Jazz Voice - Festival opening gala
11 Nov 2016
LONDON Live At Zédel
20 Sherwood Street
Texan jazz singer Hailey Tuck premières an expanded version of her band, performing a set inspired by her move to Paris aged 18.
Touted by US fashion magazine Marie Claire as 'the Millenial's Louise Brooks', native Austinite Hailey is a jazz singer from the most unlikely of backgrounds. She was raised on a diet of black and white movies, 1930's jazz and vintage dresses - before being sent to Baptist Military Boarding school and eventually running off to Paris. Dressed straight out of a F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, with a uniquely captivating voice that sits somewhere between Billie Holiday, Regina Spektor and Ella Fitzgerald, Hailey has been enchanting bigger and bigger audiences at festivals across Europe, where she now spends most of her time.
