About The Musicians
Vocalist Michelle Lordi wants to tell you a story, so sit back, pour yourself a cocktail and listen. The story you will hear will be sung with cool, uncorrupted understatement that swings with a clear, warm, seductive voice that is lovely and unforgettable.
So many jazz singers today have forgotten the importance of the lyric and original melody. Michelle lives by these principles and as a result the music she creates with her fabulous band is pure, sweet and beautiful. She doesn't try to be someone she isn't- her voice is all her own and is embellished, not overshadowed by her band mates Sonny Troy ( Peggy Lee, Louis Prima, Blossom Dearie) and Larry McKenna's ( Rosemary Clooney, Frank Sinatra, Woody Herman) combined 120+ (!) years of jazz musicianship.
Michelle is receiving national and international acclaim for her recently released CD, “Drive”, which was produced by and features pianist Orrin Evans. “Drive” takes listeners on a captivating personal journey, mining favorites from her varied repertoire of American Songbook classics and modern pop hits. Drive is currently being played on more than 100 Jazz radio stations across the US and internationally.
