About Me

Kelley Suttenfield is an acoustic jazz vocalist whose lush resonance and graceful approach have captivated fans and critics alike. In the words of writer Carol Banks Weber (AXS.com), she “breathes her own loving, sensitive and reverent persona into every lyric.”

Kelley’s debut CD “Where Is Love?” (Rhombus Records 2009) was released to critical acclaim and established Kelley as what George W. Harris of JazzWeekly.com described as “a singer with a lot of great ideas and the ability to deliver them.” The 12-track recording, an eclectic collection of jazz standards and pop songs, showcases Kelley’s sublime vocal finesse, as well as her innate sensitivity to the lyric. Her second CD “Among The Stars” (Self Produced), a quiet collection of standards and singer-songwriter classics, was released in September 2014 and is already generating widespread attention. Bruce Crowther of JazzMostly.com writes: “A warm, sensual and distinctive vocal sound marks Kelley Suttenfield as someone rather special in the somewhat overcrowded arena in which today’s jazz singers must perform.”

She has just released a third album “When We Were Young: Kelley Suttenfield Sings Neil Young” which Jazz Music Archives calls the “number one pick for sleeper, surprise masterpiece of the year.” Plans are underway for tours in US and UK, EPK and additional information can be found at: www.kelleysuttenfield.com.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
