Audrey Silver Audrey Silver

Audrey Silver is one of the most elegantly creative singers in jazz today. Known for her smooth, effortless sound, sensitive interpretations, satisfying swing, and unique approach to the American songbook, Audrey sings with a style that radiates her warm, generous personality, Jazztimes’ Christopher Loudon writes, “...her voice is like pure sterling. Her phrasing is exquisite, her clarity and enunciation on par with the great Jo Stafford and her breath control—a talent so often, and so wrongfully, overlooked—rivals Sinatra’s.”

Audrey’s steady stream of appearances—including performances at the Tanglewood Jazz Festival and New York’s prestigious JVC Jazz Festival—have made her more sought after than ever. Based in New York City, she regularly performs at numerous venues including 55 Bar, Cornelia Street Cafe and The Kitano.

In April, 2016 Audrey will be releasing her third CD, Very Early. Included in the line- up are two revered jazz musicians, Bruce Barth on piano and Lewis Nash on bass. The album is a collection of standards and originals and contains a contemporary and a French song.

Audrey received critical praise for her “vocal prowess” in her second album, Dream Awhile, which features many of the players that have worked with her in New York clubs throughout her career, including pianist Joe Barbato, bassist Joe Fitzgerald, guitarist Chris Bergson, and drummers Anthony Pinciotti and Todd Isler. The recording wowed critics, who lauded her thoughtful, charming, and uniquely personal interpretations of 11 lesser-known jazz standards.

Her phrasing is exquisite, her clarity and enunciation on par with the great Jo Stafford and her breath control—a talent so often, and so wrongfully, overlooked—rivals Sinatra’s.” —Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes.com

”Audrey Silver has a voice that’s unforgettable. [Her] voice is deep and rich, and she has a way of really emoting that makes the songs more intimate.... Audrey’s... voice of gold create(s) an album that jazz fans and casual listeners won’t want to miss.” —Andrea Guy, CD Review Blog

“A sincere, multi-talented singer and an intelligent entertainer with class and vibrant originality

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
