ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The song is Audrey! Anyone who has ever watched Audrey perform responds to her openness and confidence as a vocal artist, to the exquisite beauty of her voice (clear, warm, strong), but also to her range of emotion and authenticity in delivery. When Audrey interprets a song—whether she paints a ballad story or kicks an uptempo variation; laments the blues or grooves a Bossa Nova; swings a standard or wrings out a soul oldie--the experience is always unique and satisfying.

Audrey is a singer’s singer. She takes risks and leaves you satisfied. She surprises and thrills with notes that push a melody to new heights. She turns and coaxes a lyric until it becomes a reflection of your own experience. She shapes and colors phrasing and rhythm until the music she hears reappears like a Picasso interpretation of a familiar tune.

Long before Audrey thought about being a vocal artist, she recalls that at a young age she was mesmerized by June Christy in concert. That experience remained a cameo, locked in her imagination, until music began to play a more serious part of her life. Although Audrey grew up playing classical piano, she added acoustic and electric rhythm guitar in the folk-rock generation of Dylan and the Beatles. She studied dance (ballet and jazz) and acting (ACT, Actor’s Workshop, etc.) and spent several years on stage in New York and in San Francisco.

Bay Area vocal training taught Audrey to blend her clear, strong alto voice with her higher register, thus providing her with the chops to express a full range of musical ideas—and ultimately, the freedom for jazz interpretation.

Audrey embraces many different styles, singers and songwriters, but the vocal artists that have had a lasting influence on her are Mark Murphy and Madeline Eastman.
Audrey’s unique style and choice of material can best be described as “Eclectic, Pop, Jazz with Latin/Jazz/Funk influences.
