Lauren Henderson

"Somewhere between a comforting whisper and a cogent declaration" -- The New York Times
 "A vibrant new star singer" -- Downbeat Magazine
 "Exceedingly warm and immensely promising vocalist" -- Jazz Times

A New Yorker with deep roots in Panama and the Caribbean, Henderson enchants her audience with a flair for Latin music and R&B. The tenderness in her voice is almost a whisper, with an ever present strong undercurrent of an utterly confident vocalist who knows exactly who she is. The success of her most recent album, Alma Oscura, serves as proof: Lauren Henderson has become a permanent fixture in the international jazz and music scene. Now Lauren Henderson is coming to Europe, backed by the Walter Fischbacher Trio - a winning combination of entrancing vocals and virtuoso piano playing.


 Als New Yorkerin, mit tiefen Wurzeln in Panama und der Karibik, verzaubert Henderson ihr Publikum mit ihrem Flair fuer Latin Music und R&B. Die Zartheit ihrer Stimme grenzt an ein Fluestern, durchzogen mit der Kraft einer selbstbewussten Saengerin, die ganz genau weiss, wer sie ist. Der Erfolg ihres juengsten Albums, Alma Oscura, ist der Beweis: Lauren Henderson ist aus der internationalen Jazz und Musikszene nicht mehr wegzudenken. Jetzt kommt Lauren Henderson mit dem Walter Fischbacher Trio nach Europa - eine gelungene Kombination aus bezauberndem Gesang und virtuosem Klavierspiel.
