Cécile McLorin Salvant

Singer, composer, and visual artist Cécile McLorin Salvant is a unique voice supported by an intelligence and full-fledged musicality that light up every note she sings. Salvant has developed a passion for storytelling and finding the connections between vaudeville, blues, global folk traditions, theater, jazz, and baroque music. She is an eclectic curator, unearthing rarely recorded and forgotten songs with strong narratives, interesting power dynamics, unexpected twists, and humor.
Salvant won the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz International Vocals Competition in 2010. She has won three Grammy Awards for Best Jazz Vocal Album and has been nominated for three more. In 2020, Salvant received a MacArthur Fellowship and a Doris Duke Artist Award.
