Award-winning Danish vocalist Sinne Eeg joins up with jazz guitarist Peter Sprague for a night of jazz classics, Brazilian bossa nova, beautiful Sinne ballads, and a Beatles tune for balance. Seven years back, Peter’s friend living in Denmark alerted him to be on the lookout for a rising vocal star named Sinne. The next time she was on tour in the U.S. Peter lined up a few concerts and that marked the beginning of a beautiful musical friendship. Since then they’ve played in L.A., San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, the Canary Islands, 3 country wide tours of Denmark with more beautiful music on the horizon.
Local San Diego guitarist Peter Sprague is known far and wide in the jazz and music community. He is an award-winning guitarist, producer, arranger, teacher, mentor, collaborator, and much more. He has been a guest artist on many records and has performed and toured with Chick Corea, Hubert Laws, Dianne Reeves, David Benoit, Sergio Mendes, and many others. In 2015, Peter was honored with the Lifetime Achievement award at the San Diego Music Awards. He continues to be active publishing music books, delivering online video courses, as well as producing music at his SpragueLand studio in Encinitas.
Sinne Eeg is one of the strongest new female vocalists from the Scandinavian jazz scene. With five albums she has established herself as a Danish jazz singer with international potential. She is influenced by Nancy Wilson, Betty Carter, and Sarah Vaughan, but with her personal touch of soft darkness, Sinne keeps the Scandinavian melancholy settled in her music. Since the release of the album Waiting For Dawn (2007) Sinne has won several music awards in Denmark including two Danish Music Award (Best Jazz Vocal album 2007, 2010).
Peter and Sinne will be joined by bassist Justin Grinnell and drummer Duncan Moore.
