“It’s as good a job of reconciling the past and the present as I have ever heard, and goes a lot further than anything else I’ve encountered in the past 12 months toward making sense out of a world gone wacko.” — Wall Street Journal
Kleinhans Music Hall is pleased to present Veronica Swift, returning to Buffalo to perform an intimate concert in the Mary Seaton Room on February 28, 2024 at 7:30 PM. Swift has been presented twice locally by Jazz Buffalo and most recently appeared on stage at Kleinhans with Chris Botti and the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra.
Vocal sensation Veronica Swift took the jazz world by storm with her critically acclaimed 2021 release This Bitter Earth, landing on the cover of DownBeat, topping the year-end lists for vocal releases and wowing audiences with her eclectic stage show at the Hollywood Bowl and beyond. For her new album– aptly entitled Veronica Swift – the versatile artist stretches her wings and opens up her wide range of influences to share who she truly is: a once-in-a-generation vocalist with unabashed confidence.

VERONICA SWIFT has ascended to the upper echelon of early 21st century jazz singers because of her virtuosic brilliance, interpretive ingenuity, bracing songwriting, and keen arrangements. Simply put, Swift is not only one of the most dazzling singers to emerge in her generation, she’s one of the most versatile.
Having made her mark on the international jazz scene as one of the star vocalists of her era, Veronica Swift has now expanded her style, establishing herself as a skilled rock and soul singer as well as a dynamic performer. Her third album “TransGenre” (2023) will venture into mixing jazz and classical with rock, soul, and funk paying homage to greats like Janis Joplin, David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix and Duke Ellington. Veronica’s ability to transcend different styles, and fully embody them with authenticity to tell a story makes her one of the most skillful singers in any genre, and displays her theatrical approach as a performer and artist.
