Madeleine Peyroux is in the midst of her journey. Renowned for her interpretive song skills, the talented lounge/jazz vocalist followed her creative muse on 2009’s Bare Bones by challenging herself to write a full album of her own compositions. Now with Standing On The Rooftop, she delves deeper into her reinvention, not only writing the bulk of the songs, but pushing past any preconceived notions about her music and daring herself to expand her sonic template. Peyroux wrote solo as well as with a number of collaborators, including former Rolling Stone Bill Wyman. The two met when he approached Peyroux at a jazz festival in Nice. Their caffeine-fueled writing sessions yielded the deliciously funky The Kind You Can’t Afford. Now, Peyroux is eager to take the songs from the studio to the street, fully aware from her past experience that this new bundle passes her stringent litmus test.
