Alternately emotive, sultry and swinging vocals on jazz standards with great arrangements. Makes the old sound fresh and new!
There was a time when vocalists infused every carefully chosen lyric with meaning, every precious syllable with emotion, and every note with golden tone. It was the era of the true ‘chanteuse’.
That era is alive and well, living in the person of Kitt Lough, an inspiring new voice on the jazz scene. Melding sultry, velvety vocals with a beguiling appearance, Kitt creates a romantic experience that transports the listener to an age when glamour, rhythm and romance ruled the day. By turns playful & coquettish or plaintive & mournful, she sparkles in the spotlight with her visual and vocal artistry wherever she sings. She imbues every lyric with an emotional range that makes evident the wealth of her life’s experience.
Her debut CD “Orange Colored View” is enjoying rave reviews and generous airplay on jazz stations acrss the southeast. Stunningly produced and arranged by Dan Serafini, it showcases her vocal versatility and places her squarely among today’s best jazz vocalists.
Stay tuned for her next release currently being recorded in New Orleans, Louisina, USA
See what they’re saying so far about her live performances…
"when kitt sings it is special. One might even say uncanny. Besides singing in tune, with good rhythm and phrasing, it is as if she has complete understanding and empathy for the lyrics and, when she delivers the song,
the listener perceives this. What can I say? In my humble opinion, she is a phenomenon." Al Bernard, bassist for Nancy Wilson, Mel Torme, Bobby Darin & others
“...A delightful torch singer, able to navigate the fine line between sentimentality, allure and innocence, while also conveying a song’s multiple meanings... [with] an ideal blend of invitation, declaration and tension.”
The Nashville Scene
