Champian Fulton


“In an age when lots of albums try to sell you a bill of goods or present false deities, Champian makes her mark by just being herself. It’s a novel concept that shouldn’t have to be….Champian continues to dazzle and delight on this album, demonstrating that her truest voice may very well be found in her piano playing.” Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz 

“As a vocal interpreter of standards, there’s simply no room for many who are doing it any better right now.” WRTI Philadelphia

“loves to deliver unpretentious, swinging fun.” – Downbeat Magazine 

“A charming young steward of the mainstream jazz tradition…” Nate Chinen, THE NEW YORK TIMES

“An assured vocalist with a galvanizing presence.” THE NEW YORKER

“Champian’s vocals reveal an evolving, idiosyncratic singing style: unpredictable, surprising and incredibly elastic.” – Hot House Magazine

“[Champian’s] voice is a little bit of heaven here on earth. Subservient to each song (as it should be), she takes lyrics and makes them all into one-act vignettes, believable, honest, imbued with a veracity that transcends the art of vocalese into a kind of personal communication that will resonate deep in your soul. “ Mike Greenblatt for “The Aquarian” 

“[Champian is] an artist who radiates the joy of creation with a luminescent personality…and—like the sounds of of Bud Powell and Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong—it lifts the spirit high.” – All About Jazz

“…joyfully anchored in a style that’s pure, unmannered swing; She is a superb steward of America’s own music at its best, and that’s a very welcome proposition.” CABARET SCENES

“Fulton moves effortlessly and vividly from delight, to wistfulness, to wounded angst in a matter of seconds and makes it seem completely natural, the work of a deep and insightful individual and a rare force on both the keys and the mic.” NEW YORK MUSIC DAILY

“Champian is the most gifted pure jazz singer of her generation”  Mark Stryker, DETROIT FREE PRESS
