Vocalist/Composer/Arranger Kristen Lee Sergeant New Release February 15 - SMOLDER - w/ Jeb Patton, Cameron Brown, Ted Nash and more!
(Published: January 17, 2019)


Kristen Lee Sergeant is a vocalist with effervescent energy, musical intensity and dramatic flair. Her debut record, "Inside Out", was a Downbeat Editor's Pick. Smolder is a story of fire - fully ablaze or newly extinguished, and is set to further ignite her international career.

"Smolder" spans 80's pop, bold interpretations of standards, and breathtaking originals - all bound together with a theme of elemental flame. Kristen is one of the rare singers who also creates her own compositions and arrangements, all with special attention to the meaning of the lyric. Never confining her musicians to mere accompaniment, there's always spontaneity and sense of musical conversation in her performances.

Kristen Lee Sergeant is a trained and experienced stage actress whose musical education took her from opera to rock before she fell in love with jazz. With such talents and a singular sense of taste, Kristen's live performances as exciting to watch as well as listen to on record.

"SMOLDER" CD release performance is March 26 at Birdland
w/ Ted Nash, Helen Sung & more!

"SMOLDER" Personnel:

Kristen Lee Sergeant: vocals/arrangements
Jeb Patton: piano
Cameron Brown: bass
Jay Sawyer: drums
Ted Nash: alto flute/alto saxophone
Jody Redhage Ferber: cello
Rogerio Boccato: percussion
What the press is saying...

"A special singer can evoke a thermometer's span of
temperatures while sustaining a singular fire within.
Kristen Lee Sergeant is special." - Bob Blumenthal

"Dramatically fresh arrangements...Sergeant puts her
theatricality to superb use...we hope to hear more in
the future." - Bobby Reed, Downbeat Magazine

"Fearless and thoughtful, instinctively unearthing a
song's latent possibilities in ways that other musical
performers haven't, Sergeant recalls the talent for
devil-may-care, in-your-face originality associated with
Anita O'Day, Abbey Lincoln or Carmen McRae."
