Songs From Other Places is a captivating and eclectic collection of songs, which includes originals written for Stacey by Nobel Prize-winning author, Kazuo Ishiguro and Jim Tomlinson. The expanding repertoire for this project is an exploration of the themes of place, belonging, and the transformative power of travel. It includes songs by Paul Simon, Jobim, Weill & Gershwin, Lennon & McCartney, Stevie Nicks, plus new Tomlinson & Ishiguro originals, all performed in Stacey’s intoxicating, multilingual style which fuses jazz, folk, Chanson and Bossa Nova.
With over 2 million album sales, approaching half a billion streams on Spotify, and a host of awards including Best Vocal Album for I Know I Dream (Sony) at the 2018 Jazz Japan Awards, Kent continues to beguile as an artist and performer. Her return to the CCB is not to be missed!
