Jeanie Bryson

Sultry, soulful, hypnotic, rare---there is no shortage of adjectives to describe Jeanie Bryson, whose extraordinary singing voice is at once reminiscent of Billie Holiday and Peggy Lee, and uniquely modern, original and inviting.

It is her unerring sense of swing that most defines Jeanie's style. She is best known for her warm, velvety sound and impeccable phrasing - “She has created a performance language rare in its ability to portray desire and humor”, writes Peter Watrous in the New York Times. When he says “the effect is intimacy”, he's right on. It feels like being cuddled in front of a smoldering fire when Jeanie Bryson sings.
