About Cécile McLorin Salvant

Known for her emotive, highly resonant voice and swinging virtuosity, singer Cécile McLorin Salvant first came to wide public acclaim after winning the 2010 Thelonious Monk Jazz Vocal Competition. Showcasing her love of classic acoustic jazz as well as her French heritage, Salvant's Grammy-winning albums -- 2015's For One to Love, 2017's Dreams and Daggers, and 2018's The Window -- display her keen affinity for lesser-known standards and songs drawn from the blues, gospel, and European song traditions. She has continued to expand her approach, moving between bold covers and her own artful, intimate originals, as on 2022's Ghost Song.
