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.”
Kelley performs extensively in New York City and along the East Coast. She has headlined at notable venues such as The Iridium and Jazz at Kitano in New York City and appeared at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London. She has performed at numerous venues throughout Europe and was once a featured guest with the Great Danes Big Band as part of the Copenhagen Jazz Festival. Kelley was also a former finalist in the annual NYC Jazzmobile Vocal Jazz Competition.
Future plans include tours on the West Coast and Europe and a return to the studio for another recording with her band. CD purchase details, schedule updates and other information can be found at: www.kelleysuttenfield.com.
