Thursday, February 16, 7:30 pm at Piedmont Center for the Arts —
Acclaimed vocalist Clairdee and emerging artist Noa Levy — two women from different generations and cultural backgrounds — explore the meaning of love through songs from the Great American Songbook.
Clairdee’s soulfully alluring style and rich timbre reveal roots in the gospel church. She has an intimate, vulnerable and gentle way with a ballad, yet she can swing or shout at will. With her lustrous voice, heartfelt delivery, and scene-stealing charisma, she has honed a repertoire of standards set to state of the art arrangements that are equally smart and entertaining.
With three highly praised albums to her credit, Clairdee’s newest recording, “A Love Letter to Lena Horne,” is currently in production in support of her 2017-18 concerts celebrating Ms. Horne’s centenary.
Clairdee’s rhythm section will be Ken French, piano, Ron Belcher, bass, and Jim Zimmerman, drums.
