Jeanne Newhall

Jeanne Newhall is a true contemporary artist. Not confined by genres, she’s a vocalist, composer, producer and pianist who celebrates a passion for jazz and an R&B heart. Classically trained, she grew up with Mozart, Bartok and Bach as well as rock ‘n’ roll, folk and pop. She confesses to a “fetish” for guitars, describes the piano as a percussive instrument and claims D-flat as her favorite note. Many streams run through Jeanne Newhall’s music. Live or on disc, her warm, richly nuanced vocals, the free flow of her sophisticated playing and arrangements, and her pure heart and soul draw the listener into a very special world. WILD BLUE is Jeanne Newhall’s debut on Blix Street Records. Much anticipated, the album is not only a showcase for her versatility as an artist, it signals new directions in her music. “For me”whether I’m singing or playing or composing”music is about life. It’s about living up to my full potential as an artist. It’s about evolution. I don’t know whether I’ve taken a hard right or hard left on WILD BLUE,” she laughs, “but I’ve found a new freedom with this album.”
