With wide-ranging influences such as Bjork, Dianne Reeves, Carmen McRae, Joni Mitchell, Walter Hawkins and Cassandra Wilson, jazz and gospel vocalist Valerie Troutt is a tremendously creative artist for whom art and activism are intertwined.
Troutt has shared stages and collaborated with major recording artists like Les Nubians, Jennifer Johns, Maria Muldaur, Kimiko Joy, and Sister Monica Parker, and has recorded with modern composers like Gregory Del Piero, Emanuel Ruffler, Howard Wiley and Jaz Sawyer. She has also performed extensively with Linda Tillery’s Cultural Heritage Choir and served as a principle singer in La Pena – Ayer, Hoy y Pa’Lante, an original suite of music by three-time GRAMMY nominee Wayne Wallace.
