SUE MCCREETH

THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF

Dave Gelly in The Observer on ‘No Evil’                 “Intimate and nicely judged performances, bringing out the best in McCreeth’s voice”

****

WELCOME

Jazz and soulful singer Sue McCreeth has been universally acclaimed in the UK national and music press for her recordings, her beautiful warmth of vocal sound, her evocative voice in elegant classics, and inventive interpretations of modern jazz song.

In 2014 she has returned to her roots and is now performing a set made up exclusively of standards.  Where possible, she will be accompanied by guitar and double bass. Especially featured in live performance will be the standards from her critically acclaimed 2014 release ‘No Evil’ (see below).  

This wild child of jazz, who hit the headlines with a blend of fusion originals in 2001, has grown up and the mainstream set she is doing currently has garnered even higher praise from bookers, musicians and the top reviewers of jazz.  Her album received a very rare four star review in the Observer in May.  Jazz UK said, “A fine collection by any standard(s)” and WayneShorter featured the release of No Evil on his website.

This will be a set which can be one moment gentle and intimate, or the next moment swinging like mad.  In live performance Sue has been widely described as exuding a genuine warmth of personality, with a warm smouldering vocal tone, mixing a hip and sultry presence with a stunning technique over several octaves.

The Observer

May 2014

“It's not singer plus accompaniment so much as four musicians working together ... a dozen intimate performances that bring out the best in McCreeth's voice, especially her whispery low register…”


Jazz UK, April 2014

“Sue shows herself to be a skilful and faithful interpreter of the repertoire. A fine album by any standards.”


Jazzwise, April 2014

“Another high quality recording from this ultra-flexible, well-regarded vocalist singing from the Great American and modern jazz songbook.”

A voice simultaneously almost ethereal and sensuous and torchy…
