Fresh-faced, poised and professional Jazz vocalist Amy Yassinger (nicknamed the “jazz singer”) has been building her singing career for a decade. As a bandleader and recording artist, her music has been heard in festivals, events and cruises both in America and overseas. What sets Amy apart from other Jazz vocalists in her age group, is her versatility and ability to dissect a song and make it her own. In addition to singing the classics of the Great American Songbook, Amy can nail contemporary songs effortlessly. Not only can she improvise over a melody, but she can take any ballad and rip your heart out. Her first album, “Sometimes I’m Happy”, features the unparallelled talents of Jeremy Kahn on piano, George Fludas on drums, John Tate on bass, Doug Rosenberg on Saxophone, and Chris Siebold on guitar. It has received rave reviews and radio play in the Chicagoland area. Her Jazz album,
“Sometimes I’m Happy” has sold internationally and is now being distributed by Warrior Records.
