Tish Oney

Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Tish Oney

Dr. Tish Oney, vocalist, arranger, pianist, composer and Artistic Director of several internationally-touring productions including her brand new 'Sweet Youth' tour (celebrating the summer 2011 release of her new duo album with guitarist John Chiodini), 'The Peggy Lee Project,' 'Tish Oney's Big Band Excursion,' 'Tish Oney's Swingin' Christmas, and 'An Evening With Tish Oney,' completed her Doctor of Musical Arts degree at The University of Southern California's renowned Thornton School of Music. 'Sweet Youth' features the great John Chiodini on electric and acoustic guitars in a mesmerizing interplay of voice and guitar performing original music and duo arrangements of jazz standards the likes of which have not been experienced since Ella Fitzgerald collaborated with Joe Pass... 'The Peggy Lee Project,' resulting from Oney's dissertation research, features Dr. Oney's updated, contemporary jazz arrangements of original songs by Peggy Lee to the delight of both young and seasoned audiences. Tish's collaboration with Lee's former music director and guitarist, John Chiodini and his talented jazz trio has produced this unparalleled tribute to an important twentieth-century American female songwriter. 'Tish Oney's Swingin' Christmas,' which debuted at the famous Jazz Bakery, features your favorite holiday music gift-wrapped in contemporary and classic jazz styles. 'Tish Oney's Big Band Excursion' (Tish's new big band show) highlights her calling as a big band vocalist and features contemporary arrangements of classic and original jazz by award-winning arrangers Chris Walden, Joe Riposo and Jason Goldman. 'An Evening With Tish Oney,' Tish's solo piano/vocal show, appropriately entertains smaller, intimate venues. A highly successful “crossover” artist, Dr. Oney also tours as a lyric soprano soloist, performing oratorio and recitals....

”Tish Oney, whose previous CD, Dear Peg, was a tribute to Peggy Lee, on Sweet Youth showcases her delightful voice on a set of duets with guitarist John Chiodini... Her choice of notes and use of space are quite sophisticated. Chiodini, a masterful accompanist and a subtle soloist, has a style that is perfectly complementary and plenty of musical magic takes place between the duo throughout Sweet Youth. This exquisite set, which rewards repeated listening, is available from www.blujazz.com.” (Scott Yanow, LA Jazz Scene)

“(Sweet Youth is) a vocal jazz album, but one with a nice sort of difference, given that the vocals of Tish Oney are only backed by a bit of acoustic guitar! Yet despite the lack of familiar piano, bass, and drums, Tish has a hell of a swinging sound...one that often leads off a tune without the guitar, and then seems to inspire the instrument to stretch out on its own! She's a hell of a singer with a great ability to stretch out her lyrics in true jazz-based ways, really inflecting things yet never going too far over the top, and making for a nice mix with guitarist John Chiodini on the record...
