“Audrey’s joyful and silky voice is amazing” – James Valentine, Maroon 5
Audrey Bernstein returns to the Spruce Peak Arts stage for an evening of jazz standards, American songbook, and some Audrey originals, as you’ve never heard them before! Known for her wonderful phrasing, clear voice (hints of Julie London, Anita O’Day, and Nora Jones), exceptional musicality, and her beguiling stage presence (a pinch of Marilyn, a dash of Frank), jazz singer Audrey Bernstein makes time sparkle. She is a natural entertainer, with the ability to captivate and inspire her audiences with her warm voice, charm, and delicate mastery of tone.” Described as “classic” and “endearingly sexy”, with “the chops to deliver an emotional wallop”, Bernstein is spontaneous, nuanced, and swings like crazy. Audrey will be accompanied by Tom Cleary, John Rivers, Geza Carr, and special guest Patricia Julien. Special introduction by VPR’s Host of Friday Night Jazz, Reuben Jackson.
Audrey Bernstein’s exceptional jazz career comes from a lifetime of entertaining. She has brought people together with her radiant spirit and easy glamour throughout her life and through diverse careers: fabulous party promoter, chic baker, lifestyle guru, and World Cup Snowboard Champion. Her dedication to a lifetime of creativity has successfully attracted both diverse and star-studded crowds and media attention to her many creative projects. She has been featured in many national publications, TV and radio shows, and on-line media, including Martha Stewart, Entertainment Tonight, and the Los Angeles Times.
Now based out of Vermont, Bernstein has embraced her long-time love and propensity for singing. Pulling from her years of unique experiences, she fuses together her love of music with her entertaining spirit to create a unique and utterly fun jazz experience. Described as “classic” and “endearingly sexy”, with “the chops to deliver an emotional wallop”, she is spontaneous, nuanced, and swings like crazy.
Her latest new album ALRIGHT, OKAY, YOU WIN, released on June 1st, 2015, has received great praise, and both of her are available on iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon, Spotify, and Pandora. It features world-class musicians such as Ray Vega of the famous Vega Brothers, Joe Capps, Geza Carr, John Rivers, Michael Zsoldos, and the award-winning Joey Sommerville.
Currently, Bernstein is working on a new EP due to be released 2017. She has been performing regionally at events including the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival, and Newport Vermont Jazz Festival, and in New York City at venues including Birdland, and Rockwood Music Hall, with legendary musicians such as Vince Giordano.
