Jazz singer Madeleine Peyroux has lined up a series of new concert dates over the next few months, including a string of dates on the West coast, followed by two weeks in Brazil, and then a few weeks of shows in the Midwest and the Northeast.
Peyroux has gained a reputation for avoiding the spotlight: After her first album was released in 1996, she dropped out of sight for years, doing street performances in Paris and rarely performing under her own name in clubs. She raised eyebrows in 2005 when she was reported missing after failing to appear at promotional events in the UK, and a private detective was hired to find her -- only to discover she was in New York with her manager, which embarrassed her record company.
At the BBC Jazz Awards in July, Peyroux was named the Best International Jazz Artist. She also recently made an appearance on Live From Abbey Road, on the Sundance Channel.
Her latest album is Half the Perfect World.
