Born in Concord, CA, birthplace of the legendary Concord Jazz Festival and Concord Records....it seems Ms Patterson has been destined to sing jazz all her life.
Although Broadway is where her home has been, jazz music has always been like home. From the time she was a little girl, jazz was played around the house but it was during family dinners on Sunday’s that her Dad introduced her to legendary jazz recordings. She would borrow her Dad’s albums and steal away into her bedroom to listen for hours, learning, singing along.
Meredith's show has been hailed as a fresh, young, and sultry evening of jazz standards. Drawing from childhood memories with her jazz percussionist father, Patterson’s sound is lush and rich bringing together her musical theatre background with her jazz roots.
Meredith's solo jazz show, Sweet Old Fashioned Girl debuted March 15th 2010 at the legendary Birdland Jazz Club in New York City and was such a success she was asked to return May 16th. Her next venue is the elegant and prestigious Feinstein's at The Regency on Park Avenue August 31st.

Meredith has the virtually indescribable quality of a real
star, a glowing presence that permeates every note she sings,
every step she dances and every line she speaks. Broadway is
just the beginning, with this artist, the sky is the limit
