Just announced! Kleinhans Music Hall will present Veronica Swift, returning to Buffalo to perform an intimate concert in the Mary Seaton Room at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 28, 2024. Swift has been presented twice locally by Jazz Buffalo and most recently appeared on stage at Kleinhans with Chris Botti and the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra.
Vocal sensation Swift took the jazz world by storm with her critically acclaimed 2021 release “This Bitter Earth,” landing on the cover of DownBeat, topping the year-end lists for vocal releases and wowing audiences with her eclectic stage show at the Hollywood Bowl and beyond. For her new album – aptly titled “Veronica Swift” – the versatile artist stretches her wings and opens up her wide range of influences to share who she truly is: a once-in-a-generation vocalist with unabashed confidence.
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased by phone at 716-885-5500 or in person at the box office.
Swift has ascended to the upper echelon of early 21st century jazz singers because of her virtuosic brilliance, interpretive ingenuity, bracing songwriting, and keen arrangements. Simply put, Swift is not only one of the most dazzling singers to emerge in her generation, she’s one of the most versatile.
Having made her mark on the international jazz scene as one of the star vocalists of her era, Swift has now expanded her style, establishing herself as a skilled rock and soul singer as well as a dynamic performer.
Her third album, “TransGenre” (2023), will venture into mixing jazz and classical with rock, soul and funk, paying homage to greats like Janis Joplin, David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix and Duke Ellington. Swift’s ability to transcend different styles, and fully embody them with authenticity to tell a story, makes her one of the most skillful singers in any genre – and displays her theatrical approach as a performer and artist.
