Madeleine Peyroux: Finding Your Own Voice


Madeleine Peyroux’s sultry voice and winsome blend of folk, pop and jazz songs have taken her to concert halls, jazz clubs and festivals all over the world. Her singing wins widespread praise; she's been compared to Bessie Smith, Edith Piaf, Patsy Cline and Billie Holliday. In between her high-profile performances and recordings, Peyroux often busks outdoors, returning to her musical beginnings as a street performer in Paris.

(Broadcast: "Musicians' Spotlight,"  10/8/15 & 2/4/16. Listen weekly on on the radio Thursdays, 7:30 p.m., or via podcast.)

John Floridis, the host and producer of Musician's Spotlight, has been with Montana Public Radio since 1997. He has interviewed over 200 musicians during that time. He is also an independent recording and performing artist in his own right and a former registered music therapist.
