Tierney Sutton

For her first appearance at The Shedd, Tierney Sutton is joined by guitarist Serge Merlaud bassist Kevin Axt for an evening based on their 2014 project Paris Sessions. Recorded at Val d'Orge Studio in December 2012, Paris Sessions offers an intimate, revealing set of duos and trios which includes three Merlaud compositions and a range of songs by Rodgers & Hart, Heywood & Green, and Berman & Legrand among others. The intimate chemistry between singer, guitarist Merlaud and Tierney Sutton Band bassist Kevin Axt is maintained throughout. “I wanted to just sing the song and do sweet, straightforward treatments,” says Sutton. “No bells and whistles, no crazy arrangements…just the essence and the mood of the songs. And I think something succeeded because if I’m in an agitated mood and I put this record on, it just centers me.” Now Hear This Series Ticketing: Purchase at The Shedd Institute Ticket Office (541-434-7000, 868 High Street).
