Majestic Theatre presents
Halie Loren Concert
May 2, 2014 7:30pm
International Recording Artist
Award-winning Jazz Singer & Songwriter
With special guest, Corvallis trumpet maestro Rob Birdwell!
Described as “pure magic” by All About Jazz and “the next big thing among jazz vocalists” by Jazz Times. Award-winning vocalist Loren has spent the last five years establishing herself as one of the finest jazz singers working today.
The first thing audiences notice about Halie Loren is her earthy and ethereal voice. She’s beautiful, lovely, personable, and she brings a fresh perspective to the musical paths she journeys. Her genre-defying original compositions were what first drew the attention of the wider musical world, receiving awards from the Austin Songwriters‘ Contest, the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, and Billboard World Song Contest. Her most recent album,Heart First, won Jazz Critique Magazine’s top “golden” prize for a vocal album at the 2011 Jazz Audio Disc Awards, and the album subsequently reached #1 on the iTunes Canada and Japan jazz albums chart, #2 in Jazz CDs at Amazon Canada, within the top 5 in iTunes Jazz in the US.
Recent highlights include sold-out tours in Japan, Canada, and performances at Seattle’s Jazz Alley and San Francisco’s Yoshi’s. She released her newest album Simply Love in the US in September, 2013, which AllAboutJazz called “warm and seductive.”
