SHIRA - Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, Shira's beautiful voice has enthralled audiences throughout the United States, Europe, Israel, and Asia. She performed with Norman Leyden as his premier vocalist with symphony orchestras across the country for over thirteen years. Shira's live performances from the great American songbook are noted for her ability to thrillingly recreate each song in her own style, making every performance fresh and vibrant.
NANCY CURTIN - "Nancy Curtin's vocal interpretations in native Portuguese are mesmerizing and sweet, suggesting she's been a Brazilian jazz singer all her life. One does not have to speak the language to feel the emotion - now that's a singer! I think the Girl from Portland has found her musical calling." Southern Oregon concert promoter
TOM GRANT - Tom Grant, master instrumentalist, talented singer and natural entertainer nimbly walks the line between jazz tradition and modern pop. His inspired songwriting produces propulsive R&B grooves, infectious melodic hooks, and stylish ballads with equal ease. He plays jazz piano with the harmonic sophistication and deep sense of swing that only comes from more than four decades on the bandstand.
