Born: May 29, 1971    Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Jeanette Lindström is the jazz singer that prompted legendary producer Quincy Jones to voice the portentous words: “An old soul in a young singer”. And also: “She really understands what jazz is all about!” The year was 1995 and Jeanette Lindström made her major breakthrough, on a broad front. The calendar tells us it’s now a different year, and today Jeanette Lindström is one of Sweden's most prized jazz singers.

Jeanette Lindström is one of Sweden’s leading jazz singers and composers. In January she won a Swedish Grammis for Best Jazz Album of the Year with her latest album “Attitude & Orbit Control”. She has that ability to set the imagination of the listener in movement - with her voice, her music as well as with her words. Her sixth solo album Attitude & Orbit Control is hard proof. A space odessey of sorts, interpersonal as well as interstellar. Micro- as well as macrocosmic forces at play. Fellow travelers include co-writing guest vocalist Robert Wyatt, a new band and new co-producer and drummer Magnus �-ström of e.s.t. as well as lyric contributor Sidsel Endresen. Jeanette Lindström wanted to move on, this time further than before. To write in a new way, to concentrate more on production and instrumentation. She wanted it to really be “Jeanette-music”, whatever that would sound like.

”Lindstrom sings in such a way as to invite the listener into her own world. Like waking up on a warm summer day, welcomed by birds singing. It's a world full of depth, dimension and beauty. -

“...a real spacewalk that takes off in the personal and lands among the stars.” - Dagens Nyheter Review 5/5

“Attitude & Orbit Control is Jeanette Lindström's best album so far, may as well say it right away” - Svenska Dagbladet (Sweden)

“Lindström is breaking new ground by taking care of everything. She’s a singer/songwriter in jazz. And that really means a difference.” - Dagens Nyheter (Sweden)

“With great ease she weaves together different directions, musicians and traditions from Northern European jazz, something which gives a broad frame of reference for an international audience.” - Musikkguiden (Norway)
