JANE MONHEIT

“a voice of phenomenal beauty”
–The New York Times

A vocalist with remarkable virtuosity and innate interpretative skills, Jane Monheit puts her own unique touch on beloved jazz standards, classic torch songs and contemporary pop. The two-time Grammy nominee and runner up of the prestigious Thelonious Monk Vocal Competition will be touring in support of her most recent release of American Songbook and jazz standards, 2021’s Come What May.

Monheit grew up on Long Island amongst a family of musicians. She made her professional singing debut while still in high school before enrolling in the Manhattan School of Music. During this time, Monheit was thrust into the public eye with a 2nd place finish at the highly prestigious Thelonious Monk Jazz Institute’s vocal competition.

Two years later, at the age of 22, she released her debut record Never Never Land that boasted appearances from jazz legends like Kenny Barron, Ron Carter, Bucky Pizzarelli and others. Her follow-up, 2001’s Come Dream with Me, debuted at number 1 on the Billboard jazz charts. She has since released nine more records, including 2013’s critically-acclaimed The Heart of the Matter, and her most recent, 2021’s Come What May. She has also appeared on the albums of many other artists over the years, including Terence Blanchard, Tom Harrell, Freddy Cole, Mark O’Connor, David Benoit, and Ivan Lins. Monheit has been nominated for two Grammy’s and has toured the world’s finest jazz halls with her trio.

Please Note: For some non-classical concerts, the window behind the stage may need to be covered for acoustical purposes. We do not always know which artists will need the window closed, but at a certain level of amplification, it is necessary.
