Carole J. Bufford has become one of the most sought after performers on the American vintage pop and cabaret scene. Her shows, including “speak easy.” (featuring the Grammy Award-winning Vince Giordano & The Nighthawks), “Come Together,” and “You Don’t Own Me,” earned her rave reviews from The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Times (UK). She currently tours with her solo shows as well as with symphonies all over the country. Carole is also the recipient of BroadwayWorld’s Vocalist of the Year and the recent Gold Medal winner of the American Traditions Vocal Competition. www.carolejbufford.com
“Her voice, bright yet sensual, soared…Bufford threw herself into each number; her exuberance and sense of humour won us over from the outset.”
-Clive Davis, The Times (UK)
“The real thing: you know it when you see it…The way her voice, with its blues inflections, cut a swath, leaving nothing standing, tempts me to describe her with groveling hyperbole as an earthier, more acerbic 21st-century Barbra Streisand.” -Stephen Holden, The New York Times
