DeeAnne Gorman

Heralding from the South, DeeAnne Gorman grew up with music, studying voice, dance and various musical instruments. Through school, she participated in local and statewide choruses and concert bands, and sang with/directed a 4-part harmony madrigal group. After graduating from The George Washington University in Washington, DC, and continuing studies at The New School in New York, she moved to France, where she discovered French song and performed with Studio Voices of Paris.

Once back in New York City, she began merging - morphing - musical theater, pop and jazz song. Exposed to rising talents as well as established legends on the jazz scene and listening more and more to her favorites (Ernestine Anderson, Ella Fitzgerald, Shirley Horn, Jimmy Scott), she started focusing on her own interpretations of standards. Profiting from the city's wealth of musical treasures: vocal studies with composer Catherine Aks, jazz singer/professor Amy London, piano with Tardo Hammer, and attending the renowned Barry Harris jazz workshops, DeeAnne also checked out the numerous jam sessions held nightly around town. At Arturo's, Cleopatra's Needle, Lenox Lounge, the Local 802 Musicians' Union, former Robin's Nest and St. Nick's Pub, she thrilled to sit in with musicians both known and new to the scene.
