Stephen Holden on Madeleine Peyroux

The NYTimes on the singer who was recently at Lisner: ”

It wasn’t so long ago that the singer Madeleine Peyroux, with her kittenish voice and sultry behind-the-beat phrasing, was described somewhat dismissively as a vocal clone of Billie Holiday. That her repertory includes several songs associated with Lady Day only contributed to the impression.  

“But as her recent album, “Bare Bones” (Rounder), all of whose songs she had a hand in writing, and her performance at Town Hall on Thursday evening demonstrated, she is a much more complicated musical figure.”
