Tierney Sutton Band
The Sting Variations
“A serious jazz artist who takes the whole enterprise to another level.”- The New York Times
A seven-time GRAMMY® nominee, Sutton has received six consecutive nominations for “Best Jazz Vocal Album” – a nomination for every project she has released for the last decade. With a recording and touring history spanning over 20 years and nine CDs, the Tierney Sutton Band, “TSB” has traveled a rare path. Comprised of Sutton and instrumental virtuosos Kevin Axt, Ray Brinker, Trey Henry, and Christian Jacob, the band functions as a true collaborative. In 2011, TSB received a Grammy nomination for its collaborative arranging, the only collaborative team ever to receive this honor. Christian Jacob and TSB scored the original music for Clint Eastwood’s feature film Sully, starring Tom Hanks and Laura Linney. The band released a new recording, The Sting Variations in fall 2016, which has been nominated for the 2017 Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album.
