The Grammy-nominated singer brings her new project Thirsty Ghost to the 17th American Spring festival.
Picked out by the LA Times as an artist who ‘may well turn out to be the next important jazz singer,’ Gazarek has enjoyed rare success since her emergence at the age of 20, releasing five critically-acclaimed albums and building a devoted fanbase around the world. Long known for her lightness of touch and easygoing good-humour, Gazarek reveals another side to her personality on Thirsty Ghost, an emotionally-mature and complex work that provides proof of an artist in evolution, and one not willing simply to rest on her laurels.
