艺人资料
Stacey Kent成为国际巨星的故事简直就像好莱坞的电影。
一位满口美国腔的学生为了获得比较文学硕士学位,来到欧洲学习法语,意大利语和德语。 她的生活发生了意想不到的变化,成为了世界一流的爵士歌手。
刚刚签约爵士老牌Blue Note的Stacey已经出了7张热卖专辑,其中2007年的《电车上的早餐》(Breakfast on the Morning Tram)和2003年的《邻家男孩》(The Boy Next Door)都成为金唱片(销量达到50万)。她赢得了一系列奖项,包括2001年全英爵士奖,2002年BBC爵士乐“最佳声线”奖和2004年Backstage Bistro最佳现场表演奖。她作为歌手参与Jim Tomlinson制作的专辑《抒情诗》(The Lyric)成为2006“年度最佳专辑”。同时她进行全球巡演以报答歌迷的支持。
她进入Blue Note新出的专辑《电车上的早餐》有4首原创歌曲,包括专辑同名曲。这些都是由Jim Tomlinson和深受好评的小说家Kazuo Ishiguro(日裔英国人)为她量身打造。专辑中还有一些法语歌曲和经典老歌翻唱。 自2007年9月发售以来,专辑在法国爵士音乐排行榜上一直位居首位,在所有类型榜上也长期处于前20名。 全球发售的成功也指日可待。
命运的转变缘于她与萨克斯手Jim Tomlinson在牛津大学的相见。同Stacey一样,Jim也刚开始求学生涯。然而这次邂逅激起了两人心中渴望,他们一起走上了深爱的音乐之路。在Guildhall音乐学校修学一年后,Stacey在现在的丈夫Jim Tomlinson的陪伴下,来到伦敦磨练自己的技巧。
她同时向宝丽金,Candid唱片和播音员Humphrey Lyttelton寄了一张样片。这使她在Ian McKellen制作的电影版理查德三世(Richard III)获得一个角色,同时得到一份录音合同和全国电台唱片推介,并得到英国最著名的爵士音乐播音员的认可。
自1997年发行首张专辑《闭上你的眼睛》(Close Your Eyes)以来,Stacey的音乐道路一帆风顺。她对20世纪著名情歌清新动人的演绎使她在商业上和评论上都取得了成功。但直到1999年参与CBS周日清晨节目,Stacey才获得在全美露面的机会,这大大提高了她的知名度。她从此赢得了国际声誉,从台北蒋介石音乐厅,卡耐基音乐厅到巴黎著名奥林匹亚音乐厅,各大庆典活动上都能听到她的声音。
Stacey的拥趸不仅仅只有购买唱片和音乐会门票的忠诚歌迷。畅销犯罪小说作家John Harvey在他最新小说《止水》(Still Water)中编撰了Stacey演唱的场景。小说家Kazuo Ishiguro在参加BBC电台节目《荒岛大碟》(Desert Island Discs)时选择了她第三张专辑的歌曲《放飞你自己》(Let Yourself Go)作为自己在荒岛上必听的音乐。
Clint Eastwood邀请她在他70岁生日聚会上演唱。Michael Parkinson邀请她在他的电视节目上演唱。在一个周日,David Frost爵士邀请她来到《与Frost早餐》节目(Breakast with Frost)献歌一首并一起回顾早报的新闻。摇滚乐队史密斯飞船的成员Steven Tyler在最近一次采访中说stacey和Willie Nelson是自己最喜欢的歌手。
更能说明问题的也许是,Stacey赢得了所有她演唱歌曲作者的赞赏。三次获得奥斯卡最佳歌曲的Jay Livingston写到:“Stacey Kent让人耳目一新。她的歌声如今无人能比。她有爵士巨星Billie Holiday 和Ella Fitzgerald.那样的独特气质。发声如Nat Cole-纯净,清晰,抑扬顿挫。效果堪称完美。”
浪漫是Stacey音乐永恒的主题,她自己的经历就富于浪漫色彩。她歌唱永恒不变的故事,触动不同年龄听众的心弦。她歌唱曾经沧海的爱恋,重新唤起现代流行音乐已遗忘的真情。 她收到不同年龄,不同国籍歌迷的来信。在这个音乐已经成为代沟的年代,却有很多家庭三代人一起听她的演唱会。
她和Jim Tomlinson合作的获奖唱片《抒情诗》是最能表现“浪漫”这一主题。这也是她和丈夫合作得最好的一次。在这张唱片中,Jim的萨克斯和Stacey的嗓音完美融合,臻入化境。这在之前唱片中只能偶尔听到。就如纽约时报Stephen Holden评价“惊世之作或源于音乐与爱的纠织。每看到爵士歌手Stacey Kent和她丈夫萨克斯风演奏家Jim Tomlinson一同演奏,就如同身处遥远的爵士圣殿,偷听一对沉醉在幸福中情侣的枕边蜜语。”
Stacey的成功三言两语难以讲清,她依然一如既往的腼腆害羞。吸引你的唯有那天籁之声。需要细细聆听,而歌曲本身倒是次要了。2002年的专辑《重坠爱河》(In Love Again)内页中,和她首次合作的Ishiguro写到:“一首首歌听来,我们不须要先学会欣赏她的高超技艺,那深情的音符已触及内心。” Stacey自然真挚的演绎让作品也随之不同凡响。 她的感染力已经超越了爵士音乐本身。

Life and career
Stacey Kent is a Grammy-nominated American jazz singer.
