“Steinway allows me and therefore the listener to receive the optimum musical experience. It's magical!”
As a a composer of words and music, a vocalist and a classically trained pianist, with over 265 songs available for downloads and streaming from her 22 CDs, Newhall has always had a passion for new experiences and the fresh directions they can bring. Her explorations have led her to the realms of jazz, hip hop, rock, pop and new folk, expanding her musical universe and revealing themselves in her warm, rich vocals, lyrical vocabulary and the immaculately nuanced notes of her piano. Common through the warp and weft of all her changes and adventures and endeavors is an enduring sense of spirit. Raised on a farm in Arizona, she grew up in the starkly beautiful shadows of the Sierra Estrella Mountains west of Phoenix. When her music-loving parents bought the six-year old Jeanne a piano, she could barely reach the keys. She made her professional debut at 14, and before she was 16, had graduated high school, and mastered six Mozart concertos. Ultimately she earned her music degree in Piano Performance from Arizona State University. With college behind her, the classically trained pianist was determined to make a career creating her own musical universe. Today her voice and music have friends all over the world. Newhall is based in Los Angeles, and her club, concert and festival schedule ensure her standing as a frequent flyer to Singapore, London, Athens, and Japan. Her recordings have earned airplay on hundreds of radio stations throughout the globe. She’s been a Steinway & Sons Piano Artist since 1998. A few years ago, Hal Leonard (world’s largest sheet music publisher) published the Jeanne Newhall Piano Folio Songbook, a 70-page book featuring her 14 of her original songs. An artist ever in transition, Jeanne Newhall makes words and music that possess the magic to affect, enrich and transform.
