Date Night with Jazz Singer Courtney Fortune

America's next big jazz vocalist." – Genlux Magazine
 
"Courtney Fortune's "Lost In The Memory" is a revelation. The Seattle vocalist is too, for [Chris] Walden, who discovered her. In this original song she wrote with the bandleader, she almost overshadows the big band…a moody, swelling force of nature, and definitely a highlight."  – Writer Carol Banks Weber on The Chris Walden Big Band "Full-On!" album

 
Courtney Fortune is an American pop/jazz singer and songwriter whose unique style has earned her international recognition as a rising star. She released her debut jazz album “Speak Love” in 2009, co-produced by six-time Grammy®-nominated composer/arranger Chris Walden. She is also a featured vocalist in Walden’s Grammy®-nominated Chris Walden Big Band, which includes her on their newly released album “Full On!”. Courtney has toured the globe with her unique crossover sound, was named one of Glamour Magazine's Top 10 College Women in 2009, has been recognized by MTV, the TED organization and John Lennon Foundation, and has shared the stage with Garrison Keillor of A Prairie Home Companion. She is currently at work on her second album in Los Angeles.

“She is a steady warm presence, and she handles adeptly the balance of grace and appeal to sensuousness that is an earmark of many jazz-vocal greats. That’s quite an accomplishment for a young performer of unquestionable beauty…Courtney has developed a textured, sultry, arrestingly mature torchsinger’s delivery to which experience lends depth and credence.” – Peter Monaghan, Earshot Jazz Magazine
