Audrey Silver – Vocals and Native American Flute, Bruce Barth – Piano and Organ, Paul Beaudry – Bass, Anthony Pinciotti – Drums, Marcus Printup – Trumpet, Tom Beckham – Vines and Marc Ciprut – Guitar
With a growing catalog of outstanding recordings and warm, swinging performing style, Audrey Silver is one of the most elegantly creative singers in jazz today. Audrey has released three albums as a leader through her production company Messy House Productions: Here in My Arms, Dream Awhile, and Very Early.
In 2016 Audrey released her third album, Very Early, which included a stellar line up of backing musicians including Bruce Barth on piano and Lewis Nash on drums. The album offered a broad array of music from American Songbook standards, originals, to contemporary tunes and a French song all creatively arranged by singer, composer, and Berklee professor, Steven Santoro.
Now in 2019 she is poised to release her fourth album, Let Me Know Your Heart which will feature Barth back again on piano, trumpeter Marcus Printup, upright bassist Paul Beaudry, drummer Anthony Pinciotti, vibist Tom Beckham and guitarist Gary Ciprut. The album is centered artistically and emotionally on Audrey’s six newly-penned original songs (out of fourteen total tracks). Crediting musical luminaries as diverse as Bill Evans,
Annie Lennox and Arnold Schoenberg as influences on her artistry, Audrey has found new challenges and satisfaction in becoming a songwriter.
Receiving high praise from the jazz press, JazzTimes.com noted that “her clarity and enunciation on par with the great Jo Stafford and her breath control – a talent so often, and so wrongfully, overlooked – rivals Sinatra’s.” The same website reinforced a comparison she has heard her entire performing life: “Not since Karen Carpenter have I heard such a strong alto voice that is so pure and so convincing.”
