CHARMING SONGBIRD COMES INTO SONGWRITING OWN ON NEW SET DUE NEXT MARCH
Smoky voiced singer Madeleine Peyroux's earthy new album Bare Bones will be released March 10, 2009 on Rounder Records. Peyroux had a hand in writing all the songs on Bare Bones, including collaborations with album producer Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell), Walter Becker (Steely Dan), Julian Coryell, Joe Henry, David Batteau and Sean Wayland. One song, I Must Be Saved," was written entirely by Peyroux.
I'm really happy that I got to write," says Peyroux. It feels like a new segment, and it's great work. I'm surrounded by beautiful sounds, really honest musicians, really honest playing."
Bare Bones was recorded in Los Angeles at Henson Studios this fall.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
