Joelle Lurie Holiday Concert w/ Special Guest Matt Cusson
Back by popular demand, Joelle Lurie is presenting a festive holiday show at the Regattabar.
Joelle Lurie is a NYC-based jazz vocalist and songwriter. She brings her distinctive "jazzed-up pop & popped-up jazz" modern style to Take Me There (2014), her debut album of standards, originals, and reimagined pop covers. Selected by NPR's Song Travels with Michael Feinstein for a Spring 2015 feature, Take Me There features tight arrangements and production by Lurie's longtime bassist/bandmate, Ben Gallina, and the genre-crossing Pinehurst Trio.
She has performed at venues such as Birdland Jazz Club, SubCulture, Zinc Bar, NY Stock Exchange, Four Seasons, Top of the Rock, The Standard Hotel's Boom Boom Room, Rockwood Music Hall (June 2015 residency), and at the James Beard Awards at Lincoln Center.
Joelle is also a session singer, whose voice can also be heard in a variety of recordings, voice over spots, jingles, & backup vocals. She is originally from the Boston area, holds a Bachelor of Music from Boston University's College of Fine Arts, and is thrilled to be returning home to play at Regattabar.
