NICOLE HENRY DEBUTS AT FEINSTEIN’S AT LOEWS REGENCY
SUNDAY, MARCH 6
Soulful songstress to showcase selections from her upcoming fourth CD release
On Sunday, March 6 at 8:30 pm, vocalist Nicole Henry will perform at renowned Feinstein’s at Loews Regency in New York City, showcasing songs from the Great American Songbook, along with a preview of selections from her upcoming ArtistShare CD release Embraceable. This marks Nicole’s debut at Michael Feinstein’s NYC club, and she recently shared the stage with Feinstein at the Jazz Roots “American Songbook” concert at the Dallas AT&T Performing Arts Center.
Sophisticated, soulful and fun, Nicole Henry has won praise from both critics and fans worldwide for her powerful ability to move and inspire audiences with her beautiful voice and stunning presence.
Nicole’s 2008 CD release, The Very Thought of You reached #7 on the U.S. Billboard Jazz Chart, and throughout 2009 and 2010, Nicole’s NYC monthly performances in front of sold-out audiences at Chelsea’s Metropolitan Room led to rave reviews and the honor of the “2010 BISTRO Award for Outstanding Jazz Vocalist.“
“She phrases songs with a freewheeling sense of play that never loses sight of the subject at hand. At the same time she holds back the force of her tart-timbered voice until the right dramatic moment to unleash its considerable power.” – Stephen Holden, New York Times
“Henry aims right for the emotional center…one comes away believing that Henry is a jazz vocalist poised on the cusp of bigger things.” – Philip Van Vleck, Billboard
“(Henry) can sell a power ballad as well as Whitney, Diana and Patti.” – Jazz Times
“Nicole Henry holds an audience in the palm of her hand. Her energy and passion make her one of the most impressive live performers to personalize the great American Songbook. Stunning!” – The Japan Times
Nicole’s June 2011 ArtistShare CD release Embraceable marks a significant step in the vocalist’s career, as she embraces soulful, contemporary original material while continuing to interpret the best of American popular song. Featuring the likes of saxophonist Kirk Whalum and pianist Gerald Clayton, plus 4-time Grammy-winning arranger Gil Goldstein, and helmed by Grammy-nominated producer Matt Pierson, the project is sure bring Henry’s sophisticated, passionate and soulful voice to a much wider audience.
