Biography

Drawing inspiration from music from all over the world, and crossing genres of classical, jazz and old-fashioned pop, Thomas Lauderdale founded the “little orchestra” Pink Martini in 1994.

Today, featuring lead singer China Forbes and a dozen musicians with songs in 25 languages, Pink Martini performs its multilingual repertoire on concert stages and with symphony orchestras throughout Europe, Asia, Greece, Turkey, the Middle East, Northern Africa, Australia, New Zealand, South America and North America.

The band’s debut album, Sympathique, was released in 1997, garnering the group nominations for “Song of the Year” and “Best New Artist” in France’s Victoires de la Musique Awards in 2000.

Most recently, in 2019, Thomas Lauderdale and members of Pink Martini collaborated on a new release with the international singing sensation Meow Meow. This album, Hotel Amour, features guest appearances by Rufus Wainwright, The von Trapps, Barry Humphries (of Dame Edna fame), and the inimitable late French pianist and composer, Michel Legrand.
