Born: June 21 Primary Instrument: Vocalist
Sarah DeLeo is a contemporary jazz vocalist noted for ballads and music with a mellow Peggy Lee vibe.
She has been cited in The Jazz Singers: The Ultimate Guide by Scott Yanow, The New Face of Jazz by Cicily Janus, and the upcoming ninth edition of the Penguin Guide to Jazz. In March 2010 Sarah was selected to compete in WNYC's Battle of the Boroughs: Manhattan Throwdown. In July 2010 she performed at the Iridium Jazz Club as part of the club's first annual Jazz Vocalist Festival.
Sarah DeLeo takes the best from the masters and combines it with her own signature style to produce a sound that is both timeless and fresh. One hears her singing and is swept away to another time, and yet her powerful presence as a musical storyteller is thoroughly in the here and now: No matter the song, she delivers each lyric in such a personal way that the listener feels as if they are hearing their own stories. Her tireless exploration of many different styles of music yields fascinating results when it comes to song choices and arrangements, and her inventive melodic improvisation makes every restatement of a tune's melody thoroughly engaging - nothing's ever the same twice....
