Heartfelt Jazz and Renditions of Timeless Classics with Mette Juul

Acclaimed jazz singer, songwriter, and guitarist Mette Juul has been widely praised for her inimitable vocals and heartfelt performances. 

On her latest album, Celeste, Juul shows new sides of herself that resonate with listeners. The new music has expanded her fan base and received many great reviews from Danish and international media.  At the Jazz Festival, she presents her new album with Swedish guitarist Andreas Hourdakis and Danish bassist / cellist Jesper Thorn.

You can look forward to personal renditions of timeless American classics and songs by Juul. The album has been well received internationally with critics writing things like:

“The only other singer I can recall who achieved that same effect was the late Shirley Horn. Shirley, like Mette, could turn a swing into a lovelorn ballad and vice versa”. 
Lance Liddle - London August 2023.

“There is both drama and tension in the voice - but never in a high-pitched, distant way. There is a palpable presence in the vocals. Celeste is a highly successful vocal jazz album that positions Mette Juul firmly in Danish jazz.”
