two vocal heroes.
Turning 50 and starting a garage band is not the usual vocalist’s narrative. But that’s what happened to Jacqui, proving that you can create a dream career at any age.
- In less than 2 years, she’s been hugely successful, with a #1 on the Top Jazz Adds CMJ.
- Her band, The Frontier Jazz Orchestra is a stylistic mash-up of jazz, bluegrass and orchestral/chamber music that come together in my debut CD Billie & Dolly—an homage to her two vocal heroes, Billie Holiday and Dolly Parton.
- She was recently reviewed by the Jazz Times, alongside Jazz icons Tony Bennett and Barbara Cook. Christopher Louden wrote,”Sutton opens with a “Summertime” that serves as splendid introduction to the steel of her pipes and the majesty of a voice that marries the earthiness of Cassandra Wilson to the warmth of Dianne Reeves.
Jacqui resides in Houston ,where Texas music lovers love the Jazz/Bluegrass sound and we would like to share her, the unique sound and her great insight on her extraordinary journey with you.
