Stacey Kent – I Know I Dream
  • West End

The internationally acclaimed, Grammy-nominated vocalist, Stacey Kent, returns to the UK for a very limited number of 2017/18 dates, featuring music from her latest album 'I Know I Dream' (Sony Music/Okeh). It's a big year ahead for acclaimed Grammy-nominated singer, Stacey Kent. With the release this autumn of her most ambitious project yet, her first orchestral album, and another worldwide tour, Stacey returns to LST with her 5-piece band, featuring songs from the new album, I KNOW I DREAM (SONY Music/Okeh). This beautiful collection of songs includes American Standards, Bossa Nova classics, Chansons, as well as original songs and reprises of some of Stacey's most loved repertoire - including music from her Grammy Nominated album, 'Breakfast on the Morning Tram'. With career sales approaching 2 million albums, Stacey's 11th studio album, 'I Know I Dream', is a sure to be a highlight not only for its breathtaking beauty, but also for its assured expressiveness. The Album follows 'Tenderly' (2015), an intimate collaboration with Brazilian music master, Robert Menescal. Stacey's previous albums include the Brazilian-flavored, 'The Changing Lights', (2013), 'Dreamer In Concert' (2011), recorded live in Paris at La Cigale, her all-French, 'Raconte-moi' (2010), and the Platinum-selling, Grammy nominated, 'Breakfast on the Morning Tram' (2007). Throughout her career, Stacey's band has featured Jim Tomlinson (sax & flute) whose songwriting partnership with Kazuo Ishiguro has formed an essential plank in her repertoire. For Stacey, whose international touring schedule keeps her on the road for most of the year, her return to Leicester Square Theatre provides a rare opportunity for UK fans see her 'live' in concert. "She has charm to burn, a smile that could give you hope in February and sings like nobody's business" - The Wall Street Journal

"Stacey Kent has been quietly sitting on top of the world of jazz vocals, for many years" - Jamie Cullum
