On Saturday July 13, the mesmerizing voice of Madeleine Peyroux will fill the Great Lawn of the Stavros Niarchos Park, setting the stage for a dreamy and poetic evening under the stars.
Peyroux’s extraordinary journey is one of music industry’s most compelling. Eight albums and 22 years since her debut Dreamland, the artist continues to challenge the confines of jazz, venturing into the fertile fields of contemporary music with unfading curiosity.
At her SNFCC concert the singer-songwriter will walk the audience through her latest album Anthem, her “biggest project to date”, whilst taking us back to favorite songs and tunes.
In Anthem, Peyroux has collaborated with writers/musicians Patrick Warren (who’s worked with Bonnie Raitt, JD Souther, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Lana Del Rey, The Red Hot Chili Peppers), Brian MacLeod (who’s worked with Sara Bareilles, Leonard Cohen, Tina Turner, Ziggy Marley) and David Baerwald (who’s worked with Joni Mitchell, David and David, Sheryl Crow), casting a sober, poetic, and at times philosophical eye on the current state of the world and weaving the colorful stories of people confronting life's challenges in a multitude of ways.
