Christina Crerar

“What’s rare is to come upon an artist with as much talent and taste as Christina Crerar…” (Samuel Chell, AllAboutJazz.com). Breezy, bright and deserving of wider recognition, Crerar certainly knows the tradition but is more than willing to inject her own spirit and inspiration into the familiar as well as rarely heard gems. While she is steeped in the rhythms, melodies and lyrics of the 1920s to the 1950s, Crerar is not about to neglect modern tunes that sing true to her.

As a vocalist, Christina Crerar’s resume brims with versatility” she blends influences from her performances with jazz groups of all sizes and traditions, musical theatre, contemporary opera, pop and cabaret into her unique sound, creating a presence that seems magically familiar but unquestionably her own.

Christina Crerar has begun receiving acclaim for her new jazz vocal CD entitled “Little Jazz Bird”. The disc is a collection of updated standards and lesser-known gems. Currently being played on radio stations in the US and Japan, it has sold world-wide including Japan, Spain, England, Switzerland, Austria, Portugal and Germany. Supported by top-notch instrumentalists and inventive arrangements, Christina is a singer you don't want to miss.

In addition to performing, Christina is a private voice teacher/vocal coach with a Bachelor of Music from Catholic University, Washington DC and certification in Somatic Voicework, the Lovetri Method from Shenandoah University

”It only seems there are more talented jazz divas than listeners, but it's a competitive field, to say the least. Despite strong bids by Karrin Allyson, Cheryl Bentyne, Ann Hampton Callaway, Tierney Sutton, and Diana Krall (to name a few), Christina Crerar's Little Jazz Bird is an overachiever that keeps winning my heart and respect along with repeated playings. In fact, it takes the gold in every event except the commercial one.”

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
