Lynn Veronneau

Returning to the scene in 2010, singer and Quebec native Lynn Véronneau has been tearing through mid-Atlantic listening venues like a force of nature. She and her new band of world-wise musicians have shared their sparkling jazz-pop sound at club and festival dates in the Mid- Atlantic region and internationally. Their 2011 debut CD, Joie de Vivre, climbed to #9 in the Jazzweek world music chart and went top 10 in many regional jazz charts. It's international success led to the band touring the UK and Canada in 2011 where they performed live on BBC radio and Radio Canada. This year the band won 6 Wammie nominations from the Washington Area Music Association. A vocalist trained in the bel canto tradition, with influences ranging from {{m: Ella Fitzgerald = 6721}} to {{m: Eva Cassidy = 12045}} to Annie Lenox, Véronneau will soon be bringing her playful yet sophisticated sensibility and her smooth, powerful voice to audiences around the US, Canada, and UK, as the band tours in support of their debut recording, Joie de Vivre (Joy of Living) . As a child in suburban Montreal (Sherbrooke), Véronneau was influenced early by the world of Francophone music from her parents’ generation, including crooners Joe Dassin and Serge Lama, chansonier Jacques Brel, and diva Dalida
