Sinne Eeg at Kuumbwa Jazz

September 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$25 - $30

Considered the preeminent jazz vocalist in Scandinavia, Sinne Eeg has become known for her spellbinding concerts. Having won Best Vocal Jazz Album of the Year four times at the Danish Music Awards, the rest of the world is now starting to hear her pristine vocals. Influenced by, and calling to mind, legends such as Nancy Wilson, Betty Carter and Sarah Vaughn, her understated tone is countered with boldly expressive phrasing.  Having toured across Europe, China, Japan and stateside, Eeg has captivated audiences with her nuanced approach to classic jazz, into which she folds Scandinavian melancholy and dimension.

Sinne was raised in the Danish countryside in a very musical family. Her father, a physician, also plays bass, while her mother is a singer and clarinetist. Her brother plays the sax, and her uncle is a multi-instrumentalist. There was always jazz and jazz musicians in her house, so of course it was only natural that she began playing music at the age of four. However, she didn’t become serious about music until she was 16, when she decided to pursue it as a career. With the intention of studying at the highly competitive Danish Music Conservatory, Sinne first studied at a music preparatory school just to be good enough to audition for the Academy. She attended the Academy for six years studying jazz vocals. Coursework at the Academy is very rigorous and gave her the deep understanding of music and superb harmonic and rhythmic techniques that shape her performances today. After school, she began performing in small cafes and casuals, building her reputation and fan base. The world started taking serious notice of her in 2007 with the release of her second album, Waiting for Dawn, and her acclaim has been growing ever since. Her latest album is Eeg – Fonnesbæk, released in 2015.

Half-price student tickets will be available at the door, with valid student ID, at this concert date.
