ABOUT

I have always had a great affinity for jazz, particularly standards recorded during the early-to-mid 20th century. While studying theatre in college, I met a few seasoned musicians who have been fantastic mentors and friends. It is my experience in the theatre that has shaped me as an interpreter of these timeless standards. ://.audramariel
