Critically acclaimed, Grammy-nominated singer, Stacey Kent, sings from the soul, telling her stories with faultless phrasing and a lucid, enchanting voice. Stacey returns to Birdland at the launch of her new album, I KNOW I DREAM: The Orchestral Sessions (Sony).
“I Know I Dream” is Stacey’s first orchestral album and her most ambitious to date. The rich musical tapestry contrasts with her previous intimate collaboration with Brazilian music master, Robert Menescal, on “Tenderly” (2015 SONY) and the exuberant ”Marcos Valle & Stacey Kent Live” (2013 SONY). Stacey's other recent albums include the Brazilian-flavored, “The Changing Lights,” (Warner), “Dreamer In Concert,” the Grammy nominated, Platinum-selling, “Breakfast on the Morning Tram,” (2007) and all-French, “Raconte-moi,” (2009).
Throughout her career, Stacey’s band has partnered with Jim Tomlinson (sax) whose songwriting partnership with Nobel Prize-winning novelist Kazuo Ishiguro has come to form an essential plank in her distinctive repertoire.
