Tierney Sutton

In a world of overnight sensations, jazz vocalist Tierney Sutton’s success has come from the road less traveled.

A decision in the mid ’90s to move to Southern California from her New England home resulted in a decade-long collaboration with her current band mates. A Wisconsin- born choir girl, unexposed to jazz until college, Tierney eventually found the best of the best--collaborators with their own impressive jazz pedigrees, from Natalie Cole to Diana Krall, from Ray Charles to Randy Brecker--pianist Christian Jacob, bassists Trey Henry and Kevin Axt, and drummer Ray Brinker.

Ten years and six critically acclaimed CDs later, Tierney and her band demonstrate what collective consultation and dedicated teamwork can achieve. Reviewers repeatedly say that audiences experience a rare and powerful harmony, achieved by humble performers at the top of their game. The road less traveled in an impatient world.
