Jody Sandhaus

Every now and again a singer comes along who so personally delivers a song that we are ourselves moved to feel more deeply--to appreciate life more fully, in all its joy and pain; and to see things as she sees them, as facets of the wonderful gift that is life. Jody Sandhaus is such a singer. John Williams, writing in HOT HOUSE NY Jazz Nightlife Guide, says, “Jody sings so gently and carefully about love that we are encouraged to imagine and define with clarity our arrival to love and our continuance in that dream.”

Of course, the artist must have the craft to bring the art to life, and Jody began to develop her formidable skills as a child. Born in Houston to a musical family and moving to New York early on, she was exposed to the wonders of classical music and studied the piano with Dolores Soyer Gold. While taking her degree in Liberal Arts at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Jody continued her pursuit of music at the Cleveland Institute of Music, where she studied piano and voice. As a singer, Jody had enjoyed singing the popular music of her youth, but it was while living in St. Maarten, in the West Indies, that she found a neglected record collection. It was then that she was introduced to the work of Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Maxine Sullivan, Hoagy Carmichael, Frank Sinatra and others--sounds that would shape her musical future.
