Stacey Kent

"Her voice is sometimes a whisper, sometimes a confiding murmur, sometimes an exhilarated exclamation; but whatever the idiom or the mood, individual listeners frequently feel that Stacey’s music was intended for their ears only." -- Bang & Olufsen Magazine

Stacey Kent is a jazz singer in the mold of the greats, with a legion of fans worldwide, a host of honors and awards including a Grammy nomination, album sales of 2 million, Gold, Double-Gold and Platinum-selling albums that have reached a series of No. 1 chart positions during the span of her career.  Raised and schooled on the east coast of the USA, this comparative literature graduate with a musical bent, travelled to Europe to further her studies. Through a series of twists of fate, she found herself in London where she enrolled in a graduate music program at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and where she met her future husband and musical collaborator,  Jim Tomlinson. Throughout her career, Stacey’s band has featured Jim Tomlinson (sax/flute) whose songwriting partnership with Nobel-prize winning author, Kazuo Ishiguro, has formed an essential plank in her repertoire.

 

With a catalogue of 12 studio albums including the Platinum-selling, GRAMMY-nominated 'Breakfast On The Morning Tram' (EMI/BLUE NOTE 2007) and an impressive list of collaborations, Stacey has graced the stages of more than 50 countries over the course of her career.  Kent's latest release in her 20-year-long career is ‘I Know I Dream: The Orchestral Sessions’ (Sony/ 2017), which was rated a coveted five stars in DownBeat magazine and awarded "Album of the Year" in the vocal category at this year's Jazz Japan Awards.
