Madeleine Peyroux: Finding Your Own Voice

Oct 8, 2015

Madeleine Peyroux’s sultry voice and winsome blend of folk, pop and jazz songs have taken her to concert halls, jazz clubs and festivals all over the world.

Her singing wins widespread praise; she's been compared to Bessie Smith, Edith Piaf, Patsy Cline and Billie Holliday. In between her high-profile performances and recordings, Peyroux often busks outdoors, returning to her musical beginnings as a street performer in Paris.
