ROBERTNELSON & Renaissance
ROBERTNELSON’s unmistakable voice and dynamic repertoire is quickly propelling him as one of today's most compelling rhythm & jazz vocalist. From his daring takes on timeless standards, to his emotionally resonant originals and signature interpretations of pop and soul classics. ROBERTNELSON’s live performances and collaborations with Grammy Award winner Wynton Marsalis, Denise Thimes, Laka, and big band leader Lamar Harris’ Georgia Mae are being hailed by The St. Louis Post Dispatch and is described by The Huntsville Times as “suffused with graciousness, beauty and on occasion, heartbreak.”

This groovy jazz party not only celebrates the art of passionate vocals coupled with extraordinary musicianship, yet pops the cork in a passionate celebration of love and life before a live audience.
