“Ms Sutton is a pure jazz spirit who respects a song. Even when going out on an improvisatory limb, she never lets its essence slip away.”
— The New York Times
Eight-time Grammy-nominated jazz vocalist Tierney Sutton has received a Best Jazz Vocal Album Grammy nod for every project she has released in the last decade. Known for her impeccable voice and imaginative treatments of The Great American Songbook, Sutton is heralded for her abilities as both a jazz storyteller and her ability to use her voice as an instrument.
The Tierney Sutton Band’s 12 recordings have addressed themes such as materialism Desire 2009, the pursuit of happiness On The Other Side 2007, as well as paying tribute to the music of Bill Evans Blue In Green 2002, and pop icon Sting The Sting Variations 2016. The band just released a brand new recording called, ScreenPlay which celebrates songs from movies from the 1940s to the present, including the band’s own original score to Clint Eastwood’s Sully.
The Tierney Sutton Band, comprising Tierney Sutton, Christian Jacob, Kevin Axt and Ray Brinker, has been together for over 25 years and are 8-time Grammy Nominees as both recording artists and arrangers.
