Thos Shipley

Equally at home in the most intimate New York and international jazz clubs (as well as the stately magnificence of Carnegie Hall' Weill Recital Hall), Shipley's jazz and R&B vocal pyrotechnics have put him in a category that is singularly his own.

An Army-brat son of a jazz musician, his musical journey began when Leslie Uggams discovered him singing in Atlanta. She beckoned him North and introduced him in a solo show to a celebrity-packed room at the Claridge in Atlantic City. This then hit the New York club scene, performing at various jazz venues. Before long, he rose to new heights, performing an SRO concert in the Weill at Carnegie Hall, playing the Spoleto Festival and performing in a one-man Off-Broadway show, “Broadway Goes Jazz.”
