A 8-time Grammy nominee, Sutton has received 7 consecutive nominations for “Best Jazz Vocal Album”- a nomination for every project she has released for the last decade. In 2013 she released “After Blue”, a jazz-inspired re-imagining of the legacy of Joni Mitchell. Her main work has been with the Tierney Sutton band. With a recording and touring history spanning over 20 years and 9 CDs, “TSB” has traveled a rare path. Comprised of Sutton and instrumental virtuosos Kevin Axt, Ray Brinker, Trey Henry and Christian Jacob, the band functions as a true collaborative (and legally incorporated) unit and makes all musical as well as business decisions as partners. In 2011 the TSB received a Grammy nomination for it’s collaborative arranging, the only collaborative team ever to receive that honour. Tierney has headlined in recent years at The Hollywood Bowl, Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center and Jazz At Lincoln Center. She can also be heard on film and television soundtracks including that of The Academy Award-nominated film “The Cooler” as well as on television commercials (BMW, Green Giant, Yoplait Yogurt, Coke). Recently she collaborated with Clint Eastwood and the TSB on the sound track of the Clint Eastwood film “Sully”. The latest CD of the Tierney Sutton Band “The Sting Variations” was nominated for a Grammy again.
