Renowned vocalist Jeannie Gagné will be performing a free concert at the Friend Recital Hall at Berklee College of Music on Wednesday, November 10. She’ll be singing jazz and original songs, accompanied by a jazz trio of Berklee’s finest. Accompanying Jeannie will be Barry Silverman on piano, Shaye Jones on bass and Giancarlo di Frizio on drums.
Whether it’s Jazz, Rock, Soul, Folk, Singer/Songwriter, Blues, and yes Opera too– jeannie Gagné loves to sing. So, when people ask her “what’s your sound?”, Jeannie describes her own artist project as a mixture of what calls her: a bit bluesy soul, a bit jazz, a bit thoughtful/spiritual stuff, and a little edgy rock for some sauce. “It used to be you had to define yourself in one genre, but these days it’s just about good music! Can I have an amen!”
A world-class vocalist, Jeannie Gagné has sung with Philip Glass, George Duke, opened for Bare Naked Ladies, performed for NBC-TV with comedians Penn and Teller, toured with reggae legend Frankie Paul, and sings on the soundtrack for the feature film “Anima Mundi” (1993). She has received extensive press coverage such as feature stories on PBS’s All Things Considered and the CBS Evening News. Literally singing with the soundtrack of West Side Story before she learned to speak and writing songs since toddlerhood, Jeannie has always known that music is her life.
Jeannie is now working on her third album, featuring original songs about life’s journey and inspiration, which showcase her unique vocals and eclectic songwriting style. It brings together pop/rock with a little jazz and a little folk for a very contemporary sound that is distinctly Jeannie’s own.
What matters is being authentic, real. What matters is building and nurturing our combined community. What matters is spreading a little love every day, through the music we make.
This performance is free to all Berklee College of Music students and faculty as well of the general public. Seating is limited so show up early. The David Friend Recital Hall at Berklee College of Music, 921 Boylston St., Boston (across from Hynes Convention Center)
