Sinne Eeg is considered the leading Scandinavian jazz vocalist. In fact, she is known as one of the best jazz vocalists in all of Europe. Everyone she plays with has been "blown away" by her incredible voice, her outstanding performance and her amazing scatting skills. Among those are great american performers, such as Peter Erskine, Roger Neumann, Peter Sprague, Joe Le Barbara, Lee Pearson and Larry Koonse. In addition, Sinne has recorded with artists like Curtis Stigers, Randy Brecker and Peter Erskine.
The Danish vocalist has won many prizes and awards in her career. Her latest release, "Face The Music," won the Danish Music Award for Best Vocal Jazz Album in 2014, which is her third Danish Music Award (an equivalent to the American grammy). Recently she topped that by winning Best Vocal Jazz Album of 2014 in France. She has built faithful audiences, not only in Denmark and Scandinavia, but also in Japan, China, Korea and most of Europe. From her current base in Los Angeles, she is now creating audiences in the US.

In the course of the past few years Sinne Eeg has taken over the throne as Denmark’s leading jazz vocalist, partly with the help of her outstanding, critically acclaimed album “Waiting For Dawn”, where she brought together an A-list of Scandinavian jazz musicians to interpret a program consisting mainly of her own compositions. It was this quartet of Swedish pianist Lars Jansson, Danish bass-giant Mads Vinding and young drum-star Morten Lund. For this album Sinne received a Danish Music Award. Sinne’s Third CD release, “Remembering” (2008), also drew richly deserved praise from a range of unanimous reviewers to demonstrate that this hot Danish jazz vocalist is well on her way to an international breakthrough. Sinne’s 4th album, “Don’t Be So Blue” was released in 2010. Again Sinne received a Danish Music Award. “The Beauty Of Sadness” was released on September 2013, featuring drummer Peter Erskine and Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra.
Sinne’s interpretations of American jazz classics and her own original songs are personalized in a highly unique way. Her vocal style is mature, intense, slightly understated and yet very ambitious, and not least, extremely talented. It is this talent and her dark, sonorous vocals that are taking Sinne all the way to the top. Growing up in a musical home and a good musical environment in her Danish hometown of Lemvig doubtlessly contributed to Sinne Eeg’s decision to pursue a musical career, way back in her high school days. Her sources of inspiration include Sarah Vaughan, Betty Carter, Dinah Washington, Miles Davis, Keith Jarrett, Chet Baker and Oscar Peterson. In 2003 Sinne Eeg graduated from the Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, Southern Denmark.