Kent attended Newark Academy in Livingston, New Jersey. Her paternal grandfather was Russian. She graduated from Sarah Lawrence College in New York, and moved to England after her graduation. While studying at London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama, she met the tenor saxophonist Jim Tomlinson, whom she married on August 9, 1991.
In the early 1990s, Kent began her professional career singing regularly at Café Boheme in London's Soho. After two or three years, Kent began opening for established jazz acts across the road at the Ronnie Scott's nightclub in London.
Her first album, ‘Close Your Eyes’, was released in 1997. She has released nine further albums and has featured on three of Tomlinson's albums, most recently ‘The Lyric’ (2006), which won "Album of the Year" at the 2006 BBC Jazz Awards and was re-released on Blue Note in 2011.
Kent's music was championed by critic and jazz trumpeter Humphrey Lyttelton. She won the 2001 British Jazz Award and the 2002 BBC Jazz Award for Best Vocalist. She has also presented jazz programmes on BBC Radio 2 and 3.
At the 2006 BBC Jazz Awards, Tomlinson, upon receiving the award for "Album of the Year" for ‘The Lyric’, announced that Kent had signed with Blue Note.
Kent's album, ‘The Boy Next Door’, achieved Gold album status in France in September, 2006. ‘Breakfast On The Morning Tram’ (2007) achieved Platinum album status in France in November, 2007; Gold album status in Germany in February, 2008; and was nominated for Best Vocal Jazz Album at the 2009 Grammy Awards.
Kent appeared in Ian McKellen's 1995 film version of ‘Richard III’, singing a jazz version of Christopher Marlowe's poem ‘The Passionate Shepherd to His Love’.
Booker Prize-winning novelist Kazuo Ishiguro wrote the liner notes to Kent's 2003 album, ‘In Love Again’. Ishiguro has co-written four of the songs on the fall 2007 Blue Note album ‘Breakfast on the Morning Tram’. One of the songs written by Ishiguro, "The Ice Hotel", with music composed by Tomlinson, won first prize in the International Songwriting Competition in April 2008.
On March 31, 2009, Kent received the National Order of Arts and Letters (Ordre des Arts et des Lettres) – a government decoration – in recognition of her contribution to the arts, from French Culture Minister Christine Albanel.
Kent's 2010 album ‘Raconte-moi...’ was recorded entirely in the French language and was a commercial success in France and Germany, gaining Gold album status.
Kent's first live album, ‘Dreamer In Concert’, was released in 2011. It was recorded on May 30–31, 2011, at La Cigale in Paris. The album includes three songs previously unrecorded by Kent, Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Waters of March", and two new compositions by Jim Tomlinson; "Postcard Lovers", with lyrics by novelist Kazuo Ishiguro; and "O Comboio", written by the Portuguese poet António Ladeira, which Kent sings in Portuguese.
Album ‘Tenderly’ was released in November 2015.
She toured in Brazil,UK,Norway,France from August to October in 2016.

    干净如小女孩般的声音 没有常听的爵士女伶的厚度 但确能在每一个时候恰当的唱出一天的心情 没有刻意 甚至有一份吃棒棒糖的随意和惬意感
