Josephine Livoti

Josephine Livoti is a versatile jazz vocalist based in New York City. She began her career in music as an alto member of the New York Choral Society. There she developed a love for the works of Bach, especially hearing his compositions improvised in jazz settings.

Her well-rounded repertoire includes songs from the Great American Song Book and compositions by jazz and Brazilian masters. Josephine's voice is warm and rich in tone and she delivers her lyrics with clarity and soulfulness.

Josephine's vocal influences include Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Billy Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Carmen McRae, Sarah Vaughan, Betty Carter and Brazilian vocalist Elis Regina. Today, Josephine's creative inspiration for her singing comes from jazz and other instrumentalists whose musical expression blends the old with the new, and who look to the world for their audience.
