From the Artist
"I have been building on the relationships I developed in co-writing, and something new has taken hold of me," Peyroux says. "This project is meant to be a wider dreamscape than previous recordings. I'm interested in exploring tougher sounds, even ugly sounds... trying to find something more raw than the voice that I have now, and in the accompaniment that I have become used to."
2011 album from the acclaimed Jazz/Pop vocalist. On Standing On The Rooftop there's one very interesting collaborator that may have the key to opening new doors: the Rolling Stones' Bill Wyman, whom Peyroux met at the Nice Jazz Festival while waiting to hear B.B. King. The song, entitled 'The Kind You Can't Afford', Peyroux says, is a testament to owning what money can't buy. Other current collaborators include Jonatha Brooke, David Batteau, Andy Rosen, and Jenny Scheinman.
