V. Shayne Frederick V. Shayne Frederick

V. Shayne Frederick is a pianist, vocalist and poet. He began his formal musical study at Dartmouth College, and then later in a local Jazz ensemble in Philadelphia led by the legendary organist, pianist, composer and vocalist Trudy Pitts. His informal musical study, however, began at birth. V. Shayne was born in North Carolina to musician parents— his mother, a pianist and vocalist, and his father, a saxophonist. Even still, music would come later than childhood for him. As a self-taught pianist and vocalist, his craft has been honed at jam sessions, on bandstands, in concert halls, and behind pianos at a multitude of venues over the last decade: Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Barnes Foundation, SugarHouse Casino, Suzanne Roberts Theatre, Resorts Casino, Society Hill Playhouse, Philadelphia Clef Club for Performing Arts, the African-American Museum in Philadelphia, and Art Sanctuary, just to name a few stages. Positioned to be one of the premiere jazz vocalists of Philadelphia, V. Shayne has a melodic classic sound with a contemporary and creative personal touch.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
