Kelley Suttenfield
Among The Stars is the second release for acoustic jazz vocalist Kelley Suttenfield. Known for her “passionate delivery that can penetrate hearts" (JazzReview), once again she embarks on a musical exploration—this time traversing through jazz and singer-songwriter territories, and landing squarely in the space between. This stripped-down and exceptionally intimate duo recording is a stark contrast to her multi-layered and well received debut CD Where Is Love? Complemented by the “beautiful and soulful" timbre of guitarist Tony Romano (Just Jazz Guitar) on nylon-string guitar, each of these ten tracks is an unadorned yet delicate interplay, culminating in a moving and poignant offering to the listener. Prior comparisons to the plaintive vocal styles of Madeleine Peyroux (Jazz Weekly) and Susannah McCorkle (Jazz Society of Oregon) ring true in this bittersweet collection of songs steeped in longing and unfulfilled desire. As a sophomore release, Among The Stars delivers bold statements from both Suttenfield and Romano.

“His tone is beautiful and soulful, and his remarkable technique is a servant to his rich musical imagination and broad harmonic palette." —Just Jazz Guitar

“Here's a singer with a lot of great ideas, and the ability to deliver them." —Jazz Weekly

“Suttenfield encourages the listener to delve into an imaginary sanctuary filled with tender arias and angelic hues." —JazzTimes

“Romano lays a harmonic and rhythmic bed that leaves nothing lacking." —Jazz Improv

Kelley Suttenfield is an acoustic jazz vocalist known for creating an evocative mood that clearly resonates with her listeners. Kelley performs regularly in New York City, and has toured in the Eastern US, Denmark, France, and the United Kingdom. She is a former finalist in the NYC Jazzmobile Jazz Vocalist competition and released her debut CD entitled Where Is Love?" on Rhombus Records in 2009.

Tony is adjunct faculty at Five Towns College, and a Teaching Artist for the Kupferberg Center at Queens College.
