Biography

Danish jazz vocalist Sinne Eeg (sée-neh/ée) is known throughout the world, but it all started in a small town called Lemvig in September 1977. Sinne grew up in a jazzy home, where her father played double bass, her mother the clarinet and her brother the saxophone. Naturally, Sinne started singing. She graduated in 2003 from the Rhythmic Music Conservatory in Esbjerg and then moved to Copenhagen to pursue her career. Her plan obviously worked.

 

After putting in her time for years on the road, performing at small clubs and cafes, Sinne won her first Danish Music Award for her album “Waiting For Dawn” in 2007. Her dark vocals and modern interpretation of Nordic jazz touched audiences all over Europe and Asia. Since then, Sinne has released several prize-winning albums, including her solo album “Dreams” from 2018, recorded in New York City with Scott Colley, Joey Baron, Larry Koonse and Jacob Christoffersen.

 

In early 2020 Sinne released one of her biggest projects ever: “We’ve Just Begun”, a winning collaboration with the 19-piece Danish Radio Big Band and her 9th album overall. The record was produced by André Fischer (Diane Schuur, Nina Simone, Natalie Cole) and mixed at the acclaimed Capitol Studios in Los Angeles by the legendary Al Schmitt (Frank Sinatra, Miles Davis, Ray Charles). The album has received countless international rave reviews, hovered high for many weeks on the American JazzWeek Top 50 chart, and continues to enjoy frequent airplay in all radio markets.

 

Sinne has many loyal fans in the US, Scandinavia and Asia, especially China and Japan. She is poised for a major breakthrough in the US, where she regularly tours. She has performed with American jazz icons including Larry Goldings, Peter Erskine and Ken Peplowski; and at storied jazz clubs including Green Mill in Chicago and Birdland in New York.

 

The Danish songstress is versatile, equally comfortable fronting big orchestras in concert halls as well as smaller ensembles in intimate jazz clubs. Everywhere she sings – Tokyo, Copenhagen, Los Angeles or Madrid – audiences are mesmerized by her incandescent phrasing and scatting, all with natural, perfect pitch.

 

Sinne Eeg is not only a brilliant vocalist; she is also a great songwriter. Her talent for writing and composing won the prestigious Danish Carl Prize 2018 for Song Of The Year, “Aleppo”, included on her album “Dreams”. Sinne has received numerous accolades, including four Danish Music Awards, the Danish Radio P2 Jazz Prize, the Ben Webster Prize, the French Prix Du Jazz and Queen Ingrid’s Honorary Grant, personally awarded by Queen Margrethe of Denmark.

Quotes & Reviews

“Learn to say this name: It’s pronounced “Seen-uh Eeg.” The Danish jazz singer, an established star in Europe, checks all the boxes; burnished tone, perfect intonation, swing, unerring taste and an adventurous streak. She is a complete musician who, remarkably, also has a gift for interpreting lyrics in a natural, conversational way.”

– Allen Morrison, Downbeat Magazine ★★★★1/2

“So many superlatives have been showered upon Danish singer Sinne Eeg that you wonder whether anyone could be that good – or was this yet another case of flawless but cold perfection? Well, this album says she’s certainly that good. She has an attractive, flexible voice, sings and writes songs in two languages, and improvises perfect wordless scat… The 10 tracks are filled with fascinating orchestral textures, dotted with brief but tasty solos.”

– Dave Gelly, The Guardian

“If Dreams doesn’t make this Danish wonder woman, Sinne Eeg, into a familiar name in the world of jazz music, then people are simply not listening.”

“Eeg has an abundance of “chops” but what is thoroughly refreshing is her astute awareness of when and how to use them. There is never even a hint of over the top showmanship that seems to be de rigueur with today’s female divas who revel is showing off their range or raspiness. Instead we find nuance, spacing and silky smooth transitions.”

– R.A. Miriello, Notes On Jazz

“Sinne Eeg gave a perfect lesson in the art of jazz singing March 15 at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola in New York. In the modern era, when most jazz singers draw from the pop canon “Eeg has an abundance of “chops” but what is thoroughly refreshing is her astute awareness of when and how to use them. There is never even a hint of over the top showmanship that seems to be de rigueur with today’s female divas who revel is showing off their range or raspiness. Instead we find nuance, spacing and silky smooth transitions.”

“The news that Sinne Eeg is a much-admired jazz vocalist in Denmark might not grab many front pages, but the prizewinning 40-year-old is a genuine original and her stock is growing. A singer of laidback improv alertness and coolly lustrous tonality…”

“The best female jazz singer I have heard since the legends such as Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald.”

“Her control, her phrasing and her tone is some kind of wonderful… A masterclass for all and any vocalists anywhere on the planet, no matter their chosen genre of music they sing.”

– Simon Redley, Music Republic Magazine

“There is a depth to the voice that recalls the great Sarah Vaughan… possessing a flexible and throaty voice that has real depth to it, Sinne Eeg seems set to become a significant player on the jazz vocalist circuit and this fine recording will contribute significantly to enhancing her credentials.”
