Hot new jazz singer Hailey Tuck guests
New jazz star Hailey Tuck is Jools' guest, singing live and playing some of her favourite records
Exciting young jazz singer Hailey Tuck is in the studio , singing live with Jools and the band and picking some of her favourite songs.
Hailey Tuck’s story sounds like a far-fetched film script. A teenager from Texas with a bob borrowed from Louise Brooks and a suitcase stuffed full of vintage dresses takes off for Paris with her college fund and a dream of becoming a jazz singer.
An Italian countess becomes her benefactor, she wows the crowds in crazy cabaret clubs and finds herself at underground jazz venues before her music wins her fans around the world and a legendary producer invites her to L.A. to record her debut album.
As unlikely as that sounds, those are just the bare bones of Hailey’s tale. Throw in a Baptist military boarding school, a brush with a member of Maroon 5 and a chiseled tap dancer doing a Josephine Baker striptease and you’re still only scratching the surface.
