We had a chance to sit down with Jazz Storyteller Tierney Sutton about her love for jazz, finding her band and her grammy nominations.
Tierney Sutton is considered the “Susan Lucci” of Jazz Grammy Nominations; having been nominated nine times, with eight consecutive nominations for “Best Jazz Vocal Album.” Sutton’s Grammy Nominated project, “ScreenPlay” is a deep dive into songs from American film and has already been hailed “an aural Oscar.” Hardly a stranger to the Grammy phenomenon, Tierney has been nominated for every record she’s released in the last 15 years without a Grammy win. This year promises to be different; the stars are aligned, and a win is imminent!
Nine Grammy nods are not the only accomplishments of the Tierney Sutton Band who wrote the score for Clint Eastwood’s film “Sully,” starring Tom Hanks. The final track of “ScreenPlay” is an original song written for “Sully” entitled “Arrow,” with music by Christian Jacob and lyrics by Tierney Sutton. The end-title song “Flying Home” features music by Eastwood and lyrics by Tierney Sutton and JB Eckl, performed by Tierney Sutton and The Tierney Sutton Band.
In celebration of “ScreenPlay” and Sutton’s 9 the Grammy nomination, The
Tierney Sutton Band will be performing at the famous Catalina Bar and Grill in Hollywood, CA on January 3 rd and 4 th, 2020. www.catalinajazzclub.com
