One of the world’s most respected singers, a performer at the 2009 MusicFest, returns to the Comox Valley this fall.
Jennifer Warnes will sing Sept. 29 at the Sid Williams Theatre.
Warnes is one of the most renowned singers of our time, whose voice is one of the loveliest instruments in contemporary music. As a solo artist or a duet partner, on albums or in movies, Warnes sings it straight from the heart.
Her voice is pure. The emotions it conveys are pure, too.
Warnes has recorded songs that have won Grammys and Oscars, songs that topped the pop charts and honoured the most subtle aspects of art.
The songs also enhanced Warnes’ reputation as one of the most sensitive and selfless vocalists in modern song. Over the years, she has sung on recordings by Harry Belafonte, Jackson Browne, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Sam and Dave, James Taylor, Tina Turner, Bobby Womack, Warren Zevon and countless others.
Casual fans might know her from AM-friendly duets with Joe Cocker and Bill Medley, while more dedicated fans prize her album Famous Blue Raincoat. Known as Jenny Sings Lenny, it features Warnes singing the songs of Leonard Cohen.
