Christiana Drapkin

Christiana came to the US as a Fulbright exchange student in theater. At Tulane in New Orleans she immediately found her strength in her singing. After moving to New York, she's never looked back and found her true artistic home here. She's immersed herself in the standard repertoire of the American Songbook, as well as bebop lines. Her early classical European training keeps peeking through in improvisations that don't only lean on Lester Young and Charlie Parker, but also on everything from Bach to Bartok. She is noted for her highly personal delivery of lyrics, as well as for her abandoned and soaring scat lines.
