Born: July 6, 1977
Compared with Sarah Vaughan, Patsy Cline, and Annie Ross by professional musicians and critics alike, Sarah Gromko’s vocals “show a deep sense of artistic maturity.” Her debut recording as a bandleader was nationally recognized as “intimate,” “eclectic,” and “undeniably killer.” The attention led to a licensing contract with Universal Records.
Over the years, Sarah has been recorded as a background singer, a featured jazz vocalist, and for both national and international commercials and TV spots (i.e. Showtime, PBS). Under her direction, Gromko’s jazz quartet held residencies at New York City’s Puppets Jazz Bar, Kavehaz/Mannahatta, and Blue Water Grill. Her live work focuses on original and jazz standards, and she enjoys surprising her audiences with clever, yet subtle, original arrangements. She currently has a weekly, Friday night residency at Pearl Wine Co. in New Orleans....
