Madeleine Peyroux & Decca Records are thrilled to have the #1 Jazz Record in the country. The Blue Room, the new album from the acclaimed singer, has caught the attention of both music fans and critics resulting in the #1 Traditional Jazz Album on Billboard, iTunes and Amazon, and entering in at #62 on the Billboard Top 200. 


“Madeleine Peyroux returns as a masterful interpreter of classic songs … Peyroux’s rich tone, emotional depth and expressive story-telling … [are] evocative of Patsy Cline’s crossover country pop recordings.”

The Associated Press


“The primal appeal of these rural rhapsodies on the dark nights of the soul is beautifully served by Peyroux’s low-key, underplayed emotional resignation and parched, slightly weathered vocal texture … it’s the real thing.”

– **** Downbeat


Madeleine “has a jazz singer’s sense of interpretation, but her songs draw from folk, blues and classical music … [The Blue Room] has the most old-fashioned sound Peyroux has yet allowed. The string arrangements have the lushness of recording from the ’50s and ’60s … you could stick Doris Day or Patti Page in some of these arrangements and not bat an eye.”

New York Daily News


“This is one of the richest tributes I’ve heard in some time”

Sound & Vision Magazine


Madeleine will kick off her world tour on March 22nd with two sold-out nights at New York’s famed Lincoln Center, plus intimate sessions with WFUV, Sirius and WXPN. This tour will also see Madeleine perform alongside comedian & musician Steve Martin at The Hollywood Bowl in CA. Visit for more info.
