The Story

Connie Lansberg is a lover of story and melody fused with the freedom and interplay of great musicians. For this reason, The American Songbook is just the beginning of her inspiration. She is accomplished at taking great pop songs and arranging them for jazz musicians for the pleasure of her audience. 

As a songwriter as well as a jazz artist, her songwriting style was formed from the classic folk music her mother listened to when Connie was a small child – Simon and Garfunkle, Carole King and even the stories from retro American country. 

Joining her is Jex Saarelaht, an established Melbourne pianist-composer and winner of the 2006 Melbourne Jazz Fringe Festival’s inaugural composer commission. Jex has performed alongside Australia's best known performers such as Kate Ceberano and Renee Geyer, and was a founding member of celebrated bands including Dianna Kiss.

"Connie Lansberg has a voice that simply releases the melody. No tricks, no fancy stuff, just gorgeous singing."  - 3MBS

"Poised, beautiful and stylishly attired Connie Lansberg commands her audience’s attention from the first note. The singing is clear, powerful and intimate all at the same time. Brilliant!” - Saturday Morning Jazz
