Aline Vida

When one feels deep passion for creating art, keeping such fervor alive isn't a question; it's an absolute must. Singer/songwriter Aline Vida knows this, for expressing herself in song is a natural part of her everyday life.

This current Seattle, Washington resident spent much of her formidable years moving around the West Coast with her family, spending time in southern California and Arizona. Aline says she was just a toddler when she found her voice.

“My parents used to record me on cassette tape when I was a baby,” Aline explains. “And once, my mom was singing 'You Light Up My Life.' I just started singing, and eventually I noticed that I received a lot of positive feedback. Singing just felt natural to me. It was my calling.”

While many think they have the chops to make their music dream a reality, doing the hard work is sometimes too much to take. But for Aline – whose striking vocals can easily ebb and flow within the expansive spectrums of rock, jazz, and R&B – her journey is a true labor of love. She graduated with a Dramatic Arts degree from Los Angeles' American Academy of Dramatic Arts, where she honed her craft under the likes of vocal coach John Peck. Later, she immersed herself in the City of Angels' ever-changing music scene, performing at Les Deux Café, and Drai's Hollywood. She would often perform during breaks for jazz/blues star Barbara Morrison, and sit in with bassist Leroy Ball and the Do Got Band.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
